Ragnar Relay Race
The week after we got back from our Honeymoon to Hawaii, I left Brandon for 2 days while I ran the Wasatch Back. This is one of the famous Ragnar relay races starting in Logan and finishing in Park City. Every team has twelve members running a total of 182 miles. I ran Leg 6 which was 15.7 miles. My first run was 6.9 miles down a dusty, rocky road in 80 degree heat. My second leg was around midnight straight uphill for 5.2 miles. My third leg was 3.6 miles on a flat road and should have been easy but I was so sore from the day before it took me much longer than it should have. Despite my slow feet on leg 3 our team finished in just over 27 hours. I wish I would have trained for the run but with all the wedding planning and trips I had no time. The day after I got home I could barely move but I am so happy I did the race. It was a great opportunity to be outside doing one of my favorite things and to meet new people. Thanks to my Uncle Wayne and the Morgans for letting me tag along.
