Wasatch back

181 miles from Logan to Park City.

12 runners.

3 legs each.

27 hours 30 minutes.


Here's a quick summary:

3:30 p.m., 5.6 miles past Hyrum dam and into Paradise.
The heat was excruciating. I almost didn't survive. Seriously.


11:30 p.m., 4.9 miles through Morgan Valley
This was a blast running in the cool, dark night.


8:30 a.m., 5.1 miles through Kamas and Francis. I was tired. Very, very tired.


Scott(Socks) was a champ.

He ran 6.9 miles @5:30, 5.7 miles@ 2 a.m., 3.6 miles@ 11.

He was awesome. really, really awesome.


Macy was disappointed to hear we didn't win... but we did take 178th out of 560! That's good, right?


The Dirty Dozen

We are so done.
