For those of you who do not know, the Hood to Coast Relay (http://www.hoodtocoast.com) is the World's largest relay race. It is a 198 mile relay race starting at Mt. Hood Oregon and finishing at Seaside Oregon. There are 1000 teams in the race with each team made up of 12 runners/team (each runner running 3 legs in order). Last year, as a mixed team (coed 6 males/6 females) we finished 32nd overall. Of the 31 teams that finished ahead of us, 20 were all male teams including elite sponsored teams.
This year's race is on Friday and Saturday, August 22-23, 2003. Other than the time parameters set out above, there is one other major requirement I must mention. Whoever joins our team must be cool. No a**holes!!! We are all working stiffs, not full-time runners. Fun is first and foremost and running is second. We try to do both things well.
