Ragnar Wasatch Back went off without a hitch. We had a great time with our friends. Our team name was "Duh Winning" in honor of the sleezeball Charlie Sheen.
Ragnar races consist of two vans with 6 people in each one. Together you run 191 miles. With Wasatch Back you start in Logan, UT and finish in Park City UT. This race is so fun partly because of the team unity and confidence and strength you get from each other.. (especially at 2 am when you take a shot of major caffeine jump out of the van to run 7 miles) But its so fun to see other team names, costumes and van decorations! Ours was pretty stellar.

I loved having my husband do this race with me this year! He was amazing! We decided that we are going to do it together here on out!
This is Brent getting ready for his first leg Friday Afternoon 4pm
I was the runner right after him, He passed off to me and snapped this pic of me walking around after finishing my first leg at about 5:30 PM
Many memories made in the honey bucket... hehe..
Some people actually take to long in the honey bucket and miss their exchange... hehe.. one of our teammates left miss kenz hangin. Don't worry he was only like a minute
This is actually prior to starting our 3rd and final leg
This are all the peeps that we hung out/smelled in the van!
Seriously, Yes its june in utah and once we got to the top of the mountain.. In fact they almost had to change the course due to the extreme amount of snow on the trail still!
Towards the end of the race there is a hill.. THEE HILL known as Ragnar. It is a leg that has a 1,700ft elevation gain!!! No joke. Dirt Road-Straight up! There is actually a sign that says "rough, steep, winding hill fro the next 5 miles." motivating eh? Bless the souls in our van that did it. They rocked it. Better then I could ever do. In fact, I'd rather run 10 miles flat then 4 straight up!
Our sprint to the FINISH!! We completed 191 miles inhours..
Love this man.
WAY TO GO team "DUH WINNING"'!!Overall, this was an experience that will never be forgotten!! It is so fun to be in a van with 5 of your favorite people, eating, laughing, sweating and sleeping? together. If you have never had a chance to do one of these races I highly recommend you write it on your bucket list! This is a race anyone can do! It isn't as intimidating as a half or full marathon because you run less mileage with breaks in between adding up to an average of 17-20 miles in two days! It will be one of best races of your life!
Q. Would you rather run 10miles flat or 4 miles uphill?
Q. Does your spouse run races to?
He does now!!! Let the addiction begin! ;)
