Summer Event #1
Jo and I will be headed to Utah towards the end of June to participate in the Ragnar Relay. This is a Hood to Coast type event where you are a member of a 12 person team and run a total of about 180 miles. We are on a mixed masters (all over 40) team and it should be a lot of fun. The race starts in Logan, UT and finishes in Park City, UT. The route takes us around, over, and through the Wasatch Mountains in Utah. I am hoping that the views are great. It is also a historical route. The Donner Party was a group of California-bound American emigrants caught up in the "westering fever" of the 1840s. After becoming snowbound in the Sierra Nevada in the winter of 1846–1847, some of them resorted to cannibalism. We are following part of their route through the mountains.

Our team name is RTYP which stands for Run 'Till You Puke. I hope we don't.
