Des Moines IMT Marathon Relay | 2014

A week ago Sunday, I ran my first Marathon Relay.  Five of us each took a leg, completing a marathon on 4 hours and 2 minutes {9:24 pace}  
Des Moines IMT Marathon Relay Race | October 19, 2014
Myles started by running the first 4 miles {his first organized run since high school!}, Alicia ran the next 6 hilly miles {with a pace of under 7:30, mind you!}, then Katie ran 5 miles {into the wind & still had a 30 second faster pace than she thought!}, next was Ashley {running her first 5 mile long run ever!}, then I ran 6 miles and my teammates joined in for the last .2 as a group.  

The morning started off cold, but my noon {when I ran} I was totally overdressed.  So I guess I would call it perfect weather for an October Marathon in Iowa. :)  

We didn't get a photo with our support team :( But they were seriously the BEST!  We all were at the hand offs and then the rest of the racing team went to the next transition to get ready, but Brad & Adam also ran ahead and made sure to catch each runner once {or twice!} in the middle of each run for added support & to get photos! :)  

And call us crazy, but a few of us are thinking about signing up for our first full marathon next year!
