Gorgeous Portland Pub Relay

Recently I got invited to run in a relay I'd been hoping to get in to, it was a new event, free, and quite popular, so it filled up quickly.  Lucky for me someone dropped out at the last minute and I got to take their spot!  Yay!

Andie was there, she got pushed by two of my friends, and sang the National Anthem before the race started too! We are working on a virtual race to raise money for a new racing chair for her soon.  Courtney & Heather, we represent half of our 12 bridges relay team, that's later this month.
