Wasatch Back

A group of 12 of our friends decided to run a relay race called the Wasatch Back.  It is a race starting in Logan Utah and ending in Park City, Utah... about 188 miles. Each team member ran 3 legs of the race, each with varying difficulty.  I luckily had a pretty easy course while Ryan had one of the more difficult ones.   WE ARE CRAZY!  Our team started off at 7:20 AM on Friday and we finished around 1:00 PM on Saturday.  We finished just under 30 hours which was our goal.  The rain held off for most of the race but for our last 2 runners, Cat and Blake it down poured.  When we all crossed the finish line it was raining like crazy! We were just thankful to be done.... on our way out of Heber we were watching more runners with probably about 30 miles left... I was VERY happy to be done at that point!  

Ryan running his hard leg up the mountain.. and happy as a clam! 
The girls in our Van (We had 2 SUV's when we ran they would be resting and vice versa, so we didn't get to see them much)... Jessica, Bethany and Cat
Before we started running... look at how happy we look... Little did we know what was coming up ahead! 

The Mesmerizers!  This was our van... Jessica, Bethany, Ryan, Cat, Blake and Greg!  We had a blast hanging out together and still got along even after 1.5 hours of sleep!
