ragnar relay {what is it?}

ragnar-relay

basically, in their own words “ragnar is an overnight running relay race that makes testing your limits a team sport. a team is made up of either 6 or 12 individuals; each individual running 3 (but sometimes 6) legs. the legs of the race vary in difficulty and distance, from 3-8 miles, allowing elite and novice runners to run together. over 2 days and 1 night, teams run across 200 miles of the country’s most scenic terrain. pair that with crazy costumes, inside jokes, a great finish line party and unforgettable stories. some call it a slumber party without sleep, pillows or deodorant. we call it ragnar.”

so there you have it… ragnar relay in a nutshell. now you are ready to hear our “unforgettable story.”

I am volunteering tonight at 9pm (until 1:30am) at the Ragnar on Cape Cod. I have 12 friends from church that are on a team ("Road Hazards"). It should be fun!

I am so excited that I get to run a Ragnar this summer! I have been wanting to run one for years. I think that it will be an epic weekend. Plus I get to run with Nuun so that will make it even more fun. :-)
