Training Runs

A great question was brought up in the comments on the last post, and since Lori is on an internet fast, she asked me to address it. The question was regarding training for Ragnar and if in your training you should do more than one run in a 24 hour period to train.
The answer is YES.
In your training for the Ragnar, at least 2 separate times you should run twice in a 24 hour time period to help your body get ready for running your respective legs. So a run in the morning and a run in the afternoon/evening that same day is definitely recommended. Tally ho! It's going to be great!

Upcoming run/meeting

Hey all, does the 30th work for everyone? We need to get together not only for a fun run but also for a meeting to talk about the following things:

  • sponsorship
  • volunteers (their shift would be Friday June 19th 4-8:30pm in Huntsville, we need two more)
  • transportation (we need two suburbans or expeditions for the race)
  • food assignments
  • clothing (do we want matching shirts or visors? does any one have hookups?)
  • how the race works/logistics
  • leg changes
  • other concerns/questions

How does 7:30am work on the 30th?  We'll go for a nice 6 miler and then have a meeting promptly following at 9am.  For those who can't make the run hopefully can make it to the meeting.  Kristin would it be okay to meet at your house again? Do any of you have questions right now that you'd like to me find answers for? Anything thing you think we need to cover at the meeting that we haven't yet?

Oh, and ps, I'm going on this random internet fast for the next 3 weeks (May 20-June 10).  While I'm offline I'm passing my "captain" torch to Amanda in case anything of importance comes up.  I don't think any major things take place for Ragnar between now and then but if so, don't worry they will be covered.  If you need to get ahold of me please don't email me.  Call me or text me.  If you don't have my phone number leave your email address and I'll email you my number.   Thanks!

Finishing up Registration

You should be getting an email soon from Ragnar in which you'll have to accept a waiver.  You HAVE to accept in order to be able to compete in the race.  So please do it.  :) 

Also, I don't have the registration info for the following:

Diana C

If you DID send it to me somehow it got deleted because all of my super magical searching in gmail results nothing.  So sorry if you have to retype it.  I'll need the following information:

Phone Number
10k pace
Shirt size

Also, Heidi Nelson, runner #6 informed me today that she's not going to be able to race.  Amanda is already working on her replacement, we'll let you know who our new team member is.  We're sad to lose Heidi but hope she can join us next year (yah you read that right..,... you'll want to do it again, I promise..)

Changes to the Course

I emailed you all. But in case you check this before the email, they have made significant changes to the race course. It effects legs 16-31, which means BOTH vans. Check out the new race bible, if adjustments need to take place we can adjust. Take a deep breath and try not to freak out.

Personally, I'm WAY pumped that my second leg went from a 6 mile "moderate" to a newly improved 7.7 mile "very hard" climb up canyon. Who wouldn't be? hee hee.
