Hood To Coast 2013. I’m in!

I don’t remember how, when or where I heard about Hood To Coast. I do know that I was intrigued. I heard there was a documentary made about the relay. I had no idea what to expect. I watched it. I was instantly hooked and decided that I HAD to run the relay one day. I mentioned on twitter that I would like to join a team one day. Even contacted a few people about joining or being an alternate on their team. Unfortunately I never heard anything back.

A couple of months ago a friend told me about a team that was looking to add two more people to their Hood To Coast team. I reached out to fellow San Francisco Marathon Ambassador Chris to see if he wanted to join. His response was, “HELL YES!”. I emailed the Captain and just like that we were on the team! Woohoo!

Hood To Coast Legs 10, 22, 34

The team name is Pure Michigan. I haven’t met anyone on the team yet (except for Chris), but talking with the team online they are really cool and fun! And I’m runner 10, which means I’ll be running legs 10, 22, and 34.

I’m REALLY excited. I’m happy that I will be able to finally run this relay! I’ve already started to make a list of items I need to bring. I’m saving that for another post.
