Best of luck/skill to the Dastrups today

Today Brigham and Christa are running the Ragnar Wasatch Back race. (MAP HERE)  188 miles and change.  It is a relay race so they don't run it all by themselves, but it is a two day continuous race (today/tomorrow) normally done by a team of 12 people and they only have 8 (if I remember correctly) so they each have to run extra legs.  I saw the map of some of the legs...something like 1600 feet altitude gain in 4 miles on one leg. (MAP) Glad it's not me!  It's all up and down on roads between Logan and Heber and back to Park City.  Ugh!  I can sure think of better things to do with friends!  I have all the respect in the world for them for doing this. It doesn't stop me from thinking they are nuts though.

Yes, and with the exertion of such a long race combined with running up a mountain...it might be a good thing to say a prayer for them!
