There’s this race called a Ragnar Relay where a few thousand people get in vans…lace up their kicks…and do a 200-mile fun run. Twelve people per team….3 legs/person…individual mileage varies from 11-22 miles over the course of about 28 hours or so. The course started at the Golden Gate bridge at 0830 on a Friday morning and snaked its way through Northern California before ending in the upper end of Napa Valley. I jumped on a college buddy’s team and 3 awesome legs that actually got me pretty stoked on running. Leg 1: 5.9 miles through the city of Marin…nothing special scenery-wise…but I turned in a 7:50 pace. Leg 2: 6.7 miles during the sunset in the backhills of Petaluma; gorgeous. Met my goal and ran 7:58 minute miles; super pumped! Got three hours of sleep throughout the night and had a sunrise leg through foggy vineyards in Napa. Leg 3: 3.3 miles at a 7:19 pace…..I was hurtin’ but it felt great to crank it up a notch. All in all I ran about 16 miles. Next year I’m going longer. Want to do it with me?
