Sasha and his Fast Running Blog friends took us to task early and continued to turn the screw throughout the race. We kept it fairly close (6-7 minutes back) throughout the first 12 legs, but by the end they were well out of reach when they took the well-earned victory.
I had a great time with our fantastic team, and I'll post some pics and video once I get it sorted out. Right now I'm out the door for a slightly sore and very slow recovery run. I was truly inspired by the great running by our team out there, as everyone really seemed to put out their best efforts, leg after leg. Special thanks also go out to Sharon Bart and The Running Shop, who sponsored us for the race, and to my pal Lucas for putting it all together.
Hope you have a great weekend.
