My team's estimated finish time is 26:25, we are in the Mixed Submasters division. I am running leg 11 and so am obviously in Van 2. I think if I could have picked I would have been in van 1, but more than anything I am THRILLED to be on a team and able to take part in this.
My first run is leg 11 is 4.84 miles and is rated easy. It will also be in the afternoon I am guessing based on our start time, and has little to no shade so will be HOT.
Second run is leg 23 is 4.18 miles and is rated easy. I am guessing this one will be sometime during the night, so it will be dark. I will get to sport the reflective vest and headlamp for this one.
Last run I will be doing for HTC is leg 35 is 7.2 miles and is rated hard. If we finish around our expected finish time this leg will be around 8 in the morning, and sometime before 10 am I will be on the beach! Having never been on the west coast I am very excited about this. I have been to Maui so it won't be the first time I have been to the Pacific Ocean.
Having also read so many fun, awesome, crazy blog posts about Hood to Coast and Ragnar relays I am excited to get to find out all about the relay experience first hand instead of just living vicariously through everyone else.
I am really hoping to get to meet some of the awesome bloggers I have met in the last year since I started my blog. I feel like I have been dreaming about doing this relay for so long, and in 17 days it will become a reality. !!
So super thankful for the Montana Beef Council for being a major team sponsor and to the Western Ag Reporter for also being a super contributor.
Have you run Hood to Coast before or are running it this year?
If so what legs have you done/ are doing?
Do you know your start time?
