RIT Coast to Coast
(Photo by Matt Hartman)

In November 2004, some former teammates of mine ran from the Pacific ocean to the Atlantic ocean. The goal was to beat the time it took a similar team to accomplish the feat 25 years earlier. They ran day and night for 2,730 miles for a total of 12 days 3 hours 48 minutes. They ran through the desert, the mountains, the snow and the rain. Coast to Coast is a record of their relay straight from the mouths of the athletes.
