Hood to Coast 2006

Images2_4 In a moment of absolute lunacy last year, I threw gDiaper’s hat in the ring to enter the longest relay race in the US…195 miles of sheer running pleasure from Mt Hood to the Coast. 1,000 teams made up of 12,000 runners have lined up each year since 1981. Getting in is nay impossible. So I was shocked to learn we had actually been selected. 
My running mate Seth has pulled together 11 elite runners and me. As sponsor I am hoping to score the three shortest, flatest legs of around 5 miles each. The business has really become an impediment on my training.
We have two vans that need decorating (inflatable toilets on the roof?) and have 3 fabulous volunteers that are putting aside 4 hours or so to man (or woman) the course. We have a team name: gDiapers: Just Flush It.
And lawyers standing by ready to manage being sued by Phil Knight. We have t-shirts and hopefully some groovy little giveaways on course.
So with a month to go, it is a great night to start training. And as I am holed up in a hotel in Seattle, I can actually get our for a gallop.
