Well, Dan and I once again decided to another crazy 200 mile relay race. Ragnar Relay Northwest Passage 2013! Sometimes I wonder why we do this to ourselves. Oh ya, thats right......because it is so FANTASTICALLY FUN!!!!! Nothing better than hanging out in a van with 6 smelly runners (x2) for 34 hours who are delirious from running and haven't slept. NOW THAT IS WHAT I LIKE CALLING "A GOOD TIME!"
Most of our team was the same as last year, with a few new people added in. We had team members from Colorado and Utah....and those of us who live right down the road. So many fun memories from the past weekend, I don't even know where to begin. From me literally peeing in my pants to my friends in Van 2 getting stuck across the border in Canada by accident, we all had so much fun! My favorite part about this year is the fact that we turned our run into a fundraiser. We raised over $2,000 to support children with cancer! Our team placed 2nd overall! This really hit home for me. My best friend had cancer all though middle school. It was so hard to watch her go through it all: the chemo, being sick, missing school functions....I could go on and on.
Dan also ran into a old family friend at the finish line, what a bonus!!!!
I LOVE MY RAGNAR TEAM!
Here a few fun highlights:
***Dan and I keep sayin' we aren't going to do this next year......but who knows....we always have so much fun....maybe we will!
