Beast Mode Ultra Relay- Meet my team!

Wow I can't believe its almost here! One week from TODAY I will be running in my second ultra relay, Northwest Passage Ragnar Relay. This go round my team comprises of all ladies, something I've never done before. Jill and Katy I've ran on other relays with before, Ashley is my weekend LR partner, and I've met Julia and Rachelle way back when the Las Vegas Ragnar took place. To sum it all up, there are no strangers on this trip!

Runner one- yours truly. Originally I was running lowest mileage leg with 28 miles, but they just changed it and now I'm at 31. Good news is my longest leg is the first, THANK GOODNESS bc I was D.E.A.D last ultra by the end.  

Runner 2- Ashley R- 30 miles- her first relay EVER-- so excited to share this experience with her. 

Runner 3- Katy- 31 miles - second ultra relay with this lady (and to think before May, I had never met her in my life) 

Runner 4- Rachelle -38 miles- absolute speed demon. After reading all her recaps from races, I'm beyond thrilled to watch her in action 

Runner 5- Jill- 29 miles Captain. 2nd time running a Ragnar with her. Most organized individual I know, which is so beneficial when running relays 

Runner 6- Julia- 42 miles- complete badass training for her first 50 miler. Probably the nicest individual you will ever meet. 

Aside from spending a few days with these lovely ladies, I'm looking forward to being able to visit Washington for the first time ever, and probably most importantly, get away from the swampy temperatures and potentially run fast.... its about time 


  1. Wooo I'm pumped! You're gonna LOVE washington!

  2. Good luck!

    My new running friends lost a runner for their Ragnar team and have been pressuring me to join them. Ack. I have so many conflicts during this weekend. But, I want you to know I actually thought about it. I just might come around one of these days.
