Colorado Relay - August 26,27 2011

I ran in the Colorado Relay August 26 - 27, 2011.

The Pickled Prostates came in 2nd Overall, wining the Masters Division for the 6th time in 7 years.

We were beaten by the Young Guns again, but we were a bit closer this year.

It was an interesting and fun race. I ended up running 2 downhill segments, as we mixed up the team order, which was legal this year to take advantage of strengths and weaknesses. I did 18 miles total, including down Vail Pass and Berneo Pass

My third leg was short (3.6 miles) , but the most interesting, with a car fire on the course in Glennwood Springs, lost runners but not me! and passing the Weed Wackers while they were lost and holding them off to the end.

Here's a link to the blog post I made on the Pickled Prostates site with the team details and some pictures.

That's my 9th relay. They are so much fun, nice to have them a month apart this year, that helped to mix up the training and recover between.
