Ragnar Chicago 2014

Ragnar Chicago is always a fun time! This year I was runner #9, and my husband was runner #7. Van 2 drove up to exchange 6 on Friday morning where we met up with the rest of our team and waited for the hand-off. Team 31, I Just Wanted To Run We checked in, shopped, […]

Packing for Ragnar Chicago 2014

Ragnar Chicago is only two weeks away. TWO WEEKS!!!! I thought I re-run an edited post about packing for Ragnar to celebrate. The first year I ran Ragnar Chicago I packed like an idiot. I was gone from Thursday evening until Saturday evening, I had enough clothes for a week. I also had three pairs of running […]

Keeping my shoulder in place

It’s been a rainy week so far — welcome to Spring everyone! The shoulder I’ve been nursing my shoulder, working on the back muscles by weight training, and avoiding push-ups like the plague. So far, I’m pretty sure my shoulder hasn’t moved, but it’s hard to say for sure. The back exercises I’m doing include: […]

Road trip!

We are heading to Colorado in the morning. And by morning, I mean before-the-bars-close-in-Milwaukee morning; like college-kids-will-be-getting-last-call-drinks in the morning. Packing for vacation is ridiculous. I’ve packed a zillion pairs of Brooks running shorts, because they are comfortable, and five t-shirts. Most of the t-shirts are from Ragnar. The other two are Mickey Mouse. I’ve […]

Another Ragnar in the books

Every year Ragnar is a completely new experience, lot’s of fun, new friends and a few blips along the way. Our very first blip came around 8:30am on Friday morning when van 2 was at the Sheraton getting ready for our adventure. I was in the business center, unlocking cells on our Google spreadsheet so […]

Mr Potato Head is a Ragnartarian

Mr. Potato Head has joined a Ragnar Relay team. Can you feel the excitement? How else can you celebrate the starting line of a race from one state to the another state than by spreading confetti, colorful erasers, a unicorn (Holla to the Little Dog, BFF!), hamsters doing acrobats, flowers, and a calendar?? Mr. Potato […]

Gosh that’s a lot of stuff: aka How to not pack for Ragnar

What you see here are my packing skills from 2011 when I ran Ragnar Chicago for the first time ever. I was gone from Thursday evening until Saturday evening, I had enough clothes for a week. I also had three pairs of running shoes, granted it was raining so I will allow it, but the […]

Running Shoe Conundrum

What? Were you looking for Mr. Potato Head??? Don’t you fret. I promise, he’ll be back tomorrow with a fantastic adventure. I’ve got a few running events coming up and the countdown is: Four weeks until Ragnar Chicago, five weeks until the Rock n Sole half marathon. You might be wondering where my training at? […]
