On Sunday I participated in the First Annual Pewaukee Relay Around the Lake. The 16.5-mile course was divided into 5K segments for relay teams. I ran the last leg for my team, the Sole Sisters. This was my first relay ever, and I have to say I truly enjoyed the comraderie and team spirit of the event.
There were also several individual runners doing the whole 16.5 miles solo. (It’s possible a few of them finished before the Sole Sisters.) The organizers timed this event very well for people training for fall marathons. I had run 14 miles the previous day, but will definitely keep this in mind for a training run next year. I love any opportunity to run sans hydration belt!
The event’s purpose was to raise money for the Pewaukee High Scool Cross-Country Program. I highly recommend putting it on your race calendar for next year!
Way to go Sole Sisters!
