Brew to Brew

Sunday April 5th we ran in the Brew to Brew. It is a 44 mile relay race from The Boulevard Brewing Company in Kansas City, MO to Freestate Brewery in Lawrence, KS. Proceeds from the brew to brew benefited The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. There are 10 legs to the 44 mile race.
It was a great day for a run! Not really, see below for the forecast for the day..
It was cold, rainy and snowy! We managed to have a great time despite the bad weather. Our team was supposed to be 9 people, but we ended up only having 6 race day. It ended up working out really well. 4 team members ran 2 legs and 2 of us ran 1 leg(I only ran one, but it was the one with the worst weather!)Our Team (The Wizards of Koz)! From left to right: Joe, Me, Lauren, Steve, Emily and Drew.

At the end of the race there is a party at Liberty Hall in Lawrence with chicken and crayfish gumbo, bread, fruit, and beer. The food was good and I am sure the beer is too, but after such a long day of cold weather and running it was hard to drink.
Here are just a few pics from the race:

























I can't wait to do it again next year. Hopefully the weather will be nicer!
