it was chilly, but the sun was out this morning for the cross country relays! after all the rain and grey skies of the last couple of days, it was great running weather - and resulted in a great turnout. the temperature was more season appropriate than the mini-heat wave we had for the 2013 edition.
for the second year in a row the two relays went off at the same time (in contrast to holding the 3 person xc relays on saturday and the couples relay on sunday - with the club's holiday party on saturday night). while i prefer the old couples relay course - this variation is also fun.
as for the relay, emmy and i teamed up again and we took 3rd place overall this year! that was fun - but the pancake breakfast was pretty good too. i actually skipped the pancakes and opted for just bacon and beer - a new breakfast of champions :O
here are the relay results from taconic road runners.
