Well, the rumor is true. After being on the run for almost 2 full years, we were caught and spent some time in the slammer, the joint, the click, the big house if you will. We escaped though, and as a group, The Repeat Offenders were on the run!
Our mug shots weren’t that pretty, but what do you expect before 8AM?
That’s right. This past weekend, we embarked on our 2nd Frostbite Marathon Relay. Our first one was back in 2011. Red and Spike came back as returning members, but we recruited four new fresh faces for our team; Donna and Rachel (friends from my RunGR group) and Jen B and Nichole (friends of Red and Spike). And just like last time, we had a blast!
With an 8 person team, everyone’s relay legs were fairly short. However, because of the casual format of the event, nearly everyone took the opportunity to share a leg with someone and run multiple legs. So, I got to run my leg and then run with Jennie on her leg right after mine.
And we’re off!
It was a much bigger crowd than previous years as they increased the number of allowed teams this time.
A quick pic between mine and Jennie’s relay legs.
Finishing off leg number.
Yes, our team “baton” was a pair of fuzzy handcuffs – not ours, and unused (or so we were told…). haha.
Donna and Rachel shared the load and ran both of their legs together as well to get in a solid run.
Donna was getting tired though and had to be dragged in.
My crazy buddy Miguel ran the whole relay by himself. That is just selfish!
Two of our three Jen’s headed out. Red actually ran 3 relay legs because she is hardcore.
Nichole running from the law.
Spike was our anchor leg again this year so we waited for him to finish up.
And then ran in together as a team.
All in all, it was an absolute blast!! See you again next Frostbite!
