[Relay'ing]

* * * * * * * * * *

As a reformed team sports girl (softball, volleyball, basketball) running relays are MY JAM.  I love knowing there are other people relying on me, and that my runs are about more than just me.  That to get to the finish line each person has to buy into the goal together, and it’s up to the sum of those efforts whether you succeed or not.

Plus you can’t tell me anything sounds cooler than driving around in a big van with a bunch of your best run-friends, not sleeping, and running a million miles.

Here’s a collection of my relay’ing adventures – believe me, this is just the start…
