    Fun race! I love your t-shirts. And those veggie fajitas look so tasty and ‘healthy’ too! Great job, you girls kicked butt – what ever your “official” time was!

    That all looks so fun! I want to do a marathon relay now 😛
    And all that food looks wonderful too; I love restaurants where you get popcorn instead of bread; it doesn’t fill you up as much 🙂
    Have a good sleep!

    What a fun race! I’m glad you and your teammates had a good time. Especially since the race started late and and it was SO hot yesterday.
    I thought of you all (and the 50k and 50 miler racers, especially) yesterday when I was sweating to death at my daughter’s soccer game. I was a wilted, sweatu mess and I was just standing; I couldn’t imagine how tough it was for all of the runners.
    Enjoy the rest of your time in DC!

    Congrats on another awesome finish — I bet it was so much more fun because of the relay aspect. I would have loved to do it, except for the snake part. I refuse to run on trails where I might see a snake, lol!

    I ran the Ragnar relay a couple of months ago. It was a 200 mile relay and you had teams of 11-12. It was really fun and went for about 36hours. You should find one like that in your area, you would love it.

    That sounds like such a fun race to do. I think the relay is the perfect choice for a fun event.

    The two delicious meals to top it off look great too.

    Hey Meghann,

    I noticed you wear tighter fitting (compression?) shorts a lot on your runs.
    I’ve been having a big problem with chafing between the very upper of my thighs anytime I run anything over 3 miles. (I hope this doesn’t mean my thighs are too chubby? I’m 5’6″ and 130-135 so that shouldn’t be the case i hope!!! lol) I was wondering if you think compression shorts would help with this problem? Could you recommend me any good brands of shorts? I’ve been wearing nike tempo shorts and they are just not doing the trick.

    Thanks,
    Love your blog,
    Alyssa

    Congrats lady! I’m glad you all had a fun time completing the Northface Endurance Challenge.

    So sad I wasn’t able to come up and hang out today- next time for sure!! xoxo

    Hey Meghann!
    It was so much fun running with everyone! My friend (who’s also named Julia) is a big fan of your blog, and was originally going to run the race as part of the big group. I think she even emailed you for advice about running on trails (and was super excited to hear back from a real, live blog celebrity)! She wasn’t able to make it, after all, though, and I wound up joining the group — and I’m so glad I did! What a great experience. And I’ve had so much fun checking out everyone’s blogs afterwards. Looking forward to reading more!

    Great to meet you,
    Julia –> Team Awesome!

    What a fanastic race! You ladies all did so well! And I LOVE the matching t-shirts!! Such a great idea!

    popcorn in a restaurant!? that sounds like the most genius idea ever. If I don’t get a job waitressing soon, I’m going right over to that place and demanding a job

    I love the idea of a relay run; you girls look great in your outfits and with a healthy post-run glow!

    That race looks fun! How come there were only 11 people participating? That seems like a really small turnout.

    Just catching up on all your DC recaps – looks like you guys had a great time at the race! The aid station I was at was only visited by the 50K/50-mile runners – sad day! Love the shirts your team had, too cute 🙂

    That seems like such a fun race. And to do it with friends seems so enjoyable. The fun of a marathon without all the training.
