Rob completes Ultramarathon Relay

From January 6 – 8th, Rob participated in the Florida Ragnar Relay, a 199-mile relay race from Miami to Key West. Rob, along with 10 teammates from Team in Training, ran “relay-style” non-stop on a scenic course from Miami to the beach in Key West. Each member of the team ran three legs, with each leg ranging from 3 to 11 miles long. Rob’s legs included a nighttime run through the Everglades and a run across the famous “7 Mile Bridge” outside of Marathon Key. Team “Purple Reign”, slightly sleep-deprived but happy, finished the race in just over 32 hours.
