THIS race is in three weeks. And we just got our start time. Tricia (AKA Major Miles from Endurance Isn’t Only Physical) will start off Team Nuun Platuun at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, August 26.
I am running Leg 4, which is moderate difficulty and looks like this:
Leg 16, which is (SUPER) easy and looks like this:
And Leg 28, which is also easy and looks like this:
Should I be training for these? Tricia is doing downhill repeats because she has Leg 1 and it looks like this:
Poor Tricia. But I think I’m going to be OK. I think I can do this. I feel pretty
guilty lucky that I got some of the easier legs. But I’m also happy about it since my sub-2-half attempt will be three weeks after Hood to Coast. That will look like this:
In other news, Kim, one of my teammates on Team Nuun Platuun, got selected for an Ambush Makeover on the Today Show! You can watch it HERE. She looks amazing! And don’t forget to enter my Nuun giveaway HERE before the end of Sunday. There will be two winners!
I leave you with this:
Nice legs 😉 but, HOLY C-Rap for Tricia's first leg, that's a downhill if I've ever seen one.
so my first leg of a ragnar relay looks similar to yours, gradual downhill. Although its still a gradual decline, 1000 ft elevation change is still no joke. MAKE sure you empty your bladder and other end before you go- trust me on this one 😉
So excited for you! Will be nice to get the tough run out of the way first and then you can just enjoy the other two legs. This will be one of the best experiences of your life I know!!
Oh yeah, you can do this!!
Congrats on drawing “easy” legs for HTC. I'm loving the YGG elevation, definitely a sub 2 course!
El-E-Vation! (cue U2!!!)My 2nd leg, #17 ends up hill, ranked VERY hard. I'm scurred.
You so can do it! The good thing is you can get your toughest leg out of the way first when you are still fresh and non-sleep deprived! :)I can't imagine that first leg. My knees say OUCH!
Those look like some challenging legs – I'd definitely be training for downhill repeats!!! 🙂
And I think you get to run through Zigzag! That was where I used to go with my dad 🙂 I think it looks like you got some GOOD legs!
You can definitely do this! Where are your running that half? I like the looks of that course!
WOW — good for you on the 13-mile run!!!!! Your relay legs look great, but boy do I feel bad for Tricia! I can't wait to read the recap! I know its going to be an amazing experience for all of you.Kim's makeover is amazing, too! Holy hot mama!
