Why do I always wake up earlier than I need to. I am 30 minutes early and am totally ready. Well I guess that leaves me time to do a quick post. I am heading out for the Ragnar Relay Northwest Passage. I am excited and nervous because this is unlike anything I have ever done. Everyone on the team is faster than me but few have run a full marathon, not sure if that makes a difference or not...but hey...I will take it. I am running a harder leg than initially planned and I hope it goes well.
Leg 1 6:23 pm 6.8 Miles Hard
Leg 2 2:34 am 4.7 Miles VERY Hard
Leg 3 10:46 am 3.7 Miles Moderate
I have packed and have my outfits and food ready to go. Who knows how much sleep I will get...not much I am sure. The smell of 6 other runners will be one to remember I am sure...and not for the better. Our team name is "Smell Like Team Spirit"...which will for sure be true.
Pray that it all goes well and that I do well. Especially for Leg 2! I have never run in the dark, but I am sure it will be an experience...very calming, scary and I am sure other things! Hoping for the best. I have logged many miles so in that way I feel prepared, but running in a new place can be different and to have no idea how the hills are is a little scary. I have hills in all of the runs, but Leg 2 has the most...should be FUN!
