Once again I had the unbelievable opportunity to run for team NUUN. This time it was actually team NUUN/PRO COMPRESSION.
Sandy, Hyla, Zoe, Vanessa, Nicole, Me, Kelsey, Jenny, Sara,
Matt (yep we had one guy on the team!), Bri and Brennan.
I am very grateful that I had this chance!
I am a very proud NUUN ambassador!
Ok so Vegas...
This was my first RAGNAR and relay number 2 for me.
I was in van 1, runner 4.
I had the best teammates in my van it was a HTC 2012 reunion with one awesome addition to the gang!
Zoe, Nicole, Sandy, Vanessa, Kelsey and me
Here are the Van 1 runners in order that they ran up and down this course!
1. Nicole aka super new mom... super sweet and funny...badass runner (see pic below) ..Hello leg 1.... most notable line of the weekend "We are so going to be last".... thank God she was so wrong...!
2. Kelsey The ultimate southern girl! So fun and positive! I love her accent Y'all! Most notable line...well Kelsey wins that part....but I cannot say the best ones without her permission so I will say these... "Running is fun!" "This is the nicest hotel I have ever been to" "I don't want this to end" "Holla for a dolla y'all" !!
4. That was me. Notable Quotes: "Don't touch the Shi!!!!!t" "Did not puke on this leg!"
6. Vanessa Last but not least..Vanessa! She was also in my van for Hood to Coast and it is official: I cannot run a relay without this wonderful gal. She is the sweetest person I know. It is impossible to not like her. She is so caring, always wanting to make sure everyone is OK. I was supposed to be runner 6. A few weeks before the relay Ragnar changed the legs and runner 6 was given a really really really HARD 10 miler. 10 freaking miles. I went in MAJOR panic mode and I asked Vanessa to change runner position with me and she, being the nicest girl ever, said yes. Who says yes to that? Vanessa! So she had THE hardest leg of all 36 legs to run. 10 hard hilly DARK miles. Yep it was her night leg. She killed it and never complained once. Notable quote: on the phone talking to her husband after that really dark leg where the battery of her knuckle lamp went dead and she had called him from the road to let him know the situation: "I am alive"
I will stop here for this post....more to come....!
