51 year-old male seeking HTC team
« on: July 19, 2017, 04:31:09 pm »
I'm not fast (10 min pace), but I'm happy to grind out miles and will take whatever leg is needed.  I haven't run HTC, but I've done CLR and a couple of Ragnar events.  I'm in it for the fun, so if you're a competitive team, I'm not your guy.  If you need more than just one, I've got buddies in their 40s and I could probably persuade one or two of them for the right price.

Have you found a team? I may be able to hook you up.

I haven't found a team yet. I'm also someone happy to drive a van and/or navigate while others snooze.

Do you actually have a van or vehicle the team can use? this could be a profitable experience if you do! :) You sound perfect for my team either way we are non competitive mixed masters team.

Unfortunately I don't have a suitable vehicle. I don't know what you may already have lined up, but in my experience a Ford Excursion or Suburban is a more comfortable and nimble option than the usual 12-passenger van.  In any case, I'm good at being non-competitive and master's age, so we may have found a good fit.

Actually we have quality vehicles solidified Im just keeping a feeler out for one thats closer because ill be needing to get one of our team vehicles from tacoma as it is. Either way Van two is solid it is a large six person truck and we actually put a bed in the back and it has has a nice canopy. I was in it last year and it was a really nice set up. You'd be in that vehicle with me and and four other team mates. :) this is my fifth hood to coast so i know what you mean with your vehicle suggestions. At any rate we also have  a place to stay at the beach. Are you in a position to pay the 252 dollars needed to cover the registration fee and the gas/vehicle rental and cleaning/place to stay at the end fees? If so my boyfriend is also on the team he's also 51, we are mostly 40 and fifty somethings. We are kinda wild our team name is sexy strangers and random shenanigans. If that all checks out, you can handle some mild inappropriateness and it doesn't make you at all uncomfortable that our van one is 90 percent lesbian then lets do this!

Only mildly inappropriate? I'll try to adapt.  ;) I was voted "sexiest legs" in high school, so I fit with the team name. As for a 6-person van being 90 percent lesbian, I would guess that means someone is still exploring, but it doesn't bother me one way or another.  I'm happy to cover the $252. As for logistics going forward, it's probably best if we move to something less public. My email address is rgrant@linfield.edu.

Our super masters team just lost a male runner from injury. Would love to have you join our team, Van 2 leg 12. Very organized team.
