When I was invited on a team I was so so so excited. I waited a whole year to run this race and it was totally worth it. I was in the second van and I was runner 11 out of 12 so I basically waited ALL day to run. We ran it in Colorado which is very high in elevation. My first run was through the town of Avon which is just outside of Vail.
My Second run was at about 5:00 in the morning, this is me being up pretty much all night waiting for the other runners in my van to run. I started my run when it was pitch black outside. My run was along a trail next to a river not on a road. And let me tell you I was so scared of Bears. We saw signs everywhere saying beware of bears, and well since my last race I saw two bears I was understandably very paranoid. I wore my bear bell and it was the fastest I have every ran. Talk about motivation!
The are my awesome friends that I was able to run with. I also ran with my brother-in-law Dan and two other people that I didn't know very well but go to know pretty good after spending two days pretty much non-stop with them! We had such a good time!
