A rainly Lake to Lake Relay in the books. It rained for every step of my legs. 

Leg 2- Ran the new and improved leg from the Gunlock turnoff and through Kayenta.  I just took it easy knowing that I had many miles in front of me.  My fresh legs probably made me run faster than I should have, but I thought I was being conservative. My Dad was knowhere to be found when I got to the exhange at the end of my run.  Then I found him chilling in the bed of the truck 


6.15 miles/7:54 mile pace


Leg 4- One of my favorite legs of the entire Relay. I just let the downhills take me all the way from Upper Tawa Pond to Cottonwood Cove Park. 


5.16 miles/7:47 mile pace


Leg 6- This is where I ran into problems. My old chronic IT injury circled back on me.  I slowed down a ton.  Had some support from family cheering me on. 


3.83 miles/9:09 mile pace


Leg 8- Running....jogging up the dam road with some bad legs.  I felt like I could barely bend my knees. The constant rain was nice but it created some unwanted chaffing. 


3.41 miles/10:09 mile pace


Leg 10- This leg is always tough because you see the finish line as you run around the entire reservoir.  My dad and I made a plan after leg 8.  If I was hurting too bad he would bail me out about half way through the leg.  Well I got about 2.94 miles and my quads were cramping up.  My dad was right there when I needed him most.  He took over and slowly finished the dang race. Obviously I knew I wasn't in good shape for this race but I am glad I spent some adventure time with my dad. I also backed off enough not too do any serious damage (hopefully).
