Guess what we did last Friday
3 legs each.
*Don’t worry, the camera isn’t blurry, it poured rain the last day of the race
Your team gets to come up with a cool name for team spirit and camaraderie. We’d like to thank Antoine Dodson for inspiring our team name: Run and Tell That.
Yes, there were shirts, tanks with red shirts around our head, lingo and dressing like Antoine, and the song was played way too many times with sing-a-longs.
You live in a van/truck with 5 other teammates and run for about 4 hours and then try to get some sleep while the other 6 take their turn.
Here’s all the team minus our fearless captain Catherine (who was out running a leg), waiting for her at the first van exchange.
We’re much more grateful for leg room! (Sleep too, can’t you tell by this picture?)
But we absolutely love all the friends we shared a truck with, look how cool and fit these kids are!
Jacob was our fastest runner by far. He’s always been self conscious about his “chicken legs.” I think the entire race all runners stared at that stride and those legs in great envy. May all our future children get those legs and be able to run fast and hard without much training like their Dad.
Camille definitely got hooked up with some of the prettiest scenery in the entire race causing her to fall in love with Oregon- farms, river, wine vineyards– oh my!
If ever there was wonder if Jacob loves Camille (there’s not but IF there was) this sacrifice definitely proved it!
But the good news is, we finished! Everyone! With only a couple injuries!
And now we say “Run and tell that- HOMEBOY” much MUCH more often!
