She Says: Good News. . . and bad news.

The good news is that we found a replacement for runner #8!

The brother of one of our team members has graciously volunteered, on short notice, to fill in. He runs at an 8:30 pace and is in training for an Ironman. Who knows, he may end up being one of our quickest runners!

The bad news is that we had ANOTHER runner drop. We had barely secured a replacement for the first absentee, when I got the news that yet another sub was needed. These shoes might be a little harder to fill. The open spot is for the 2nd longest and hardest position -a total of more than 19 miles and is categorized as “Very Hard.” Great . . .

Worst case scenario, we split these three legs up and divvy them out amongst our current runners.  That will leave some pulling 4 legs, but I’m hopeful that those with light mileage will be up for the challenge.

    Oh dear. Praying it all works out and you guys find a runner to replace him. Those definitely do sound like big shoes to fill! Don’t give up!!
    You’re making me realize that a relay race sounds like a blast. Hmmmm…..maybe in the future…!!
