The Great Midwest Relay – Hour 7 and 8 – Juggling and Running without balls
I’m up next. Unfortunately, I’ve lost a couple of my joggling bags!! I now have to run with a completely new set and they’re not even Gballz.
Oh well. I’ll do the best I can. It’s getting pretty dark (9:00). I’m wearing a green light and will be running on trails. Hopefully, I wont get hit by any deer. A runner in one of the last legs on a different team got bumped by one. That reminds me of Newport.
We are thinking about all of you running in the relay. We wish all of you good luck. Hi John. Perry, thanks for the updates on the race-of course John probably said-she has no clue what I’m talking about-I can picture him. Good Luck! The Kellys
I think you meant this reminded you of Charleston, not Newport. That is where the great deer incident of 2006 happened.
Also, at this point van 1 had all completed their first legs. We were enjoying a nice dinner at the same irish pub that van 2 visited earlier. We then went to purchase some bug spray and headed to the next transfer area in the hopes of catching some sleep. We were not too successful though – too many other vans and loud people. I was hoping that I would be able to sleep sometime during this race!
Yeah, Charleston. I remember the story well.
Deer and clothing is South Carolina
We weren’t able to sleep either. It’s tough at these relay races.
