Long standing friends Colette Crabbe, Arlene Delmage, Valerie Jenkins, and Karen Andrus-Hughes participated in the Tualatin Hills 2019 Postal Two-Mile Relay. The objective is to swim 3600 yards (approximately two miles) as a relay. The relays can consist of 2, 3, or 4 swimmers, each swimming 100 yards in the same rotation until 3600 yards is completed. Some do the event for competition, others do it for fitness; all do it for fun.
These ladies chose the 9 x 100 format, like a continuous relay with each member diving off the block nine times and swimming a hard, fast, 100 freestyle. For this group of ladies, it was a great sprint practice set to work on all aspects of racing. It was also exhausting, but fun. In the process of doing this, the foursome broke the current National record event by almost four minutes! Their time of 39:22.81, in the Women 55+ age group, means the team averaged 1:05.76 per hundred, 36 times! Congratulations ladies and keep up the hard work. Most importantly remember to have FUN!
