Tomorrow is THE day! The day that I run in my first team ultra marathon relay. Am I excited? Yes… Am I scared…. YES!
I have already packed my things and am ready to head to Baton Rouge tomorrow.
I have 5 outfits in their own ziploc bags so when I change I can seal them up = less stink. You know I will be wearing many different Running Skirts!
The longest I have run since my injury is ten miles, and I will be running just under 20 (total) miles. This is what my legs will look like:
leg 3: 4.094
leg 9: 3.435
leg 15: 4.885
leg 21: 3.983
leg 27: 3.175
There are 6 of us girls and a total of 30 legs. At night, we are going to bike a bike next to each other so no one is alone in the dark on the levee. We have a lot of reflective vests and lights as safety precautions as well.
Our wave starts Saturday morning at 8:00 AM, and we are expected to finish around 9:00 or 10:00 am Sunday morning. Don’t worry, we are going to document the whole thing. Between the six of us, we will have plenty of pictures and video.
Not to mention, if you would like to follow along with our shenanigans (I am not responsible for what gets tweeted at 2 AM!) You can follow along with the two hash tags we will all be using:
#GirlsOnTheGeaux (our team name)
#ro12 (Rouge Orleans 2012)
Be sure to stay up to date on all the fun of the weekend! I would also like to give a huge HUGE shout out to all of our amazing sponsors. We will be tweeting them up as well as taking photos and videos all about them so stay tuned afterwards.
These giant banners may or may not be going on our van. Along with other silly things…we aren’t trying to stand out or anything…You will just have to follow along on Twitter and Facebook to see how we are decorating our van.
I also want to mention that any money our awesome sponsors gave us that we don’t use will go directly to Girls on the Run of Baton Rouge!
I know my Girls on the Geaux teammates would love it if you followed them on Twitter, too:
See ya in Baton Rouge!
QOTD: If you were doing a relay how would you decorate your van?
