I am running in my fourth Relay, each one better than the last! I will be running Leg 12 this year, which culminates in a windy, hilly final leg along Highway 1 into Davenport.
This year is a bit different for many reasons. For one, I am on a very restricted food regimen as I try to diagnose a food allergy. No dairy, gluten, eggs, or soy, and most beans and nuts are also out! Will I be able to eat anything during the Relay? I don't know!
This is also the first time since I left CardioDx that I am doing the Relay, though the CardioDx team has been gracious enough to invite me back. So instead of sharing a van with people I see every day, I'll be sharing with people who I see occasionally, and some of whom I've never met before!
The Relay is a great physical challenge, but the cause is totally worth it. Organs R Us is a fantastic organization that does excellent and much needed work. So please donate generously!
