365/161 North Country Trail Relay Race

Last week JD and I were asked to join a relay race because they had a couple of last minute cancellations.  Having heard of this race before, we jumped at the chance.  It’s a team relay, with 5 people covering 62+ miles through the trails of the Manistee National Forest in a single day.  The group we were part of actually has 2 teams and so you always have someone from the other team to run with, which makes it a lot more fun.
Both JD and I were responsible for running 2 of the legs of the relay, totaling ~11-12 miles per person.  The picture below is JD after he finished his 1st leg of 6+ miles.  He looks a little rough but overall, he fared the better of the two of us.  In spite of the heat, we had a great time and plan to be part of the team again next year.
The Manistee National Forest is a great place to run and this relay race is an awesome way to experience it!  The burger and chocolate chip cookies at the end of the race aren’t bad either Smile
