Ragnar - Wasatch Back

Van 2 was AMAZING this year for the Wasatch Back Ragnar Relay. Good thing I like them all a lot because I spent 2 days in a car with them running, eating, sleeping and no showering! AJ and Suzette Jackson were fierce competitors, Carl and Michelle Rasmusen always prove age has no bearing on tough, long legs and Hillary is always consistently fast. Awesome team!!

I got to captain the van so I told everyone what to do and they did it! :)

After one really hot leg for each of us and a middle of the night run, we met up with Van 1 after they finished their third and final leg and we were beginning our last one from Park City to Soldier Hollow.

Michelle's 3rd leg was gruesome--6.1 miles of almost vertical dirt trail from Park City Ski Resort to the top of Guardsman's Pass--and it took most runners 90-150 min!

 Our team running down to the finish line with Carl who just finished the last 5.8 mile leg.

Our team did well!  Completed 188 miles in 29 hours and 28 minutes!!

Best part of the race was having Hillary run it with me! Can't wait til the insanity again next year!!
