Twenty four hours after the finish of the Seneca 7 relay race I am still flying on high. The Seneca 7 is a 77.7 mile relay race the circles Seneca Lake in New York State’s Finger Lakes region.
Beginning in Geneva New York teams consisting of 7 runners with each runner running 3 legs with various distances compete in this ever growing competition. On this day there were initially 225 teams in total. Our team Liar, Liar Feet on Fire competed in the days event and we were blessed with weather that was absolutely perfect. Plenty of sunshine and 66 degree temperatures.
We began the day in the last wave at 9:30AM and quickly clicked off the miles. By 1:30PM our team had made it halfway around the lake. We arrived back to Geneva crossing the finish line at 6:17PM taking 1st place male team and 3rd place overall.
We all ran hard, put what we had on the line but most importantly we had fun. The Seneca 7 is a wonderful experience and I’m glad I had the opportunity to be a part of it once again.
See you in 2016!
