"Post-Blue Ridge Relay Hangover Syndrome" is real. Symptoms include acute muscle soreness, general sluggishness, dehydration, an inability to stop smelling certain odors, strained vocal cords, and in extreme cases - queasiness. One way to ensure queasiness, even days later, is a 10-second margin of defeat.
The thrill of the back-and-forth race was intense. The pain of BRR victory slipping through our fingers cut deep. We plan to document this battle in depth in the coming days / weeks. In the meantime, check out the recap on the Citizen-Times.
Major props to our rivals and this year’s BRR champions, the Charlotte Running Club. They showed grit throughout and fought back to take the hard-earned win. We are grateful to these guys for keeping the rivalry alive and well. Ok, enough nice talk. Take care of our championship belt, boys. We plan to take it back to the mountains in 137 days time at the Winter Classic 8k.
