Anyone fancy a relay?


Got to be honest, I had hoped to do a little post mid-week telling you all delightedly that Juli and I had been chosen to run Ragnar DC with Another Mother Runner. But alas…nope.They didn’t pick us.

I was actually a bit gutted – I’d been so excited and so hopeful that we would be picked. But it’s fine really, it’s not a big deal in the real world,  and we are both really proud and happy with the video we submitted. However combine this bad news with the end of this season of Game of Thrones and for a brief moment, my mood was as black as the wicked heart of Joffrey Baratheon!

However…a woman ‘scorned’ is a woman who flipping wants a PR!

Fire in belly…LIT.

Yeah, San Francisco, I’m talking to YOU!

Having said that, a few months of dreaming about Ragnar means that this girl WANTS TO RUN RAGNAR! So, as the Husband suggested last night, maybe I should just put a team together.

So…does anyone fancy it? There are three we realistically could do.

1) San Francisco to Calistoga – Sept 20th – 21st

2) Vegas – Nov 8th – 9th

3) Southern California – Spring 2014

I haven’t thought much more about it really but have a think. Let me know. It would be fun!!

    Sorry to hear you didn’t get selected — their loss!!
    You already know my vote for Ragnar. The only conflict might be if I run the Big Sur International Marathon — I’m not racing that one (i.e., I’m planning on taking it easy and enjoying the view), so as long as they’re not the same weekend, I should be OK.

      I need to check those dates too – want to do Big Sur in a relay team next year!!

      One vote for SoCal! I quite fancy it too.

  2. I would if I didn’t live on the east coast! I think we would have a blast! Sorry they didn’t pick you but it was their loss! 🙂

      Darn the fact there’s a continent between us!!!! Maybe we should do one in Kansas, in the middle!!!

      1. That might work. I have family in OK we could even do one there and stay for free. 🙂

    I just volunteered to be on a friend’s team in Sept for SF to Napa or I totally would have voted to do that one with you. I am so sorry you didn’t get picked. I loved your video!

      So if we did SoCal in Spring you might be persuadable???? Thanks for the vid comment as well – we were proud and happy with what we submitted. Can’t ask any more.

    Sorry I am way behind on all my favorite reads so this comment is a bit behind the times. But booo for not getting picked- their loss. Your video was fantastic. I would love to do a relay! They sounds like so much fun. Maybe SoCal or Vegas.

      Okay, one more for the team! SoCal seems to be the best timed one for everyone. We have four runners interested so far, I think.
