|Run ALL the Cape Cod towns!|
I have joined a team called the Maine Loon Squad and have been placed on the first, 13th, and 25th legs of the 36-leg course (roughly 16.6 miles total). This group intends to run this for fun and I'm perfectly okay with that knowing what I really need to be focusing on. Nonetheless, I am excited to try something new in the running world that doesn't involve zombies or live electrical wires. It's good old-fashioned team running though what is a very scenic region of Massachusetts.
What will prove to be a bit of a challenge is how I will fare running in very odd hours on a very odd sleep schedule. Most know how I fared after trying to run the Vermont Marathon on the same weekend as outdoor camping. At least I don't have to push hard and run for 3-4 hours straight but it will be interesting to see how my legs handle the 13th and 25th legs, especially if I run one of those at night. And I'm likely sleeping in and driving a big van through these areas. It's going to be very different.
Three weeks from now I'll already be heading down and getting ready to represent the loons on the first leg. I hope to have a lot of reporting to do before, during, and after my experience.
