The Powerthirst Story
They claim to run relays faster than Kenyans. Looks like we’ll see about that as they Reach the Beach next Saturday. The Powerthirsters are a team of 12 runners who run in a variety of relay races throughout the year. It started with a group of friends at work and expanded to include more friends, college buddies, and family members. The running and camaraderie was too fun to keep to themselves. Next Friday September 18 they will be running from Cannon Mountain to Hampton Beach, a total of 209 miles. They take turns running legs of varying distance, hence the relay concept. They run all through the night, in the woods, on the beach, wherever the path may lead. Crazy, I know. I, myself, can only comprehend running if I’m being chased. Perhaps they are being chased because for the first time ever a 13th member will cross the finish line with them. Could it be the person who shot JR, or the person who really sang Millie Vanilli songs, or maybe it’s McDreamy? Please Please be McDreamy. He’s a Mainer, after all. Stay tuned to find out.
