St Louis Track Club Marathon Relay


This morning Team "Quarter Pounders" ver. 2.0 ran the St Louis Track Club Marathon Relay. This year we the team was comprised of newcomers Jackie Wolz and Detlef Ritter as well as returning members Megan Tooley and of course myself. We decided to try to get as many teams from work as we could but with the short notice and no good way to contact all of the runners at work we only fielded 2. Next year I would like to see at least 4 teams. We finished in 3:34:xx which I think was great since it was 14 degrees outside with a wind chill in the single digits. We all ran 2 legs of 3.25+ miles for a total of 6.5+ miles each. This years team was definitely slower than last years but that's ok since last year Megan found a couple of ringers who were very fast. This year I think everyone was well matched and it worked out great and was a lot of fun. Next year I will get the word out sooner and maybe set up a party area to make it more fun for everyone.
