Cori the Relay Runner?

I had an interesting BBM conversation this week with my friend Sue from Sylvan Lake.   She decided to put together a team for the K-100 Relay Race in June and wanted to know if I was interested in joining.

 

To be honest, I hadn't even thought about it.  I was aware of the race, since it's a Hostels International race (they also host the Last Chance Half).  I've followed several bloggers through their amazing relay experiences and have found it to be a very exciting idea.  I'm already running in the Rick Hansen Relay. I've just never thought about DOING a relay race.

Well, as you know from the opportunities that ave been knocking on my door this past couple of years...I have a hard time turning down new experiences.

SO, I SAID YES!

The race is June 23rd and runs between Longview and Nakiska.  I don't know what leg I will be doing yet (in fact, that is a reminder that I should review them and let Sue know what my top 3 choices are).  No matter what I choose, it's definitely going to be a beautiful race. Maybe even beautiful enough to make me not realize there are so many hills...

So, as soon as I am done Vancouver - this will be the race I am training for.   I have a feeling 2012 is going to be a very interesting year!

  3. Yep :) I would love to be a part of the relay, but it seems i'm expecting (a surprise) baby #3! That is why i've been so jealous of all your great, fun and cool running plans for 2012. I just heard the little critter's heart beat this morning.

  6. I'm always in the city on Saturdays anyway so we can figure out a good time and I'll meet up with you after my long run. Maybe we could do lunch! Let me know what you think and we can try to connect that way. coritherunner@gmail.com
