I still consider it an honor to have run RTB for two years.
I've run a one day relay in this area a few times and then ragnar northwest passage 8 times. I have run one trail relay which i enjoyed very much and would like to do again. in 6 weeks, i'll be running a road relay in hawaii.
Relays are my favorite events by far.
good run this morning. 6 miles with 3 at tempo. each tempo mile was slightly faster than the last. running has felt much better this week. I'm still feeling the back a bit but it has mostly settled down.
Last day of busy season food at work so i have not had a donut, pizza, chinese food nor sandwiches. but i did have a piece of leftover fried chicken.
bonus: last ragnar in july, i calculated i was awake for 31 hours. I can never sleep at relays so don't fuss about it at all now. I lay down and relax and IF i happen to dose off for 20 minutes or so, i consider that a win. we've also had some long travel days. I forget how long this was total, but i'd gotten up early to get in a long run (still remember - 17 miles) then got to the airport. Then our flight was cancelled. we rescheduled for 8 hours later but it wasn't worth going home and coming back to the airport so just hung out at the airport. Then on the flight where i really cannot sleep on airplanes and then a train ride once we'd gotten off in London. I know I dosed on the train ride a bit. By the time we got to our B&B, I was having some aura type vision impediments
and had deep circles under my eyes. or maybe that was just the bad lighting in the b&b bathroom?
