Esther and I did a 12 person 216.6 mile relay race that wound from Diamond Lake to Bend. Esther took and extra leg totalling 23 miles over 4 legs. It took our team of Central Point area church members 30.5 hrs. We had 4 highschoolers on the team. Our team captain, John Lotts was the oldest. We slept for a couple of hours in a makeshift camp at the side of the road while the other van's runners did their nightime legs.
We got rained on, endured rough surfaces, high heat, and strong headwinds, got misdirected 1.2 miles the wrong way, bitten by misquitos, sunburnt and blistere.
Esther's hips hurt and I had gastric distress my 2nd leg. But we had a lot of fun with some great people.
