Coast to Hood to Coast

My darling husband is off on an adventure. He and eight other men have decided to up the ante at a local long-distance relay race. The Hood to Coast race is celebrating its 30th birthday this year, so these fine men thought, ‘hey – let’s double it!’

I know. I’ve upped his life insurance.

Here are the facts:

* 9 men

* 400 miles to run

* 2 vans

* 8,000 bottles of water

* 0 hours of sleep over two days

* they are all over 50 years old Uh, yeah…got this wrong. There’s one guy who’s 39, and one other who may be in his late 40’s. I messed up. Still – these are NOT professional athletes just out of college.

As of this morning, they should have already reached Timberline Lodge on Mt. Hood, ready for the ‘real’ race to start. Hah! Unlike everyone else, their race is half over!

Go Ultralords, go!!
