Beach to Bay Marathon

We spent this weekend in Corpus Christi, TX. My family and i ran a relay marathon. Most of us are not really runners so our goal was to beat the last place from last A relay marathon uses six runners each running one leg of the race. I ran the second leg which was 4.69 miles.

This is a picture of My cousin Liz and her husband Gabe. They went to school down in Corpus Christi and have been running the race for like 10 years. Liz recently had a baby so she decided that it would be a great year for a family run...... oh ya, Gabe's team WON!!!

So, we all hoped that it would be nice weather. Last year it was 99 degrees but this year it rained and rained and rained during the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th legs. although I preferred it to the heat, it was out of control! Considering our inexperience and the weather, we did ok. We finished 95th of 300 womens' teams. And we won best costume!

This is the scene you get for most of the run....except the 2nd leg (my leg).

It was a lot of fun and we are planning our trip for next year...any takers?
Special thanks to Neil who drove us around all over town and waited in the parking lot for two hours!
