Can you tell who's finished her last Hood to Coast leg?


This picture was taken in the middle of Leg 35…the hardest, most grueling leg of the course at basically 8+ miles of what feels like one solid hill. These three ladies…left to right: Lt. Love, Nightingale, Pvt. Chafe…had completed their missions. And that, my friends, explains the GIGANTIC, on-top-of-the-world smiles :)

Sgt. Style was out shredding her hammies in the hot sun on the never-ending hill probably not smiling, and Commando was chillin' and taking pictures…waiting for the finale :)

This was the scene 24 hours ago.

Now, the event is over, but the love lives on. We all ended up with those same massive smiles :) and as sappy and fake as it sounds, I am in love with my Nuun Platuunmates, and I am so appreciative to Nuun for creating this opportunity and pulling us together for this synergistic, synchronistic serendipitous experience.

Unforgettable.
Experience of a lifetime.
A weekend I will forever hold so close in my heart.

I promise to post a whole lot more later about the race and the legs and the dirt … and the "dirt" ;-)

But suffice it to say that at this very moment we are all glowing (or sparkling) and feeling AMAZING! Sore but amazing :)

Thanks so much for following our journey!

  6. It was very nice to meet you on the course at the Sandy Safeway. And I loved your nun outfit! I'm glad to hear you had a great time. H2C was a wonderful experience for me, and I'm hoping to join my team again next year (that is, unless Nuun picks me for next year's team!)

  9. how fantastic...everyone I know who has run a relay has only glowy things to say. I've never done one...I'm afraid of the whole sleeping-in-a-van thing. I think my whole work week would suffer If I had to recover from 2 days of no sleep ... :(

    maybe your recap will change my mind? :)
