The Hansen siblings form the mighty "Runs in the Family" team to conquer the Sawtooth Relay, from Stanley to Ketchum, Idaho. Here we are at the race's beginning looking chipper and well rested.
Katie dances away her pre-race jitters.
It soon becomes evident that Katie has nothing to fear as she smokes the svelte athletic looking chap in the yellow vest. "Do you normally run this fast?" he gasps.
Take it away Katie.
Kyle, our other speedy runner, counts road kill in the dozens.
Carolee and Brent our superstar volunteers braved the coldest spot on the race starting at 5:30am.
Here comes Lachelle, the beginning of our soft middle section.
Did I mention how scenic this run was?!
Natalie contemplates fainting from altitude sickness.
It was SO pretty.
Nick counts road kills in the one.
Here is the hill that Katie climbed. 1,400 feet over 4-1/2 miles. Better you than me.
We preferred to drive. Hurry up Katie, it's cold up here.
Kyle thought losing 1,400 feet over 6 miles would be easier. Boy was he wrong.
It might look like Nick was speed walking, but there was nothing speedy about it.
Katie and Kyle were really thrilled to pick up a third leg.
Kyle's reaction to finding out he'd been scouted to run the Wasatch Back the next weekend.
8 hours and 20 something minutes. It is finished!
