2012 Great Lakes Relay

It was an epic weekend running across Michigan. 277+ miles, 10 runners, 3 days.

Me on my first leg. I'm happy early on in the shade. It got brutal running in the sun in 90' weather.

A group shot while I was out on my run. Bart is rocking his Hawaiian shirt.

Day 1 finishes at the Au Sable River, perfect for cooling off.

Day 2 still looking good.

There weren't porta-potties for this race. You had to use the woods for all bathroom stops. Certain areas were private property, so they were marked with signs.

Day 3, the last leg. Known as the Glory leg. At least 3 miles of this leg was run on the beach & it was hot out. Kevin rocked it though.

A team shot.
