Also at this exchange point, I learned that exchange 7 was, and I quote, "Not a parking lot! Do you understand?" This was told to me and about 100 other vans by our friendly Moab County Sheriff. He was being kind of a jerk. We were all pulled off the side of the road, and most of us were in our vehicles getting ready to pull out, when I guess he needed to show his authority. A little farther down the road, he actually had his lights on and asked someone for their drivers license.
Leg 9 ...Lisa....This was a really pretty part of the canyon. I would have liked this leg.
Leg 10...JoAnna.....This was an up then downhill for JoAnna. She is so strong. Even when she is hurting, she just toughs it out!

After Leg 11
I was getting killed right and left. It was pretty windy at some points. I had NO shade. I actually ran past a squished animal in the road, that had the words "Road Kill" with an arrow pointing to it. "This is me." I was thinking. I never felt like I hit a "wall." Just felt slow, dried out, and my feet were super hot. I did have my one and only true kill. I passed thong distance runner. She never passed me again. Mile 7- 12:05; Mile 8- 11:53.
Leg 12...Mindy.....This was our last section of the course. A little over 5 miles. I told my team that we had to make sure that we kept her cool, as the temps were rising. Luckily Mindy's route had alot of shade on it. Every time we asked her if she needed water her only concern was "Where are the MILF's?" This was another team, Mother's in love with fitness, that Mindy and her sister decided to gang up on. She wanted to beat the MILF's.
|We earned our STRIPES!|
Rose, JoAnna, Roz, Mindy, Lisa, Lori
|This was the sign for my LAST mile.|
|This was my posse on Leg 11|
