Nacho Fastest Runners do Ragnar

Posted by Not Your Average Athlete on October 29, 2015No Comments

I had a blast running my 3rd Ragnar Tennessee this weekend!

As per usual….mainly because I always apparently have to have some form of stress in my life….we got our first runner to the start with only one minute to spare.  I ran over to the announcer, signed us in, and she was off!
We then realized we had sent our runner out without a headlamp so we rushed to the van and found her on the course…..headlamp restored!

We met up with van two and had to get a group selfie

Had some awesome handoffs

And had some unusual scenery

I got my first ever kill….it only took three Ragnars

This is still the best sign ever!

When Van 1 finished we celebrated with food and lots of coffee!

Hung around and waited on van 2

Then we partied!

And another Ragnar is in the books!

Mile 1: This is AWESOME!  I am so glad my hip got better in time to run this race

Mile 2: I am a total rockstar! I LOVE running!

Mile 3: Uh Oh….I hope I didn’t go out too fast

Mile 4: I’m getting kind of tired…maybe I could slow down a little

Mile 5: Definitely went out to fast

Mile 6: My feet hurt

Mile 7: Keep going….constant forward motion

Mile 8:  Gummy bears at mile 10…you can do this

Mile 9: Who put weight watchers in charge of the fuel station? I WANT CANDY!

Mile 10:  GUMMY BEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mile 11: This sucks

Mile 12: Ok, maybe I really needed more than 3 weeks to train

Mile 13: Why is that freakin’ .1 soooooooo far?!?!

Finish Line:  Wahoo! Ragnar in 2 weeks!
