Getting Excited About Ragnar . . . .

. . . . but still mostly terrified I invested in a team I won't be able to fill.

Let me know if you're interested in running Ragnar Northwest Passage this summer!


I haven't posted here too much about the headache of trying to put together a Ragnar team. After I ran last summer with a friend's team I came home and told everyone I knew about how awesome it was . . . and so many of my friends said "I want to do that with you next summer!" Of course, in my mind I thought, "hmmm, if I just get these folks to sign up, I will have a team!" In early January I sent out an email to all of the runners I knew and guess what happened? I had TWO people commit to doing it. I cried, and got frustrated, and then I was under pressure because the race was so close to selling out. My teammates, who now numbered 4, plus me, all said we should just register and figure it out later. Most importantly my husband, aka the family bread winner, said I should use our his hard-earned money to register a team. So I did.

We don't have a name yet, and I am crossing my fingers that the wonderful runner I met today wants to join us, because that will bring our team to six runners.

With six left to find (cause no way in H-E-double hockey sticks and I am going to be able to do an ultra!).

I am super stressed about it, but also am incredibly excited. Ragnar was the most fun I have ever had running, and I CAN NOT WAIT to do it again!

Anyways, if you are reading this and have the ability to run something from 15-24 miles total in a relay race in July, you're in!
