Ragnar Report

Wow, I didn't think it would really take me to July to post but so much has happened that it has.  I have a lot to catch up on.

First things first,

Hubby and his teammates did the Ragnar in June.  If you are not sure what the Ragnar is, let me explain.  It is a 188 mile run with a team of 12 runners. Each runner, runs three legs and each leg is anywhere from 5 to 8 miles. Hubby's team started at around 8 am Friday morning and finished around 3 pm Saturday.  --CRAZY!!

We drove up to Park City on Saturday to see them run in.  It was hot and I have never seen so many people in one place in all my life.  Truly it was insane.

Bishop was the final runner on the team


The whole team crossing the finish line together.

The team, 7 women and 5 men

The team logo, one of the rules were that the vans that carried the runners had to be decorated.  This is the back window on the van Hubby rode in.

He was very tired (and a little smelly) but D5 was glad to have him back. Check out that medal!

I am so proud of hubby, he trained very hard.  I am also glad there were no injuries and they had a lot of fun. 

I still think its CRAZY!!!! (but what do I know.)
