Lake to Lakers!

On March 3rd our Beckstrand Boys did the Lake to Lake Relay. It's a 50 mile, 5 person team, relay from Gunlock Reservoir to Sand Hollow Reservoir. Our boys team had Grandpa, Joel, John, Brian and James. The girls had Kristal, Debra, Kellie and 2 of their friends. The race is broken up into 10 different legs about 5 miles long, each person gets 2 and runs about 10 miles total.

Last year they did it and just called themselves the Beckstrand Boys. This year they got creative and had Jared use the Lakers Basketball team logo and change it to say, "Lake to Lakers." So that is officially their team name for now on. They got running shirts made with their nicknames and numbers on the back. I wish I would have gotten a picture of that. Next year. Anyway, they all are such hard core fans that the rest of their uniform consisted of stuff they already had in their closets.

Here is Joel on his second leg that takes him passed Staheli Farm high fiving our 4 youngest kids.

The night before Jared went over to Brian's and wrote Lake 2 Lakers on the windows of his SUV. It looked so good.

Here is one of the exchange spots. This is at the end of Joel's where he has to tag Brian and then Brian can start his 2nd leg.

And here they all are at the finish line. Good Job everyone!
