Relay for Life Update

So in case anyone was wondering how the relay went, it was interesting to say the least. The relay was in front of Immigration Canyon and the weather was AWFUL! I thought the wind was going to blow people away. My scheduled time to run/walk was from 12-1am. The weather was so bad that the officials ordered everyone into their tents until it calmed down. The course was wet, muddy, and cold. Heidi (our team captain), her fiance Ryan, and I were the only ones there from 12-3am when I left. We got out and did a few laps around when we could. It was a good thing Ryan brought his tent that could have survived the Apocalypse! We stayed relatively warm and comfortable in our little fortress of solitude. Later that morning, the officials announced that the relay had raised a little over $41,000!! Thanks to all of you who supported me with this wonderful cause!
