Wow! I LOVE this race!!! Red Rock Relay in Moab--70 miles, 6 people, one van, 12 hours--perfect!! I started off at 6:35 am to the most gorgeous weather and scenery you could imagine. This was also the best I felt and I ran my first leg of 6.5 miles under 8 minute miles. Personal best.
Can it get more gorgeous than this?
John did pretty well. He started his training LAST WEEK because he's been so busy at work, lousy weather to run in and then got sick... excuses--but he ran/walked a 5.4 mile leg and walked a 3-mile uphill leg.
Dan and Heidi--fun friends we ran with and they were nice enough to lend their car for the race.
Again, gorgeous Moab backdrops.
More fun friends to run with--Scott and Lauretta.
Have to be honest--the women tore it up! Between the 3 of us, we ran 40 of the 70 miles...
My last leg of 7.62 miles. Ran a little over 8 minute miles on street and trails--very fun but a little warm at 80 degrees.
