Ragnar Relay DC- Part 2

** I realized I forgot to mention one of the best parts about my Ragnar Team in my first post… OUR NAME! It was Weekend With Bernie, since one of our teammates is well, named Bernie. It was originally going to be Don’t Follow Bernie since he always gets lost on our runs, but another…

Ragnar Relay DC – Part 1

It is that time again. Time for me to get weird in a van with 5 other people, earn some blisters, and live off protein bars and peanut butter for the next day and a half. It’s time for Ragnar DC 2015! I am racing again this year with a team of 12, some new,…

ragnar relay: the september project
