last year, i did something insane called the ragnar relay: wasatch back. and by insane, i mean insanely awesome.
this year, i've agreed to participate in the insanity once more.
last year, my 3 legs of the relay race were hard, but not too terrible. runner #8 = 3.4 + 7.0 + 5.9 = 16.3 miles.
this year, i've apparently lost my mind. runner #6 = 6.9 + 8.1 + 3.1 = 18.1 miles.
the 6.9 mile leg? a "knee-jarring descent" into the ogden valley. categorized as "very hard."
the 8.1 mile leg? a "difficult uphill climb" into east canyon reservoir. also categorized as "very hard."
and i can only imagine that by the 3.1 mile leg, i'll be borderline catatonic.
last year, superstar runner brother chris was runner #6. i am not a superstar runner. yet.
in light of recent sad events in my life, i've realized that i need something to occupy my time, thoughts and feelings. i need a goal, a challenge.
ragnar relay: wasatch back 2012 is my new challenge. bring. it. on.
