Hana Relay Weekend
The Hana Relay was last weekend and as usual no one ran since last year's Relay. In fact we didn't have a team until the night before. No Problemo! We pulled it out of our asses and made it for the 6 a.m. start with a team (almost). Steve was still in bed but made it for his first leg.
The Team minus a few.
Danny, our traditional start man takes the first leg.
Scotty in his first relay, and sporting a slight 6 pints the night before hangover, puts in a strong showing.
Michelle, (3 months after knee surgery) a seasoned Relayer, burns up the pavement.
Steve, finally gets out of bed, & does his first leg in a pair of running shoes one size too small.
I did one leg. Ran down hill, had a mild cardiac arrest, and couldn't make the uphill section.
Speed walkers, Danny and Scotty, make a smooth batten pass.
Steve stretches muscles while Michelle sticks a flag in his ass.
Danny sums up what it feels like to run three legs
Michelle takes the last leg and brings it home. It's party time!
Quick bite to eat, and crack into the cold beers.
Martina and I rehydrate.
Jamie and Nancy host a party every year.
This year was an "aquatic " theme.
And Danny didn't know what to make of it.......
Next day was recovery beach day and the shorebreak was body surfable.
Good job everyone.
Can't wait till next years run.
