I have the Red Eye Relay this weekend and I'm really looking forward to it! There are 61 teams total running this 100 mile race. My team "The Dawn Chasers" will start running at 4pm on Saturday. We should finish by 9am the next day! That's the fun part...out on country roads in the middle of the night with who knows what out there with you! EEK! Our team consists of 3 tri athlete finishers, and 2 marathon finishers and me (which I will complete my first marathon in October at the Marine Corp Marathon YEAH!)!!! I'm hoping we'll do well, but I haven't trained as hard for this race as I did for it last year. I remember the hills were horrible and the heat just about killed you. I'm hoping the rain stays away this weekend, I'd hate to have to deal with muddy dirt roads as well as hills, heat, and humidity. I'm crossing my finishers we just make it to the finish line and enjoy breakfast together as a team!!! Also I'm looking forward to the crazy night of hanging out with some really great people. I'll post again after the race!!!
