When running isn’t so fun

in running


There’s a reason I’ve been so tired (and cranky) recently. You see, one of my fabulous aunts ( I have many fabulous aunts- I’m lucky that way) asked me to run be part of a relay team this April. It’s no ordinary relay either. The Ragnar Relay will take 12 of us over 24 hours to complete the course from Ventura to Dana Point.

Everyone on the team will run three legs of the race, which means that training requires us to sometimes run twice a day to prepare. Today was the only day this week I could squeeze in two runs with Sharon, my faithful running partner. Just so happens it was raining. A lot. Since I’ve nominated myself to create and compete in the race’s video competition, I’ll give you a sneak peak at what goes into a race like this. (This is your cue to sit back/enjoy/feel sorry for me/tell me I’m hardcore/send bouquets of flowers as encouragement.)
