RAGNAR!

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. 

Runner 11:

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!

Enjoy, Enjoy. My two cents from doing a Relay back in May is...remember to STRETCH after each leg (especially b4 hopping back in the van) and roll any area that seems soar and needing attention!
