My 1st leg of the American Odyssey Relay.

American Odyssey Relay Run and Adventure.

My first leg was a 4.62 mile run. I took the hand off from Matt who just kicked ass on a very hilly portion of the course. To be honest up until we hit the C&O Canal the whole course was hilly to a certain extent. I got to run under a covered bridge. Right after the bridge was a ridiculous hill. But I checked my map and my turn was right after the bridge before the hill. I was so happy for that. My teammates pulled up next to me in the van and gave me a nice cold water. Then I saw a St. Bernard behind a fence that I had the van take pictures of for me. Then the van asked if I needed anything and since I didn't I told them to go ahead to the next transition. I did have a hill around mile 2 and I ran the hill and then walked for a quick drink. Rest of the run was pretty uneventful and pretty flat, to down hill. I go to transition and handed off to Taryn for a leg that I didn't know at the time but soon found out while driving to the next transition was filled with crazy hills.
