This past weekend Chris and I had the opportunity to be a part of a 12 man relay team. We raced from Logan to Park City covering 180 miles in 30 hours. This year just under 600 teams participated in the relay. PricewaterhouseCoopers sponsored us and the team consisted of Chris' colleagues and myself.
The actual race began a handful of years ago when a PWC employee was taking an entrepreneur class at BYU. He designed the race as part of a class project and after implementing it successfully, quit PWC and began doing this instead. There are several races throughout the nation and is becoming more and more popular.
Each one of us had three legs ranging from 3.1 to 8.5 miles each and differing in difficulty. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. I didn't get more than a few hours of sleep in a 48 hour period but didn't feel it until I came home and crashed. We all ran the entire thing except for a couple of us that walked short snippets but really hardly anything. We all pushed ourselves to the max. What made it challenging was the high altitude, the heat, and the hills.
It was one of those experiences that we will be talking about for a long time and the funnest and hardest race I've participated in thus far.
