I never really recovered from diaphragm spasms and probably a little overheating that first leg but ran a little better my second leg (farthest but flattest). By my final leg, I poked up the 600-foot hill but felt my best. Guess I was just happy to finish.
My teammates faired much better, averaging 6:47 per mile over 199 miles. And unlike last year, we had only one slowdown not related to our running performance, when Jill, our first runner, got stopped by a train for about 8 minutes. (Hurray! No one got food poisoning this year!)
So the #GRRLS team placed second out of all women's teams this year in 22 hours 29 minutes and 47 seconds!
