24 hour relay

While John was up north at Lake Stevens, I stayed behind and did a local 24 hour running relay on a work team.  It was actually a lot of fun.  They had fireworks, a big bonfire, music all night long, roller derby, a huge slip-and-slide, etc.  The laps were 4 miles long and we had an 8 member team.  I still ended up running 7 legs for a total of 28 miles.  The goal was to keep them all under 30 minutes and I succeeded with that so it felt like a pretty good workout.  I suffered more with the sleep deprivation than I did with the actual running.    However, that took a little more out of me than I expected.  Recovery has been slow.   Maybe I'm just getting old.
