DWD pictures

Based on Kim's response, I must not have described the race very well. It is a 62-mile trail 5-person relay through Hell, Michigan and the surrounding area. Each person has 3 legs which vary in distance from 3-6 miles. At the end of the day, each person goes 11-13 miles. The terrain is at times hilly, muddy, mucky, wet, sandy, poison-ivy ridden, but at all times, very good times! My husband did the 50k ultra distance. Yes, he ran 31 of those crazy miles all at one time!

Here are some pictures to give you the flavor:

Well, the description of your race legs and distances sounded fascinating... and the photos have not let me down! It's been an interesting couple of months, reading about people's races and the variety of events out there.

And that king-sized crown on your head (with the devil) is fantastic. Did you get to keep it? I think that's something you should be able to wear on a regular basis. I mean, you are an Iron[wo]man. You should be able to do whatever you want!

All the best for your busy work season. Don't let it suck you in too much!

Yes, the hats belong to our team. We'll bust them out again next year for sure!
