Running – Whiskeytown Relay ’09

Here’s a quick post to celebrate a fun relay run around Whiskeytown Lake west of Redding this past Sunday, 20 September.

My team, Team IPA, consisting of me, Keith Slaughter, John Maretti and Bryan Bear ran the 19.9 miles around Whiskeytown Lake in 2 hr 35 min 47 sec to finish 21st out of 108 teams. Not bad for mostly old guys. (All of us are in our 50s except Bryan a youngster in his 40s.) Average pace per mile was 7:51.

Numerous other teams from Chico were there including the overall winning men’s and women’s teams of the Chico Track Club.

Tori Parks of the SWEAT running club always puts on a great event that people come back for year after year. Participation this year soared from 83 teams last year to 108 in 2009.

    Too bad you didn’t have this lone star runner on your team. You would have instantly catapulted your team to 108th place! You guys are obviously having way too much fun without me…
