Why am I doing this?

By , June 11, 2011 2:58 am

The drive up to the relay and the first legs were really fun. The trying to sleep in the high school gym? Not so much. I basically laid there awake for two hours, listening to the hustle and bustle of people coming in and out. Oh, and there was the person who stepped on my right ankle while I was laying down. But they had spaghetti there in the cafeteria (I ate before)!

I got really pumped up for my second leg. I AM SO HAPPY IT WAS ONLY 2.5 miles.

It was really misty and foggy when I was running it. When I got to the end they asked my number and I said 625 instead of 165. I tried to call my teammate’s name but I was so out of it I couldn’t remember it. Oops.

And now we have a bit of this going on:

I went out too fast and now my knee is bugging me. My last 9.9 mile leg should be interesting!

I want to be in my bed right now.

    I hope your knee miraculously feels better before you begin your next leg! I love that you’re live blogging.

    Good luck with the last leg of the race! Sounds like it’s a pretty amazing experience – can’t wait for a full recap!

    Good luck on your last leg! The gym thing doesn’t sound super fun, but the experience probably is overall, right??

    You should definitely think about River-to-River next year! It’s shorter, and you don’t have to sleep on a floor. 😀

      Yeah, it is fun overall. Especially now that it is over! If I did it again I wouldn’t try to sleep between my two legs, and go to my house between the last two runs. Ha ha. Or do a shorter relay like River-to-River 🙂

    This sounds like what I’ve heard from almost every one who’s done a ragnar. It’s really nice that you are posting while you’re in the moment to capture it.

    good luck on the last leg! Take it easy, you’ll still get there!

    Hope your knee is ok! Great job so far – a relay is fun and also tiring!! Keep it up!
