    When I read on Shelby’s blog comments that you were doing HTC this year, I kept thinking I would post a comment on your blog about it but never did. It’s been about 5 years since I have done HTC but your post sounds like it is still the same exhilerating experience.

    When I first became a runner about 10yrs ago, the running club I joined always had teams doing HTC so I thought why not try one? Whooeeee…until you have done relay race, it’s really hard to fully understand what it takes to finish. Fortunately, the team we had was invited back year after year so I was able to do HTC 5 times. Heh, heh…never got any easier either!! Each year presented new challenges and experiences. Nowadays I hear its just a challenge to get your team into HTC. Hope you want to do it again if you get the chance…..

      Thank you for commenting! I would love to chat with you about your experiences sometime! That’s sooo true that it is the most challenging thing–and something you can’t really describe. It must be experienced.
