Make Room in Van 1...

... For Rosie's cousin Rob, who recently came in "third" in the Kielder Marathon.

Way to go, Rob! We will be contacting you with info about your legs in the 2012 Reach the Beach.

(Thanks to Rodrigo for spotting our newest Club member in the news.)

Hampton Beach, a great place to meet the rest of your "relay family" members

The end of a relay is like the end of a love story you so enjoy...or the end of your favorite childhood fairy tale... sad, sweet, but also... so ready for the next chapter...

Is anybody here finding it hard to explain to family and friends that we had a life changing adventure with people we don't even know, but yet we now keep them in the inner most part of our heart's "memory lane"? I sure am!

I must admit, I am honored to have been part of the Rosie Ruiz Fan Club relay team. I am so proud of my "relay family"
Don't we all look so happy after two days of sleepless nights and hard racing?
Here is our team members posing by the years they have been running as the RRFC relay team!

First, the veterans, then the virgins!
Here is our beloved team captain Erica and her cheerleader and the BEST co-captain ever, Chris :)...and where is the doggie?

and what will we do without the handsome speedy dudes in the team!!!

And the lovely couple celebrating their second year as team members!!!
and the newly inducted family members!!!
One must admit that the one sad part of being a member of a relay team is that you meet your team members from Vans 1 and 2 just briefly, then by destiny you are separated from your relay family until the end of the relay, except for a few short minutes here and there.

Like any family reunion, our team meeting up is always fun!
As a new team member I learned that I must take advantage of the precious "meeting" moments to have fun with the "other van"
Hope to see you all next time around!
