I got roped into this relay last minute and to be honest wasn't too excited going into it. It was an interesting experience to say the least and I will say that I have a new found respect for you crazy ultra marathoners. I ran 5 legs that totaled around 25 miles. I was pleased with most of my splits despite severe DOMS and sleep deprivation.
I probably took the relay a little too seriously. In fact, I may have had an out burst or two when teammates over estimated how long my legs would take and weren't at the exchange on time. Oops. And one of people I yelled at may have been my husbands boss. Double oops. I'll blame the sleep deprivation on that.
The video sums it up pretty well:
Once I threw my sour attitude and overly competitive spirit out the window, I ended up having a great time with the guys and was glad to experience this aspect of running. Despite our added "transition times", we still won the military division. Yay! I highly recommend it to anyone considering an ultra relay. It's nice to get the team aspect back every once in awhile :)
