Ok, now to try to write about Ragnar 2013, so much to say, but I feel like my photos tell most of it. This year I was on a team full of people I knew. I was runner #4 and I had a lot of miles on my plate. My first leg was 7.6 miles, my second leg was 4.8 miles and my last leg was 7.7 miles. My two longer legs were tough, they were long flat and pretty boring, my quad was also hurting and after my second leg I was limping a little bit. But I sucked it up and kept on moving for my team. I ran just over 20 miles in less than 2 days, it was a lot but it was also super fun.
This was my second Ragnar and this time I ran with lots of people I knew, Liz put our team together, her and I had met at Ragnar in 2012 and we are both part of the Kenosha Running Club. I recruited a few of my chi town friends to join the team, I have to say van 1 had a lot of fun. Some of us met at my house the night before to get set for the next day. I live around the halfway point, between the start and finish. I actually live right near the major exchange 24, so my van was able to stop at my house during the race to catch a couple hours of sleep and a shower before doing our third leg of the race.
Enjoy all the pictures!
A great post and an even greater experience! I’m so glad we did it.
