best kinds of relays

When we first signed up for the Palmetto200, I felt the anticipation of competition. It wasn’t until today that I felt it again, upon hearing that our frenemies (best way to describe them based on the driving competition) on another team would be starting 30 minutes ahead of us, and were wondering when we would finish.

So the best kinds of relays (I’ve decided) are when you know another team. Bonus points is there is some underlying beef between you. For instance, apparently Jarod (on my Tuna team) and Casey (on the Big Katunas) do not like each other, on principle, and were smack-talking on the sidelines.

They stole Dave.

‘Nuf said.

They are going down. Oh, sweetie, the smack talk has just begun!
(There is a sassy black woman inside of me. High five, bro. Cards Against Humanity flashback)

Okay, no really, it will be fun. And we will play back and forth. And I think there is enough varied speed in our runners that we will probably ping pong a good bit.

But, it does feel satisfying to know their start time is before ours (because they’re a little slower than us).

Again, I repeat: They stole Dave

[Dave is Dan’s best friend, who got confused and ended up on the wrong team… We found great replacements, and I am truly happy with our van’s end result, but they stole Dave! hahaha]

Let the games… BEGIN!

  1. Hey girl! Put your money where your mouth is! We didn’t “steal” Dave. He just came over to a better team. We’ll wave when we fly by you. Cheers!!!

    • Girly, I plan to have fun with all of it. I think we’ll be close enough to enjoy it. And I am not gonna start in the drama… 😉 Besides, whoever gets to the finish first gets beer first… That’s motivation for both the teams 🙂

      • I hear u! Just had to mess with you! Hell..you know I’m slow. I’m excited about another chance for a relay! See u guys down there!
