For a third year in a row we will be conquering another 200 mile race.

This year our team will be running from Cumberland Maryland to Washington DC on September 22-23. I'm excited to say that this year we will be hosting two teams. That's 24 runners!!

Last year was an awesome year! We were a 9 women team for a race that needed 12 runners. Talk about a challenge!!

It seemed like an impossible challenge considering we were down 4 people. And we still had to run 200 miles in order to get our medals. This required our team to run more miles per person than planned. YIKES!!

Let me tell you, there is nothing that can stop our team!! Seriously!!

Hazel thought I was crazy for giving her so many miles, but I knew she could. And yes she did!!

I think Diana said it best, "Tameka I love you but I hate you!" She knew that her run was difficult but she made it to the end! Diana conquered her challenge and the team was so proud of her.

I must say this experience was even better than the first year we ran this race. Typically I only train to run 6 miles at the most. I had to run 8 miles on my first run, 9 miles on my second run and 7 miles on my third run. OMG!!! I was freaking out!

I promise you if you are interested in running with us and you don't think you can do it... DO IT ANYWAY!!!

The mind is an amazing thing. The fact that I was able to conquer something I wasn't even sure I could do....turned out to be the most rewarding, awesome experience.

Please help us raise money for another awesome adventure!!
