Women of Steel Relay - September 24, 2016

We've come to love the Women of Steel Relay which begins and ends in Midway, Utah and only involves women running 54 miles. They suggest you do it with 6 runners each running three legs but we had 9 ladies that wanted to do it. One dropped out last minute so everyone had two legs to run except Brittany Smith and I had three legs.

I was the first runner and the race started at 7:30 am with a slight drizzle. Temperature was perfect for running though and the rain stopped for the majority of the race.

This was Hailey's first relay so she was a bit nervous but found her stride and ran REALLY fast!

Lauretta always skips into the exchanges...

We came in 2nd place out of 27 teams and finished in less than 7 hours! About 30% of the teams dropped out due to the weather prior to the race so we get 50% off next year because we showed up!
