Today I ran the Sol Invictus Marathon Relay. You have 4 people on your team. The first person runs 3.5 miles. The next runs 2.0, the next 1.0, and the last runner runs 3.5 and that continues until everyone on the team has run three times. According to my Runkeeper the course measured a little bit short to be considered a full marathon, but it was close. My team consisted of Jeff Wimmer, whose wife was one of the race organizers, Bryan Bartishell, who works with Jeff, Marilyn Freeman, who was on at least one of my Ragnar teams, and me.
I ran the 1 mile loop first. I was a little winded at first, but felt pretty good. Then I ran my 3.5 mile loop. It was starting to get hot. I ran slow and I could feel I was starting to cramp. Luckily I was running slow so it didn't bother. But my last leg was the 2 mile loop and now it was even hotter, I was more tired, and I definitely felt it. But I made it. Marilyn was our last runner and we all crossed the finish line together. It was fun. I'm still way out of shape.
