Texas Independence Relay 2010

Last weekend, a bunch of friends and I crammed into a couple vans and participated in the Texas Independence Relay. The 203.20 relay race started in Gonzales, Texas…

We ran throughout the beautiful Texas countryside… town to town…

I only managed to get two legs in before my IT band said no more. I’m pretty sure this injury was a result of the Austin marathon and over-training… I plan to switch to the bicycle for the next few weeks while I recover. Thankfully, my awesome team managed to pick up the rest of my legs. We eventually made it to the Houston downtown area…

In the end, we managed to get to the San Jacinto Monument in 24:59:10!

I believe we placed in the top 5, but I’m not sure. I’ll know when the final results are posted from the race. On the whole, I highly recommend anyone who wants to do a relay race to do the TIR, there’s no better way to explore the Texas country side.

  • Sorry about the IT band. That sucks. Still, it was fun, wasnt it? i was on a team and it looks like we finished right about the same time.

  • Yes, I look forward to the TIR every year. Last year I smoked it averaging about 6:10 miles. This year I cratered after my second leg. I plan on avenging myself when the Capitol to Alamo relay race rolls around.

    Look at you guys and your matching shirts! We weren't that prepared 🙂
