Blue Ridge Relay

Over the past two days a lot of people have coming into the store to get headlamps, reflective vests, and little blinky LED lights.  They are all preparing for the Blue Ridge Relay (procrastinators).  It's a 208 mile relay race that begins on Friday.  One guy came in to purchase some things and then began to tell us that he had a member drop out at the last minute.  He was asking all of us if we knew anyone who could fill in.  You have no idea how close I was to saying "Me! Me! I wanna do it!"  But we have a little family vacay planned for this weekend and I think my husband would be pissed if, at the last minute, I decided to partake in a running event that didn't involve the rest of the family in any way.  BUT, it has gotten me thinking and I really want to try to put together a team for next years race.  When Angie decides to rejoin the 21st century I'll see what she and other bitches think.  It may just be another wild idea that will pass in a few days.  We'll see.


  1. That does sound like fun! Take it easy this weekend. I'm headed to the OBX myself to run a little half ironman and get some time on the beach without the whole kiddo clan.
