I just found out that we have a full slate of runners for the Ragnar Relay Chicago. I am very excited! This is a 200 mile relay, going from Madison, WI to Chicago, IL.
Two vans, twelve runners, run, sleep(?), repeat!
This will be my third Ragnar, and it is such a fun and unique experience! The Chicago race is new this year. The past two years, we have run the Ragnar Great River, in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
That makes two running events scheduled for 2011 so far – the Fargo half and the Chicago Ragnar. It’s so motivating to start making these plans. Time can really start to drag at this time of year (any other cold weather dwellers out there?), and it helps to have something to plan for and work toward.
I am working from Jeff Galloway’s half marathon training program, and I will add in some multiple run days later on to help prepare for Ragnar. Each runner has three legs over the course of the race. I just started reading Galloway’s Book on Running, and I will most likely have thoughts to share about that after I finish.
What are you excited about today? 🙂
