Top of Zion 2012

My employer (TCN) put together a 12 man team to run the Top of Zion Relay last weekend. It is a two day 200 mile relay race across some of the most unbelievable scenery in southern Utah. Each runner in the 12 man team ran 3 legs, for a total of approximately 16 miles. It was an amazing experience and a total blast to compete with the other TCN Team members! Physically I was totally destroyed for days afterwards. My first leg was a 10K @ approximately 9000 feet elevation. I ran it in 42 minutes (7 minute miles!). My second leg was an 8 miler in the middle of the night, I posted a time of an hour 18 minutes (9:45 minute miles). My final leg was a short 2 mile run, which I ran in 15 minutes (7:30 minute miles). I averaged approximately 8:05 minutes per mile across my three legs. I think that is pretty awesome for an old fart like me!
