The Long Way to Vegas

Last weekend my hubby ran a leg of the notorious Baker to Vegas Challenge Cup Relay. It's a footrace through Death Valley, 120 miles of desert sun, biting wind, midnight chill and final finishes. The annual event breaks the 120 miles into 20 legs, kicking off at 3 p.m. with the speediest teams finishing around 6:30 a.m. the following morning. Sponsored by and for law enforcement agencies, the race draws teams from around the world. My hubby's team came in 19th in their division this year, earning them one of the giant beer mug trophies. Of course, after the awards were handed out, they had "mug shots" taken.

Quite a project here! You know me well enough to know that I take a bit of time to chew on things before I comment - so give me a bit to give you my full appraisal. Thanks for the footnote in history!

The Baker to Vegas folks haven't yet updated their website with 2005 results. I'll post the update here whenever it's available. But personally, you're more than a footnote in my life. ;-)
