R is for Ragnar, L is for Lego

as promised, the detes on my first ragnar experience...

my running:

LEG 1
5:30pm friday
9.2 miles
9.8min per mile average

LEG 2
4am saturday
3.4 miles
7.6min per mile average (hollllla!)

LEG 3
i-lost-track-of-time-but-it-was-sometime-saturday-afternoon
4.2 miles
(legs felt like cement at this point, btw)
9min per mile average

my thoughts on that:
i'm pleased with all my times, but i'm freakin' stoked about Leg 2. especially because i ran it thru random cow country. it smelled like home. i think it empowered me.

overall:
200 miles. 30ish hours. so much running. not so much sleeping. so much time in a mini van. not so much showering. so much dance partying on the side of the road.
oh, and sooo. much. LEGO.

my friend karolina. i could NOT get that vest on straight.

some of da crew. i wore that hood on my head app. 90% of the weekend.

i'm unsure if this is the sunrise or the sunset. 
because yeah, saw both of those events.

my preferred vantage point.

representin' the team. Run Your Leg-o!

this is my buddy james, and a friend he made.

my hardcore press-on ragnar tat on my (i-like-to-imagine-anyways) hardcore calf muscle.

don't be fooled, i wasn't that blissful. this was Leg 3, you know. that's more of an "i want to break your camera" smile.

the whole shebang, just past the finish line. i love us. 
L is for LEGO, by the way. not Loser.

p.s.
think LEGO needs a new ad campaign??

You should mail that picture (yes..MAIL, not email) to the Lego Company (Mattel?) and ask for money.

maybe they'll give us our own attraction at LegoLand. And/or a coupon of some sort...
