The unofficial results are in! (I think) we won the corporate division for the second year in a row! We all joined Craig, our anchor runner, in a ceremonial jog across the sandy finish line. Eddie, Blake and I jumped in the frigid waters after vacillating a bit in the shallows, only to watch an older lady jump right in with no hesitation. After the dip, we joined the others to relax a bit in the beer garden while a rock band played on a beach stage.
Despite a train crossing that held us up for 10 minutes in Portland and a few other minor logistical hiccups, we finished with a time very close to last year's. The official time and results will be available on the Hood to Coast site likely in the next few days.
Thank you Eddie for the many hours of hard work organizing. And thank you to Kerry and Megan for fearlessly piloting the ships and putting up with 12 smelly runners.
