Relay Runners Unite

Last month, a few people might have had a chance to watch something cool happen on Twitter...somehow a relay team organically developed.  A bloggy relay team of myself, Michelle of Fine Fettle Frets, Tina of Fabulosi-T and Leana of Runner Leana.

Destination: Banff Ekiden Relay in October.  A five leg relay in Banff, Alberta that Hostels International puts on each year.   And out little team just sort of fell together.  We started a Google Community to plan and tried to come up with a time and place for a meetup.

At the time, the only common connection between us was me - I knew everyone separately but no one else had met each other.  Between that day and now - pretty much everyone had had a chance to actually meet and we were still trying to come up with a common meeting time.  Then - all of a sudden TODAY ended up being free for us all.

Leana had to get a swim in for her half iron training, so the rest of us went for a quick run while she did that:

Stolen from Tina's Instagram, since I am such a total nerd in it...

Super fun run...but this one was all about the we rushed off to meet Leana at Good Earth.

We didn't really talk about the relay for more than 5 minutes, but it was a great meetup...I am really looking forward to getting into the planning with these ladies.  This is sure to be one super fun race! Our costumes should be utterly EPIC!

Of course, put 4 bloggers in a room together and you'd think the cameras would be out every 3.5 seconds...and we all failed spectacularly and forgot to take our first team photo.   Bet that NEVER happens again LOL.


  1. That sounds so fun together! I'm excited for all of you!

  2. Giggle! I'm so excited!!! Thanks for a great morning ladies!

  3. I'm sorry I missed the run! So great to meet everyone together finally!!

  4. You know us bloggers. Words usually come before pictures. Besides, 4 is hard to do as a selfie. So you need to drag in someone else.

  5. That sounds awesome! I've done a few Banff races, and love racing out there. Can't wait to hear about it. :)

  6. Sounds like fun! I've always wanted to do a relay.

  7. Sounds to me like you need another team member... #hinthint
