Eat. Blog. Run.

by This is Carrie on March 8, 2010

My next big running adventure is set for the first weekend in May. The course starts in Napa Valley, winds through Sonoma to Marin, through Sausalito, across the Golden Gate Bridge under a full moon, through San Francisco to Palo Alto and through Silicon Valley to the beach in Santa Cruz.  Luckily, I don’t have to run the 199 miles all by myself.  As part of a 12 person relay team made up of some of the nation’s more awesome women bloggers (still wondering how I got lucky enough to be part of it), I will run 3 of the 36 legs over the two-day race which they describe as “California’s Longest Party.”  Check out the Eat.Run.Blog. team website and follow us 12 women, of varying running experience, as we prepare for the race.

Time to start my hill training.

Small freakin’ world. Pamela Cardwell grew up in my neighborhood and ward in Portland. She is a great person and amazing runner! Please tell her hello for me between running legs….I haven’t talked to her forever! Sounds like a fun race to do!

It is a small world! I was super excited to run with her, but turns out she got herself knocked up and she is out of the race. Bummer.
