...we got our asses over the pass!
The Wild West Relay was a BLAST and something I definitely would do again! We finished in about 34 hours total as we sent our final runner over the finish line and ran in together at about 4 PM Saturday in Steamboat Springs, CO.
Shannon and I had THREE layovers to get home yesterday and started out by leaving Steamboat at 6 AM, driving the three hours to the Denver airport, running through security to get to our gate then flying to Memphis (for a two hour layover) then to Atlanta (for a THREE hour layover...spent eating chips and salsa at Chili's and having some much needed girl talk) then finally back home to good ole Charleston, SC.
When we finally walked out of the airport we were welcomed by a familiar wave of thick humidity. It was good to be back at sealevel again!
Hopefully I can get a full report up for you guys ASAP...we took tons of pictures too so it should be a good one :)
Let's just say this report will include...roadside dancing, 4 AM runs through open range cattle country, Baby Got Back/John Denver/and other appropriately themed drive-by cheering & jeering, more granola/protein bars than any one person should ever consume, The Taco Blog, AMAZING ATHLETES...and tons of crazy and delirious fun with our teammates!
I'm tired. I'm exhausted. I'm probably a little crazy this morning, but I wouldn't trade it for anything!
