12 runners. 200 miles. 30 hours. What on earth was I thinking?!?
If you've never heard of Ragnar that just means you are not a crazy person. I'd never heard of it either until my runner friend said "hey Leslie, you wanna be on our Ragnar team?" Of course I said yes.
The race is relay style. Each person runs 3 different legs of the 200 mile race. Knowing my limitations, I made my commitment dependent on getting to pick my own leg. I am runner #3 - the easiest leg of van 1. I may be easily fooled, but I am not completely stupid.
The gear and the snacks are packed. I'll see you after the finish. Go team Pavement Pirates!
