<p>HI! I am beyond exhausted but Zoe is not ready to let me nap (or shower, ick!) yet, LOL</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I ran the Delaware 100 this weekend. It is a deceivingly VERY difficult course (and very long, like 106-8 miles). I was 6th of 6 finishers (only!) and 2nd female. It was super long and my feet are destroyed like nothing I have ever ever ever seen before on me. I cannot walk right now, hoping to soak them soon. I have the freakiest  aka scariest blister I have ever seen, even very seasoned runners were kinda freaked out by it, LOL. I have a crappy pic if anyone wants a link! <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>In other news, CONGRATS kevin and all the RTB'ers <img alt=":)" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif" title=":)"></p>

<p>Meri, congrats on the 100.  I cannot fathom the mental strength it must take to keep going when you know you have a serious blister and you want more than anything to stop.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>As for the Reach The Beach Relay... It was another fun one, my 3rd RTB.  This is the most fun you will ever have with your clothes on.  And the naked parts were pretty fun too.  I had great team mates:  Novia (we popped her RTB cherry), Jensparks, VogelMD, Runningin NYC, reffinneJ, Annalisa, JillieD, Gingerbread and 70.3 aka AmericanIdiot aka Beth.  I cannot tell you how great it was to be on a team with Vogel and eight beautiful women.  I cannot tell you... I promised!  <img alt=";)" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//wink.gif" title=";)">  I will keep doing RTB until I get so old and slow that nobody will have me.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks mateys, I love you all.  <img alt=":)" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif" title=":)"></p>

<p>Wu- it looks like a great race. It always conflicts with a race I end up doing. bah humbug! one of these years. I saw your FB pics, they were great.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Oh, and it is not blister, it is BLISTERS! i rarely get anything more than one small blister that rarely bothers me beyond a nuisance, but i have blisters everywhere. My whole left HEEL Is a blister, WTF? the ball of my right foot is a blister, and then some blisters elsewhere. Fun times, LOL. I will NOT be taking my socks off at yoga with Zoe today! LOL</p>

Meri, in the future I am seeing you, Chewie, me and three other crazies doing RTB as an ultra team.  It can happen.  BTW:  The RTB peeps just announced a May RTB event:  A 190 mile relay in Mass.</p>

May 20 and 21.  It's eight days before VCM which I do every year.  Not that that would be a problem.  <img alt="<img src=" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif" style="width:1px;height:1px;" title="<img src="> My teammates haven't decided yet if they want to run RTB Mass.  I definitely do want to run it but I don't know if I'll want to do the ultra team next May or not. </p>

<p>Meri, you are amazing as always!  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wav.gif" title="">  I hope your feet (and the rest of you) heal up soon!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am SO happy for EQ.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/hello2.gif" title=""></p>
<p> </p>
<p>My 7th RTB was a Blast!  What an amazing team I got to be on again for my favorite race! I {heart} my teammates! Nothing like trying to sleep, but getting the giggles every time you nod off <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif" title="">.  I'm not sure about the May RTB since it's also the weekend before Pineland Farms.  I really want to do it, but the lack of sleep takes about a week for me to recover from.  Not sure if I should do that just before another big race.  Darn, why couldn't it be 2 weeks before Pineland?</p>
