Wasatch Back?

The Ragnar Wasatch Back Relay was this past weekend… what a blast! My company sponsored 4 teams to run in the Wasatch Back Relay which is a 12-person, 181 mile relay race from Logan to Park City, UT. Our teams all started at 8:20 am on Friday morning and finished within 90 minutes within each other.

The race itself was a blast! The scenery was awesome, the format of the relay was great, and it was a great team building activity so-to-speak. Getting 3.5 hours of sleep the night before was the only factor that slowed me down. The lack of sleep hit me hard around dinner time around 9:00pm on Friday night. Luckily, we got 3 hours of solid sleep from 11pm to 2am, when the team called in and said it was about time for us to start running again. I ran 2 legs back to back around 3:00am, which allowed me to proudly say I put in 10.5 miles in my Pajamas (seriously!) through farmlands from Oakley, to Kamas, to Francis. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky… it was awesome!

Our teams finished around noon the next day, which meant at 2:00pm, I was finally able to get some sleep! 🙂

Next weekend is the Logan Peak Trail Run. I just got an e-mail from the RD saying that there is still a good amount of snow on the course, but it is melting fast. I ran a total of 21 miles during the relay, all on the road, and I am a little sore and my right foot has been reaggrevated again. I have been taking some advil, icing, and I didn’t run today, but I will probably run 5 miles tomorrow nad test it out. I think I have a good chance at doing well to Logan Peak as I have been training on some great terrain in the last month. Only time will tell!
