For the first time in my own personal Ekiden Relay history, I didn’t get drawn for 3 miles OR 4 miles (I have yet to get 1 mile – bleh.). However, on my team, Beverly Andrew (who I only see at this event, and her bevy of kids that get older and older each time) doesn’t really want to run 3 miles. So… we switch. Now my ‘streak’ is intact.
I ran 22:14 for the 3 miler – a good time, considering that there is a substantial uphill portion. There were also 5 other people from AREC. It makes me feel like I am not imposing on the good will of the A Snail’s Pace group, though I am friends or acquaintances with nearly everyone at this event.
