An Epic Race for ADRoadtrip

Posted: August 24th, 2009 | Author: Driver X | Filed under: General Info | No Comments »

Run, drive, sleep.  Run, drive, sleep.  Run, drive, sleep for 189 miles.  That was the plan for the Sole Sista’s relay team.  What actually happened was, run, laugh, drive, laugh, toot, laugh (repeated 3x).  And the formula worked for the team of girls from Austin and Salt Lake City…because we came in FIRST PLACE in our category!!  Wooooohoooooo.

Our adventures began in Providence, UT where we stayed a sweet abode the night before the race.  We dined at the ever carbolicious Olive Garden, then we headed home to prepare for the next morning - packing food and decorating the vans.  After all that we were spent and ready for bed.  That lasted 10 minutes.  We shoulda known things wouldn’t stay calm with girls doubled up in beds and people creeping around the house until 3:00 am giggling.

Wake-up sure came early and we hustled over to the starting line, where we were apparently the ‘headliners!’  For this group of exhibitionists, it was the perfect way to start the morning.  We were pumped and waiting for the other teams to show up…but quickly realized there would only be three teams starting with us.  Instead of an anonymous pair of legs running in a sea of people, we were now head to head with our competition and all eyes would be on the THREE of us.  We pulled ahead early and continued to maintain the lead through the entire race!  The route started in Logan, UT and ended in Jackson, WY.  Can you say beeeyootiful?  Evening the nite runs were magnifico.

Through the heat of day and dark critters of the night,  fueled by coolers full of food and 3 hours of sleep…the Sole Sistas kept on keepin’ on and had a blast with this race.  We may have been stanky at the end, but we wouldn’t have traded this experience for anything.  We met some fabulous people - shout out to the Big Dawgs and the Epic team - and had a grandiose time.  ADRoadtrip met the finishers with giveaways from sponsors , EarPollution, iRagz, iFrogz, and Tattoo Armor.  An extra special end to an already exceptional finish.

If you would have asked me a few months ago when we got our training schedule from the “Relayologists” at Epic how this was going to end, I would have replied with faked enthusiasm…gReaT?!  And now…I think I can say we are hooked on these relays and look forward to the next one.  Congrats to the Sole Sistas (Lisa, Dana, Tara, Carrie, Angie, Laura, Heidi, Steph, Noelle, Mari, Tash, and Melissa) for their victory and free entry into a future Epic Relay!

Dude, the trip is goanna be long.  And there’s got to be lots of good food, sights and stops along the way.  Now that the route is set, we’ve got to fill in the rest of the trip details.  The AD Roadtrip team is looking for suggestions, recommendations, warnings and freebies along the route.  So please comment on the following categories:

  • Where to stay:  We have kids and relatively high standards, no hourly rate reco’s por favor.
  • Where to eat:  Preference is to eat on the cheap and quantity is the choice over quality.  Anything a la Diners Drive-Ins and Dives would be fab.
  • What to see:  See it from the car, see it from afar, see it up close, see it see it reco’s.
  • What to avoid:  Dont’s for everything, lodging, food, sights and weirdos.

Here’s the route again:  Austin to Albuquerque to Salt Lake City to Park City to Salt Lake City to St George to Las Vegas to Pasadena to Irvine to San Diego to Los Angeles to San Francisco and reverse it back to Austin. Whew, I’m spent and hungry.
