Hi Wasatch Back Friends. I hate that I'm missing all the training fun. I wish I could join all of you. I started the training schedule provided on the ragnar relay website and I feel pretty good so far. I was excited to see the legs that I have been assigned. I really can't wait! Training so far has been great, I made the goal to run in the early am and not take my huge jogging stroller out with me. I have been a little concerned about safety. It's not like I live in the ghetto, but I am surprised how many shifty looking characters seem to be out and about at 6:30 in the morning. So... any ideas on how to feel safer? I am trying to recruit some friends to run with me, but so far no one wants to get up that early, so it's just me. It will be nice once the weather is warmer and I can run with my kids. The stroller is not my favorite thing to push, but I love the strength it builds in my arms. Anyway, I'm rambling now, so I just wanted to let you all know that even though I can't be at the meetings or any of the runs you do between now and June, I am there in spirit!
