Van 2, I just wanted to let you know that I have put in some speed work on the track since I was so slow last in D.C. I hit the hills and ran in the rain too, just in case we encounter more poor weather conditions.
Dear van 2, don’t be alarmed but I stumbled upon this photo of our fearless leader Ian and his educational background. Hopefully, running up Mt. Pocono won’t be as difficult for him.

This is what awaits us, team… 44 miles in the Poconos to end the race!
8:00 AM is the official “go live” for the PA crew!
1.5 miles straight in 18:15.
3.04 total this morning in 39:48.
My time for one mile is 12:25. I can’t run much more than that right now before walking a stretch. My plan is to work on endurance and longer distances rather than faster time. Got a long way to go in 6 weeks. At this rate my time for my 5.9 first leg will be in the 90 minute range. ACK!
So I talked to Carrie (the race directory for Ragnar PA). She said the legs won’t officially be posted for another month or so on the Ragnar site, but she did send me the working Excel sheet they have so far. Here’s what it looks like in terms of total distance for each runner:
