Calling all runners, joggers, or wanna be's(that's me): it's time to get a team together for the upcoming ragnar relay! Check it out and see if you're in. http://www.ragnarrelay.com/ We still need like 5 more to join our team of 12 in this insane relay. It's a 183 mile (that is not a typo), 24 hour (yes, like all thru the night... great, now I've got that Cindy Lauper song stuck in my head) grueling run from Wickenburg to Mesa. So all of you saying #*$$ NO... each runner will do 3 legs of 3-8 miles each and rest in between (ya, RIGHT), seriously, that sounds just like our good 'ol junior high slumber parties- only we'd dance all night instead of run!
There are awards for the best decorated support vehicles (which Mr.B has graciously volunteered to drive), best team name, and lots of other prizes! It's about $95 per person plus the cost of food, gas, and uniforms. The race is not until Feb. but we need the $ and registration in by November - then we'll have a team meeting to look at the course and decided who will run where. (I call the 3 mile legs with absolutely no elevation!)
Last year there was a team that passed off a donkey pinata to each team member and they literally ran with it sitting on their shoulder. Can you guess what their team name was... yep, "haulin' ass". There was also the group name, "need more cowbell", or how 'bout "picked last in gym class", or "we have a token fat guy" - that cracked me up! There are some GOOD times to be had here my friends. I noticed that this year there will also be a "run for Nie" team - that's cool!
There are about 150 teams signed up already, so we need to hurry and get on the list! It's gonna be WILD!
So if I can't convince you to run, we do need 3 volunteers per team... I'm sure you'll at least get a t-shirt (and some great laughs). If you're up for it, let me know asap... if not, then please do share some fabulous ideas for a team name - maybe you'll win a prize!
