So, I got a text on Sunday night from my aunt asking me if I wanted to "run in a relay called Ragnar" and I could "read about it online." Of course I knew what Ragnar was! I was going to run it, but we couldn't get enough girls for a team. I was little relieved, but mostly bummed to not get to run this relay. But, it looks like I'm going to be able to run it after all!
I've only run about 5 times since my marathon so I don't think I'm very prepared, though the marathon was only 6 weeks before Ragnar, so maybe it's better that I didn't run much so my muscles could recover. I'll just tell myself to "keep going" like I did in the marathon. It worked for that! But, really, I am a little scared!
Here's what I'm up against:
I'm runner 11.
Running legs 11, 23, and 35.
Distances 8.5 miles, 6.4 miles, 3.5 miles for a total of 18.4 miles.
We are meeting at 4:00 am on Friday morning to drive up. We start at 7:30 am on Friday and between 12 girls, we will run until sometime on Saturday afternoon/evening, depending on how fast we all run. The course goes from Prescott to Tempe Marketplace.
Completing this race will mean I competed in a sprint triathlon, half marathon, marathon, and this relay within 5 months. After that, it's time for a break. Then, hopefully we can get pregnant and have a little baby girl!
