Chris (Leg #7) and I exchanged high five's and off I went!
That is my white shirt/black butt after the exchange.
Me running next to a wheat field.
The scenery was pretty but my mouth was parched from all the wind drying me out. This nice paved road turned into a gravel road. When cars passed by, I got the pleasure to be covered in road dust! But I finally made it to the exchange point, with a time of about 1:20, which was 10 minutes slower than I had guessed. I don't think that's bad since I was running against 20+mph winds the whole time. Eh.
I look like I'm speed walking!
Then I got to drive the car while Roger (Leg #9) and Kirk (Leg #10) ran. Here is their exchange and Kirk finishing.
Then there was BBQ because we actually had 3 teams racing. There was a Kids team of Middle/High School kids, the Adult team- Angry Birds, and then the Fulmer Hall Team - Nerd Herd.
As a team we finished at 5:39PM, which was one minute faster than planned! WOO!!!
Today I am sore and hobbling with the usual "Someone kicked me in the butt" feeling. Today is a rest day. Tomorrow I plan on going light and then a week and I half to train for the 12K Bloomsday on May 1 in Spokane!
