Ready for the Ragnar Relay

Tomorrow morning we kick off at 10am. Ultra Team, meaning a team of 6 crazies. As I write this, I cannot recall what our team name is, but hey, I really can't tell you about the course either which is why I include the link to the site. I was asked if I wanted to play and said, sure, I'm in.

I like the history behind Ragnar and have included it below.

Have a great weekend everyone and if you are curious, we should be done around 3pm on Saturday:-) BR

Ragnar was a 9th century Norse King. He was a pirate, a raider, a conqueror, an explorer, and a wild man. The tough, fearless, rugged attributes of this Norse King are shared by all who participate in a Ragnar Relay. In much the same way, a Ragnar Relay provides runners the freedom to roam, to explore - a free-spirited curiosity to get out there and experience outdoor adventure. And maybe even to conquer. And though tough or rugged may not perfectly describe you, these attributes become a goal - something to strive for.

In a Ragnar Relay the wild nature of this Norse King is embraced by many participants. Participants who aren't afraid to paint their van plaid, to bring along their own hair band, to join together in yelling as they cross the finish line. You may think that you are not one of them, but you are. Everyone has a wild side and nothing brings it out of you like a Ragnar Relay.

Long live the Ragnar in us all!
