Astronaut Steve Swanson participates in Wild West Relay

NASA astronaut Steve Swanson competed in the Wild West Relay twice before with his team. But this year, his participation was much different - he is currently stationed on the International Space Station. That didn't stop this Steamboat Springs native. He ran as part of the Ultra 6x6 team 200 Miles, 20 Orbits, & 90 Shillings. He ran his six legs on a treadmill on the Space Station while coordinating with his team on the ground. Here is a video posted on YouTube by NASA of him running one of his legs.

Steve also sent this photo of a Wild West Relay hat from the Space Station.

Volunteers enjoy RLT Relays too

Received this email today from a volunteer who staffed an exchange during the Green Mountain Relay:

Dear Paul,

I served as a volunteer for the Green Mountain Relay this past weekend (Neighborhood Connections ) and wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my participation in the event.  I was impressed with the level of organization provided and so enjoyed meeting the race participants!   I wanted to share my thoughts about the experience and to thank you for your effort in producing such a wonderful event. 

My blog post for 6/24/12 is called "Running". 

I hope that you enjoy the post.

I wish to thank you too, on behalf of Neighborhood Connections! 

Very best regards,
