Hello! I'm still here. I hope I haven't lost all my blog readers because I am doing a horrible job with keeping up this blog lately. That is what I get for taking a little break around the holidays. So if you are visiting then you haven't given up on me just yet!
So what am I training for? Right now I'm training to run a Ragnar Relay. A Ragnar is very similar to the Hood to Coast relay I ran this past summer. The run consists of 205 miles split among 12 runners. The run starts in Wickenburg, AZ and ends near Mesa. I guess you can say I love living in a van with strangers for close to 30 hours! The team consists of mostly female bloggers associated with the online fitness community called Sweat Pink or http://fitapproach.com/. We have formed the team Sweat Pink Arizona. You 'll see us decked out in our favorite color. Now if only we could pain the entire van pink! Another fun thing about this race is that my husband
was forced wants to participate as well! He is going to be a our very own personal van driver. It will be interesting to hear his perspective on being stuck in a van for that long with a bunch of women bloggers. Perhaps I'll have him write a blog post about it! He has also agreed to run with several of the ladies who are worried about running alone at night. Ragnar allows you to have a pacer during the night legs as this can be pretty freaky. One of my night legs is on trails so you can bet I'll have him running alongside me. Since he's a runner, I'm sure he will gladly want to get out and run a few legs.
Here is what the course map looks like:
The race starts February 20-21. We'll be tweeting and sharing posts along our journey. If you would like to follow the Sweat Pink Arizona team, we will be using the hastag #SPARagnar. And if you are running this race be sure and say hi!
Have you ever run a Ragnar? Which one? Did you enjoy it?
