Wow. Cannot stop thinking about the last 56 or so hours. Was it really that long? Time moves at a different pace during a Ragnar Relay.

I was up at 8:30 this morning feeling fine except whenever I have to walk up or down a step or even the smallest of inclines. Holy crap, my quads are toast. But I guess if I’m still standing, I didn’t run hard enough. Lots of training to do for next year.

I just checked out the blog, and I agree with all the props and shout-outs. This was an amazing experience with an amazing group of people, and that is an understatement. In these last two days, I have been motivated and inspired by all of you. I am a runner now. I know what I can do. I’m signing up for a Chilly Cheeks 7-mile trail run in January. Gotta have something on the books to keep me in my sneakers and working on my time.

Thank you everyone for the encouragement and for giving me a place on this team. I was kind of lame on the support part, and hogged the back seat for sleeping whenever possible, which was often. Thank you, Van 2, for indulging me as a newbie dealing with unfamiliar exhaustion and mush-brain.

This experience will stick with me for a lifetime 🙂 It was an honor and an incredible pleasure to share this with all of you! You’re were right, Zook. Never felt anything like this before!
