This year I was fortunate to get a hood to coast team.  They only allow 1000 teams from around the world to join and they refused 600 teams this year.  My team “Run Me Tender” consisted of 12 members and 3 volunteers.  Each of us run three legs over the course of 27 hours based on our team time.  Van 1 consisted of myself, Eric, Curt, Sheri, Rich, and Vicki.  Van 2 was Mike, Gretchen, Ryan, Laura (both from Colorado), Sarah and Jason.
