First BRR Pics

WE ARE BAAAACK! I caught up on some sleep in the meantime and now I am ready to look at the first pictures from the relay.

We had tons of fun as usual and there are so many stories that need to be told, once it's all sorted out in my head. If I remember correctly, we ended up under 33 hours in total for 207.1 miles from the Grayson Highlands State Park VA to Asheville NC. I ran 16 miles out of that distance and am happy with them. The soreness settled in as soon as I finished my last leg and has just gotten worse from there. I can't remember the last time I was this sore. My ankles (????) and quads are killing me right now. So the plan for today is to do some walking and maybe some swimming, to shake things out.

Here are the first couple of pictures off my camera and I hope to have tons more as soon as everyone has uploaded their stuff in Facebook.

Some people in Van1 thought it was a good idea to have pizza pre race... Actually, not the two on the pic.... Not me either! ;-)

We made sure, that everyone knows our van means business!

Van2 decided to sleep in, so Van1 represented team DNR at the start line... There will be some photo-shopping!

Some people warm-up with push-ups, they are so hard core! ;-)

Parts of Van1 and Van2 at the transition area in Blowing Rock. Van1 about to take over for the second time.

Van1 right before we send our last runner on the road. Ready to be done!

Team Do Not Resuscitate at the finish line in Asheville NC. GO TEAM!!
