  • Comments: Overall this was really fun. The vibe in our van was perfect. It got a little touchy when we got tired, but I have seen much much worse. The worst part was waiting in the sun for runners, the heat was just the worst. Since I had another race the next day, I ultimately decided to skip the finish line. I knew the heat would be grueling and I had to start working on recovery. I was sad to miss the party, but I think I made the right choice. I would run with this group again, any time! Ragnar #9 is in the books!

  • Comments: This is a pretty well run Ragnar. There are mistakes in the materials here and there, and I wished I'd known about the gravel. Even if it was just the day before, I would have brought different shoes! The major bummer is no normal post-race food at the finish. It's hard for Van 2 because we have to rush so much to get to the finish line, so we AND our last runner, could really use bottles of water, bananas, etc, normal post race items. We were given pizza and beer, all other beverages were already sold out. In the future, if I'm in Van 2, I would pack a special bag of snacks and drinks to bring to the finish line with something for each runner to enjoy. I am super fine with the pizza and beer, but not everyone can tolerate that (certainly not our runner with Celiac!), and even so it's really limited.

  • Comments: I doubt I will do this again, I don't have any desire to repeat it or improve any part of it. The worst part was the sleep deprivation, not the running, and it was brutal. However, I would consider filling in for a team at the last minute next year. The second worst part was the advance planning headache :)
