American Odyssey Relay


Nine days.

That's the countdown until team "Bloggin' and Joggin'" will be taking on the American Odyssey Relay. I've mentioned that I'm participating in this race a few times over the past few months and I can't believe it's finally here! Our team of 12 bloggers will be running a 200 mile course from Gettysburg, PA to Washington, DC. We'll each be running three legs of the relay over the course of about 36 hours from May 1-2. I'll be running a total of about 17 miles...that's like a three-quarter marathon, people! Craziness.

I couldn't be more excited to be joining this awesome group of ladies in two sweaty SUVs for two days:


Jessica D (Dear Emmeline)
Jessica H (Pace of Me)
Alexis (Flecks of Lex)


We've all been training hard for the past bunch of months, so it'll be fun to see all of our hard work pay off. These ladies are the absolute best, and it's already been so great to be a part of this group! Having their accountability has been key to my training especially during the awful, terrible winter months. I've been running longer distances and faster than ever before and I attribute that to them :). I've never loved running, but training for something like this race has slowly made me come to like it, and on the really good days, even love it. When I first started running consistently seven years ago, it was hard for me to break a 10 minute mile, and I've broken 8 minute miles several times during my training...on my long runs! I honestly never thought I'd be able to say that.

Want to follow along with our team during the race? #teamblogginjoggin will be your ticket :). We'll all be all over social media May 1 and 2. (Follow me on Instagram or Twitter for updates!)

I also can't forget to mention our amazing sponsors that are helping make this race possible for us! THANK YOU THANK YOU to the following companies:


All of my Bloggin' and Joggin' teammates all be writing recap posts the week after the race, so this won't be the last you'll hear about it. Can't wait for May 1st!
