In honor of throw back Thursday I am going to give a small recap of a race I got to participate in last year and will be running again next month:
The Kal-Haven Relay!!
|Monica, Molly, Me, Nikia, Steve (in back), Jenni, and Jade.|
This race is a 33.5 mile course that can be run as an individual or with teams from 2 to 6 people. Since I am not an ultra runner (yet) we had a group of 6! The trail system goes from Kalamazoo to South Haven Michigan. It is dirt and gravel with rolling hills. Each person has a different length they run for each leg of the race.
|Monica at the starting line!|
Each time we reached the next person we may or may not have been giving them a slap on the ass to get them moving for their leg. Monica didn’t get hers slapped. This year she runs last. We will get her!
When I got to mile 7 I tried to call my teammates so they knew to be ready for me and the service was so bad we couldn’t hear each other. They thought something had went wrong and sent help for me!
When we got there Steve (Jades husband) and I took this picture and sent it too her as she was running for good luck. Aren’t we sweet???
Leg 6 Jenni 3.5 miles.
She got to run in the last leg and bring home the finish for us. She said this section was filled with gorgeous rolling hills. We all got together and met her at the bottom of a large hill that came up to the finish line and ran her in. Chicks With Kicks…Kal-Haven Relay..Done!
Have you ever run a relay like this (ragnar etc)????
