This weekend, I participated in the Red Rock Relay. It is a 187 mile relay race from Brian Head, UT to Zion. Our team consisted my husband, all but one of his siblings, their spouses, the two oldest grandchildren and me ;)
We each ran 3 legs in the race, and I ran about 12 1/2 miles of that 187 miles. Our total teams time was just under 29 hours, which is averaging a little less than 9 1/2 minute miles. And no, I can not run even close to that fast :) Thank heaves for my awesome team who totally averaged out my miles and times! I married into a family of amazing runners!!!
I experienced a whole gamut of emotions during the race. I went from fun and bouncy, to heat exhaustion and throwing up, and then back around to the complete joy and elation of having a good run and finishing it up the way I wanted to. This was my first time ever doing any kind of race like this. And it was a crazy physical and emotional rollercoaster for sure.
But I can stand back now and be so grateful that I accomplished this!! I have already been asked if I would do it again, and I can say, With this family, absolutely!!!
I am so grateful to be a part of such an amazing family!!! They encouraged me along every step of the way and made this such a fun and wonderful experience and a memory that I will always cherish. Thank you Corry's!!!!!
