Of Myths and Frogs
Today I depart for the Blue Ridge Relay, a 208 mile relay race run along the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia and North Carolina. I’m part of the team, THE MYTHICAL FROG BOIL, a name inexplicable apart from my previous post on the subject of frogs, boiling, and running.
If you’ve never run a long-distance relay race in the mountains, you should. It’s like runapollooza.
We’ll start Friday morning in Virginia and Finish roughly 25-26 hours later in Asheville, North Carolina, never stopping. Along the way we’ll enjoy lovely Smokey Mountain vistas, sleep little, avoid dogs (and presumably bears), probably get lost on the unpaved mountain roads of North Carolina, and consume nothing but simple carbohydrates and Gatorade.
The race report should write itself…
