12 people running 3 legs each + 181 miles + 25 1/2 hours + Logan to Park City + lack of sleep + quality time in a van = The Ragnar Wasatch Back Relay Race!
My friend Maggie invited me to be part of her all women team made up of some of the members of her running club. The race was a really fun and challenging experience. I am convinced I had the best team ever! They were all super strong runners but most importantly they were very supportive and positive. The results are in, we got 7th place in the women's only division! Way to go Runamok Divas!
Here I am just about to start my first leg. Oh, the fun is just beginning. Don't I look fresh and confident? Yeah, that look didn't last too long.
I really enjoyed the legs I had. I had some beautiful views (even when I had to run at 4:00am)
Here was our secret weapon. . . Coach Bill! He coaches the running club and he knows EVERYTHING there is to know about running and fitness. He volunteered to drive the van, offer council and support, always made sure we were taken care of, and he makes the most amazing recovery drink that I think saved me. Thanks Coach!
