I think this guy just won the Spooktacular 5K costume contest...
Good morning, runners! First of all, WHERE ARE MY RACE REPORTS? I know some of you have been out rock-starring it up lately! Jule Diener, Historic Lincoln, Mountain Lakes, Rocketman Triathlon? Hellooooo? :~)
1) RACE REPORT
*From Darrell Harden
I had the privilege of participating in Ragnar Relay - Great River (RRGR) this weekend. RRGR sent teams of 12 (well, there were also teams of 6, and one crazy team of 4) runners on a trek across 196 miles, from the start in Winona, MN, to the finish in Minneapolis. Along the way, each runner on our team hit the road three times, trekking along roads and paved trails, up and down massive hills, and all day and all night, until the team reunites just before the finish and crosses the finish line together.
Our team finished the race in 31:37:56. That was good for 232nd place overall out of 280 teams. I can't imagine that any team had more fun than we did, though. For my part, I logged 18.37 in 2:31:10. I think everyone on our team ran ahead of her/his anticipated pace. Forty-eight hours removed from my last run, I'm still tired, but it was such a great experience!
Hope everyone down south is doing well. I'm registered for the Ladiga Half Marathon, and I'm looking forward to heading south to run with the ARC!
