Not perfect, but better than it looked a couple days ago!
In about 64 hours from now, Larry will start us off with a very strong pace of 18:30 per mile! Looking forward to it!
Drinks with Ragnar teammates ’til midnight on Friday, followed by a pre-hurricane 10 mile run on Saturday.
In the Ragnar world, we call that “Cross Training”…
We get to sleep in an hour this year. Our official start time for Washington DC is 7:00 AM. Van 1 has to be there by 6:00 for our safety meeting.
Hi Ragnar Runners – B1G PAPA is in the shop getting dents repaired and a new battery so that she will be ready to be marked up and roll through MD to our final destination, DC. I took some down time over the last month and dropped my running to around 25 miles per week. I also put on an extra 10 to 15 lbs.!!! But I am back mentally and I am in full swing of training. I started a strength training regimen today, which I will continue to help build my core, very much needed. I plan to start running two times a day at least once a week to be ready for the relay, but I know that won’t be too difficult, given my sleep habits have gone to the birds.
I am sorry that I missed the kick off meeting. I am hopeful that we can get together for a short run and a happy hour before the event. Maybe just the happy hour! Anyway, so excited to see everyone and I am looking forward to a fun race!
