Van #2 Just getting ready to start
I was runner #10 and I was super pumped because my sweet little sister Sam was brave enough to agree to this madness with me. (Very comforting as weird as that sounds) It was nice to have someone close to me there so that we could be scared together. haha but she was runner #9 which come to find out, runners 9 and 10 are the HARDEST legs of the entire race.... hahaha Seriously? that's what I said. I was also pumped to find out that my cute mom had volunteered to be our van driver (another comforting thought) and off we went! scared as I was, everything went perfectly. We got there just before our first runner was going to take the hand off from our other van and it had all started before I could make myself any more nervous. Long story short, our 1st legs that were supposed to be a breeze ended up being at the hottest part of the day which caught me off guard because my 1st leg was only 4 miles but it took a lot out of me! normally 4 miles would not have even started to phase me but try it in 100 degree weather on asphalt...it's a whole different game.
Just finishing the 1st leg.
