|Not sure how they all ended up with corn rows, but that's team spirit for ya!|
|Pretty basketball players in front of the Grand Ole Opry.|
I am so thrilled at the basketball opportunities she has had this summer (and the last two as well). I know she is sad to see it all come to an end. She'll be a senior this year….then maybe college ball? I sure hope so.
Team Put on Your Big Girl Panties (#602) is non competitive. We are a slower team, with one of the earliest start times on Friday (6am). Many of the girls have run this relay before, and know the ins and outs.
2. Now that A is home, I'm leaving. The Cascade Lakes Relay starts tomorrow in eastern Oregon!
We start at Diamond Lake Resort and finish in Bend.
|Altitude and heat.|
We've rented a house in Sunriver. Van 1 will return to the house between one of their legs and sleep on the course for the other. Van 2 (my van!) will return to the house during both breaks! S keeps making fun of me, that this won't be a REAL relay experience. I don't care. Mama gets to shower!
I don't think I've mentioned yet that we have a cook too. One of my runner buddies chose not to compete, but wants to share the weekend with us. She is the best chef.
My van is down a runner, so I'm taking on 4 legs. Why not? Based on our estimated times, I'll be starting at
3pm (4 miles, extra leg)
7:20pm (5 miles, runner 12)
7am (6.5 miles)
5:15 pm (6.2 miles)
I don't have to run in the dark!
S laughed when I told him I took on an extra leg. I can't wait to finish and tell him how awesome we all were and what a great time I had.
3. S isn't all bad. He suggested we go by Lululemon at lunch yesterday.
|They call it Granite.|
Now, to create four race outfits and put them in gallon size bags. It's time to put on my big girl panties!
