2nd leg - RO Ultramarathon Relay 6 mi 01:09 11:25 pace

I ran this leg at 9:30pm but right before I was to run it, we found out through other teams that an extra mile and a half had been tagged on because the marker was in the wrong place. Luckily, my team found the correct stop and I only had to run 6 miles.

Erica rode the bike next to me on this run because we were expecting it to be 7.5 miles, either way, I was really glad she was there because this was my longest run & we came across some horses grazing on the levee. They were actually really close to top of the levee & in the dark of the night w/ no lights, it was damn intimidating! I told her I was going to walk past them because I didn't want to spook them & have one of them charge me. Cows just don't care, horses on the other hand, WAY DIFFERENT! Anyways, nothing happened & we continued on!

The wind was still pretty killer on this leg of my race, forcing me to run for a half mile then walk for 1 minute. It got to the point where Eric and I couldn't talk to each other because the wind was blowing so hard that we couldn't hear what the other was saying. Still, Erica helped me through that leg & I'm very thankful for that!
