Not every runner wants to take on a marathon. Relay races are a nice alternative  -- particularly when you're part of a team running nonstop from Miami to Key West.

That's what Orlando Sentinel staff writer Wesley Alden and nine others are doing in a long-distance event called the Ragnar Relay. Here's what she says about her progress on the paper's Fitness Center blog:

"So far we’ve run past many dead animals, had homeless people help us with directions, been cheered on by other teams and received many strange looks from bystanders who can’t figure out what the heck we are doing. I don’t even know what we are doing most the time."

Check out the blog to learn what it takes to be on a team that runs day and night.
