Have you ever done something and thought to yourself: “This is what I was meant to do!”
Yes, that’s how I felt about Ragnar. It played to all of my strengths. I mean, I’m not fast (and seem to be getting slower, sigh) and I don’t really enjoy running longer than 10-12 miles at a time.
But I can run frequently and I need very little sleep.
Even after running 5 half marathons in five days x 2, I was shocked at how good I felt on each run. My body never said to me: “Wait, didn’t we run just a few hours ago?” Nope, each time I went out to run, I was met by legs that felt fresh and ready to go. And each leg I got faster, much like when I do the multiple half marathons in a row.
I think I’ve found my super power. Now if only my budget and my “me time” allowed for me to run all the Ragnars in a year…
As a final wrap up, here are the finish pictures of our team. Between when I finished my run and the finish line at National Harbor, my awesome team rocked their runs despite hills, pouring rain, and a couple of missing signs. I’m so impressed by each and every runner on my team!
