Last year was such a success!!  I am so pumped to run 200 miles all over again.  12 women came to together and accomplished something that seemed unattainable.  We ran up mountains, through pouring rain, and in the dark, with a spirit like none other!!

 It was the most exciting, scary, and empowering thing I've done. Bri ran up the highest mountains EVER!! She inspired me with her dedication to keep pushing.  She deserved that Capital Punishment medal with every step she took.  She was amazing!!

Tina aka "Mama T" is a must have on any team.  She whipped that van like nobody's business.  She forced us to cheer on our teammates.  Here dedication to keep our spirits high did the trick! We drove along side our teammates screaming in their ear.  Having that kind of supports makes you want to keep going for your team!!

Or how about when Mel's final leg of the race was cancelled due to flooding (running thru a hurricane is no joke!) Mel was so dedicated she ran with Susan!!  

We even had cheerleaders along the way Paulette, Squeak and Burgudie on the ground and Luana whipping van 2!!

And did anyone find Remi's glove? lol She kept us laughing with this missing glove!  So many memories of laughter, frustration, fatigue, hunger, lack of sleep;, excitement and pure fun!

Your Captain,
