This year I joined a team to run the 200.3 mile Spokane (WA) to Sandpoint (ID) relay race which happened August 16-17. We were the Flying Hands and Feet team, and everyone on the team is fluent in American Sign Language. I was so nervous and excited to be a part of this experience!
This is Ryan saying good-bye to me on Thursday morning. "Run, Mommy, Run!"
Guthrie and I sat in the very back of the van.

The 5 in Van #2!
Running my first leg - 4.17 miles at about 4:30 in the afternoon. It was HOT.

The next morning. After getting around an hour of sleep on the floor of a high-school gym at exchange point #3, we got ready for the last round of legs. Guthrie started us off again.
He had STUNNING views on his run.
