Ragnar NWP: Everything is Awesome

Well folks, Ragnar Northwest Passage 2014 is in the books!

One word to describe it all? AWESOME.

Our team name, Everything is Awesome, was perfect. 

We finished 351/506 total teams, finishing in 32:03:21. I have to admit, I like the numbers because I like numbers, but our team was in no way, shape, or form "racing" at Ragnar. It's cool to see how long it took us, that's about it. 32+ hours of awesome. Maybe we should have run slower and prolonged the fun? 

I absolutely loved being the captain of this team. Being the captain didn't really mean much during the race, I didn't have to "put on my captain hat" at any point, mostly it meant I did a huge amount of work leading up to the race.

And yes, it was a lot of work, but as I told my teammate, it just extended the Ragnar excitement for a few months. I knew exactly how all of the time spent orchestrating everything would pay off, and that was really fun for me.

If this teams wants to re-form for Ragnar NWP 2015 I would absolutely love to be the captain again!

So stay tuned, there is more, lots more!, to come, as soon as I can wrap my head around how to compress all of my thoughts on the weekend in to a blog post or two.

My only "spoiler alert" is that my foot never, not once, gave me any issues. In fact, my entire body held up shockingly well!
