Texas Independence Relay

Last weekend I ran the Texas Independence Relay with a group of coworkers and friends. The relay was 203.67 miles from Gonzales (the site of the first battle with Santa Ana in the war for Texas Independence) to San Jacinto (where Santa Ana was finally defeated). Altogether there were 12 runners on our team; we completed the race is 31 hours and 59 minutes. The pictures from the event tell the best story.

We actually won the Corporate Mixed division (of course, there were only two teams in that division!).

The race was a blast, even more fun than I expected. I hope to do more relays in the future (there is a relay in October from San Antonio to Austin that looks like fun). But it's only two weeks after the Heartland 100 so I don't know if I'll be recovered by then. Have to think about it.
