The Nevernudes Strike Back

We interrupt this month of thankfulness for breaking news:

The Nevernudes are back from last year with an shiny new race video.
(unfamiliar with Nevernudes? You, my friend, need to watch 

This was my fifth relay that I've ran, and it did not disappoint. 
12 people. 
188 miles of Las Vegas desert. 
24 hours.
18th place out of 500 teams.
Run.
Sleep. 
Eat. 
Repeat.

24 hours jam packed with:
-best of friends
-a giant smelly van
-cutoffs (surprisingly really comfortable to run in)
-hot hot heat (quite literal heat, not the band)
-freezing cold night
-port-a-potties as far as the eye can see
-my husband dancing on a van, with strangers stopping to film him. really.
-sleeping in weird places (including, but not limited to: the van seat, the van floor, the front seat of the van w/feet out window, front seat of van w/feet on dash, a very bumpy empty lot next to a gas station, a park under a tree with a thousand people walking by watching you drool)
-oh yeah.....and running. lots of it.

Thanks to Ryan for the awesome video.


Can't wait for the next one!

I lived in Vegas for 5 years. Even in the fall, it is pretty toasty out at Red Rock. I have to give you credit. Awesome video!!
