I ran the 9th leg of the race.  I was on the team "2 slow 2 win, 2 dumb 2 quit".  It was an awesome team.  I didn't know what to expect with the relay expericence because this was my 1st.  I was nervious that if I went to hard my legs would be dead for the last leg.  I threw caution to the wind and went out hard.  My predicted time was 6:14 miles and I ended up with 6:12 miles.  It was hard not having other people around to race against but knowing that I was on a team trying to do our best but still have fun I was able to push it.  I couldn't even see anyone in front of me until I'd run about a mile and a half.  I finally caught my only roadkill of the 1st leg with about a half mile to go.  He had on his headphones and didn't hear me coming and he about jumped out of his shorts when I passed him. 

I did enjoy hearing that comments give to me by my teamates.  The said that the volunteers when they saw me shoot out of the exchange said, "wow, he is going fast, can he keep that up the whole way?" in which my teamates said "we think he can". 

It was fun handing out water and watching the other guys run.  I enjoyed watching Verdons race againts two skinny women up the canyon.  He held them off on the way up the canyon but when he summited the mountain and headed down one of them caught him. 

See next day for the rest of the race
