Tyro Running The Relay

| May 4, 2009 11:14 am

This weekend I joined team Solar City to run 199 mile (in reality it was probably more than 200 miles, since there was at least one detour) relay called “The Relay” from Calistoga to Santa Cruz. Our team had 11 people in two vans. Each van did six legs then we rotated the vans and we did this so that each van did three sets. Here is our team:

Team Solar City

The weather was rainy, but since you get pretty hot when running, the rain actually felt really good.

Each member of the team was supposed to run 3 legs, but since we were one runner short, we had to run some extra legs. Below are the four legs I ran. To see the +3 Route pages, please signup to +3 Route and add me as a friend.

Leg 7 +3 Route

Distance: 6.9 miles, Pace: 7:09 minute/mile
The Relay Leg 7

Leg 13 +3 Route

This is the extra leg I ran.
Distance: 6 miles, Pace: 7:15 minute/mile
The Relay Leg 13

Leg 19 +3 Route

This leg started at 1:30 in the morning, so I was running with lights and reflective vest.

This is long overdue, but here is, ladies and gentlemen, my first half marathon! It was the San Francisco Half Marathon. My time: 1 hour and 50 minutes. Thanks goes to JC who motivated me to do it and
CA and RB who helped me train for it.

Vacuous Challenges

| January 26, 2009 4:26 pm

I signed up for two events that will challenge my body and my mind. Why? Why not!!!

The first one is the San Francisco Half Marathon the coming Sunday. I ran more than 13.1 miles before, but never as a race. I have been ramping up my running to several times a week and hopefully I will be able to finish it. I am under no pretenses of actually getting a good time, since this is my first running race.

The second one is the Solvang Double Century. This is around 200 miles of gorgeous California countryside. My longest ride before was 180 miles in the Napa, so this will be interesting. It is organized and fully supported, so I don’t have to carry too much stuff. I may want to do some upgrades on my equipment (hint hint…)

Why don’t you try to challenge yourself? Try something you haven’t done before.
