Redrock Relay

The running world has lots of different races to experience. Darin and I had been asked to be on a relay team, we needed to find a few more people for the team, so we asked Matt to be on our team too. The Redrock Relay is a 186 mile relay that starts in Brian Head and goes to Zion. There are 12 people on a team and everyone runs 12 to 19 miles each. Our team started at 11:30 on Friday and started a 25 hour run from Brian Head to Zion National Park. It was a great time. We all did a great job and had lots of fun. I would have to say one of the best parts was running the race with Darin and Matt. I was able to handoff to Matt each time. That was a fun experience.
Matt hands off to Daryl at the LaVerkin church.
Logan hands off to Darin as he heads off for the longest, hottest part of the run.

We arranged for Earl and Louise to have the three little ones at the exchange between Matt and I. They stayed with us the rest of the race and saw Darin run later and then all of us at the final stretch. It was fun having them with us. Our team was 9th overall and it took us 25 hours and 50 minutes. That's one race we would like to try again.
