We had a super busy weekend this past weekend with our beer dinner and then my last pre-Ragnar meeting. I promise I’ll write about the beer dinner next week, but this week is going to be Ragnar, Ragnar, Ragnar.
I will tell you that the surprise (not to me) hit of the dinner was this beer:
Despite pre-beer comments of “really? peanut butter?” and “Reeses peanut butter cup beer?”, it was loved by every.single. person. Go NOW and buy some. You know I’ll be buying more.
But now let’s talk Ragnar…
We got our team shirts last night and I have to say they are some kind of awesome!
Today we are going as a group and getting a Ragnar manicure. I haven’t had a professional manicure in more than 10 years, so this should be fun. It’ll also be cool to hang with the ladies from both vans.
Tomorrow I will run my last pre-Ragnar run. I ran a little over 5 miles yesterday at the hottest point of the day and it went well. So, I figure 5-7 miles on Tuesday and I’m good to go. Thursday night, I will sadly miss out on most of the van decorating, but will hopefully get over there towards the end, so I can at least see Van 1 off on their journey. (Two soccer practices + a husband with a crazy busy week means not a lot of play time for mommy.)
I need to start packing, but so far, my packing looks something like this:
Skirt Sports has $20 off of ANY purchase over $30 with code: JC89588 (affiliate link)
plus free shipping on any purchase over $100 until September 16!
Yes, I need to somehow pull 3 outfits out of that mess. I know I want to wear my Skirt Sports skirts and my ProCompression socks, but am struggling to find colors that work together. Apparently I need to buy more socks and more skirts. Shh, don’t tell Beer Geek.
I’ll be spending today doing laundry and working on my personal packing list from all of those awesome Ragnar posts(in addition to that little thing called work). I guess the first thing I should do is figure out what bag I’m taking and find Jones’ sleeping bag…
If you’ve done a relay of any sort, tell me your best tip or one thing I can’t forget!

I haven’t heard of that beer, but I’m seriously interested. Hmmmm, on the to do list.
Good luck at Ragnar! You all will have a blast. I love the shirts!
I am SO excited for you! I love your Ragnar team name & team pedicure time? That’s AMAZING! I can’t wait to read your recap and see how the van decor came out 🙂
Good luck! I can’t wait to hear how it goes 🙂 I love that you guys are doing pre race pedicures together.
that beer is what you drank at zooma, right? 🙂
Your team shirts are really cute! I like the sparkle
So glad you like the decals, I was thinking how awesome they were when I was cutting them! And love that you ladies got the manicures….I got so many compliments on mine when I was at the race!! So excited for you!
My best Ragnar Tip is pack your outfits in separate gallon sized zip locks. This makes it easier to just grab an outfit and also makes it so your sweaty outfits don’t stink up the rest of your bag or van (not like that won’t happen anyway). In other news, I’m actually working section 5 of the Ragnar DC course (exchanges 25 to 30). I’ll be around in a big ass cargo van.
Wow! So glad you really like the shirt! It’s quite a responsibility choosing something and hoping 12 women will like it! You Can never go wrong with a bit if bling though right?! I love having my nails done and it was something I won’t ever forget before our Ragnar adventure begins!
P.s- see you Thursday!
Looks like you have the packing under control.
So exciting!! Love the shorts and that you all get the same manicure! I hope the weather improves by then.
