Ragnar Trail Appalachians WV Recap, Part 2

Yesterday I left off my Ragnar Trail Appalachians WV recap just as our team captain and first runner Gayle came running into the exchange chute ready to hand off our team bib to me for my first leg.  Due to the extremely muddy conditions, Ragnar had moved everyone’s start times up one hour.  With the […]

Ragnar Trail Appalachians WV Recap, Part 1

There are bucket list items to check off; and then there are bucket list items to check off.  On Friday and Saturday I checked off the latter… Running a Ragnar Relay was on my “to do” list for years, but it wasn’t until this past fall that I checked that item off my list when […]

Cruisers Rockin’ The Relay – Ragnar DC Recap Part 1

I really don’t know where to start…  How do you sum up such an incredibly amazing weekend in one short blog post?  You don’t… Way back in early April when I registered our team for Ragnar DC, I picked Runner 8 because it seemed like the hardest position overall.  Runner 8 seemed to have a […]

Leading Up To Ragnar (September 8 – 14)

As I approach my targeted fall race, the Hokie Half Marathon, I’m hoping to peak at just the right time.  Having two other big races a month and two months prior has its advantages and disadvantages.  On the plus side, I’m able to test my training to see where I am in the way of […]

Twelve Cruisers Became Ragnarians Today

It’s over…  I’m a Ragnarian, and I’m feeling the blues like it’s the day after Christmas.  What now?  There’s no planning, no organizing, no packing; just basking in the afterglow of a job well done by my amazing team of friends! This evening’s post isn’t a recap.  It’s just to let you know that we […]

DC Ragnar Is Getting Real

If you remember back in early April, I announced that I was putting together a DC Ragnar Relay team.  Last week, after several social media blitzes, I filled the last spot on team Cruisers Rockin’ The Relay.  Lame name, I know…   My friend Chuck agreed to help me out as co-captain if I formed […]

What Has 24 Legs And Can Run 199 Miles…

Question:  What is a Ragnar Relay? Answer:  It’s a team of twelve runners that are cooped up in two vans for approximately two days getting stinkier by the hour… Question:  What will you do for two days? Answer:  Run, eat, drive, wait; run, eat, drive, wait; run, eat, drive, wait (notice the lack of sleep) […]
