Another year another Ragnar

Do you see my smile? I love Ragnar...if you don't know what it is check it out.
I know, it's hard to understand how running a relay of 190 miles over 28 hours and getting little to no sleep could be considered "fun." But for some strange reason I can't get enough of it. I daydream about running every Ragnar there is to offer, but for now I run the Northwest passage.
Pictured above is me on my last leg, my last 5.4 miles. My hardest because of the 2 mile hill climb that I have after the first half mile. But for some reason it wasn't until this moment that I didn't feel stressed at all.
My first leg was longer than this one by 2 miles. My second leg was at 3:30am and I had no sleep before then. I had about 2 hours of sleep before this one.
This was 1pm in the afternoon. It was a scorching 75 degrees in the great NW. I loved every bit of it.
It doesn't hurt to be running with ladies you love and admire either.
Thanks for the memories girls! I'll see you next year!
