Tam Premsrirath’s elementary school class is trying to raise money for a trip to Washington, DC. We hit upon the idea to put on a Sweetheart’s Relay in order to help with this fundraising effort (and to get in a nice run).
We came up with a course through Naples and made it 2.14M per person. The idea of the run was for Sweethearts to run together. Of the (ironically) 14 couples, maybe 4 of them were actual couples. There ended up being more men than women, so there were a number of Male-Male (good friend) “couples.”
My partner was Tam herself (which was fine since her boyfriend was more of a cyclist than a runner). I ran about 17 minutes (over 2 big hills, aka the 2nd Street Bridge), but it was more fun than anything else and she raised $600.
