I’m not sure if I should be super excited or super nervous!?
I signed up for the Palmetto70 about 6 months ago and of course have done nothing more than my regular workouts and runs to prepare. The race is a 70 mile relay race that is part of the Palmetto200 that begins in Columbia Friday. It’s a type of race that I have never done so I’ll be able to check it off my running bucket list.
Our team is made up of 6 amazing women and between us we will run 70 miles. We each have 2 legs that range from 2.95 miles to 8.66 miles. None of us have ever done a race like this before so we’re all freaking out a tad bit! The first leg takes off at 4:40AM on Saturday and yours truly will be finishing the race and crossing the finish line for the team around 3:50PM. If you’re out and about on Saturday traveling from Monks Corner, around 17, on the bridge and near Patriots Point look for our lime green FIA shirts and honk your horn!
I will definitely be taking a ton of pictures and will share our experience with y’all next week (as long as I make it through it, ha ha)!
I’m hoping for a great experience, great running legs and an amazing experience for my group! We’re not in it to win any medals, but to do it for ourselves and prove that we can!
I’ve got my running shoes packed and ready to go!
See you at the finish line!
