Ragnar Relay

I ran in a 196-mile relay race from Chattanooga to Nashville in November.
I had an awesome team and we had a blast together!
There were 12 of us and we all ran 3 times. My total was 18.6 miles.
It was very challenging, but very accomplishing. It was an adventure to say the least.
We started running Friday morning, ran through the night, and finished Saturday afternoon.
I think my grand total of sleep was an hour and a half throughout the whole race!
A few of our runners got lost- one ran 4 extra miles, one 2 extra, and a couple a few extra blocks.
One girl got run off the road by a car resulting in some pretty crazy flesh wounds.
A couple with minor GI problems, (I guess that's common during a race like this). Let's just say the port-a-potties were well-used!
We had a couple injuries, but everyone was able to finish their shifts.
So it was quite the experience, but I loved every minute of it and will definitely will be doing more relays in the future!
