I pulled my hamstring during a turkey bowl and got sick after Thanksgiving. Thought my hamstring was well off for today but I was wrong.

The snow was nuts! I was really worried about hamstring but I didn't have problems with it until near the end of Leg 6. My Dad and I were in out of leading the whole race until Leg 7. After Leg 7 my Dad and I were about done. With a combination of my hamstring problem and a new IT band problem, my Dads enery depletion, and the crazy snow we struggled to finish. I couldn't finish leg 10 because of my leg so after my Dad got energized he switched me half way through leg 10. 

Leg 2: Tried to run as conservative as a I could on a short leg. 2.36 miles: 16:21/6:56 mile

Leg 4: Hard not to go fast on this leg, with all the downhill. I destroyed my body on the downhill. 7.32 miles: 47:26/6:29 mile

Leg 6: Ran through my territory on the trail by the River by the Skim boarding place.My hamstring and IT band started hurting really really bad.  4.98 miles: 35:48/7:11 mile

Leg 8: I just chugged along with a bad leg. 4.56 miles: 43:23/9:31 mile

Leg 10(half of): Tried to bail my Dad out of running more than 5 legs but my leg was too bad. 2.53 miles: 25:27/10:03
