Rainier to Runston Relay

On June 5th, I ran in my VERY FIRST RACE! It was the Rainier to Ruston Relay. I had such a blast- I really hope all of us get together to do it again next year.
We each ran 3 of the 12 legs that covered the 50 miles from the base of the mountain to a cute little park on the water.
Dale brought the kiddos to meet up with us at the end. Brighton went for a run too.
Here's our team (well, some are missing) "Movefasta." There were 16 of us, so we ran in groups of four on each leg.
One of our drivers took this- amazing! I can't believe we ran that far! You can see Mt. Rainier, where we started, in the background.

Here's my race stats (I'm pretty proud of myself, for my very first race!):
Leg 1- 4.8 miles in 38 minutes
Leg 5- 4.6 miles in 39 minutes 16 seconds
Leg 9- 3.7 miles in 33 minutes 26 seconds

Total: 13.1 miles; 1 hour 50 minutes and 42 seconds

I've become a crazy runner. I love it. My next race is Ragnar, in just a few weeks!

wow kim! way to go! I need some of your motivation. I am not a fast runner at all. I ran 3.1 miles in 34 mins and you added almost another mile in one minute less than that. You are amazing! Keep it up!
