    Oh this brings back such great memories! I did the Wild West Relay out here in Colorado (from Ft. Collins to Steamboat Springs) with 11 friends and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
    Have you watched the documentary film about the Hood to Coast Relay? That one’s on my ‘bucket list,’ too!
    Congrats to you!

    Great recap for those of us with the attention span of a goldfish – I dig it! I’ll try to catch the full race report when it’s posted. Slow Motion the the Ocean had a blast keeping pace with you ladies on this epic adventure.
