It feels like forever since six other runners and I ran around Seneca Lake. In reality, it's been just over two weeks, which is long enough to forget all of the unpleasant parts (35 degrees! rain! mud!) and remember only the amazing parts (most everything else!).
This was my second year of organizing a team o'BAMRs to run 77.7 miles around this lake in the middle of New York State. Four of last year's team made it to the starting line again. Our three newbies flung themselves into the challenge of an entire day spent in a van and/or running. It's all of the best parts of a Ragnar -- silliness and costumes, mostly -- but without having to sleep in a field. With Seneca 7, you wake up in a bed and go to sleep in a bed, usually with a shower in between.
Like last year's adventure, it's a story better told with pictures:
Which would you rather run? A day-long relay or a weekend-long relay? Or no relay at all?
