American Odyssey Relay, 2012 April 28th, 2012
We did the American Odyssey Relay this weekend, our second year in a row as part of Team Wharf (Matt’s 3rd year doing it overall). It was another crazy adventure this time around, consisting of 200 miles from Gettysburg back to DC, with 12 runners, 3 legs each, on very little sleep, with loads of trail mix and gatorade mixed in. Matt put in a total of 17.2 miles at a 8:54 pace and I put in a total of 14.4 miles at a 9:31 pace — our time-keeping was far more diligent this year than in the past. The grand total for our team was 27 hours and 29 minutes of continuous running, at an average pace of 8:19 – wooooohooooooooo! And to top it off, we were awarded the prize for best van decorations, thanks to Gaby, and we each got to take home a commemorative beer glass. GO TEAM WHARF.
