Yes! I finished!
Really...it's quite interesting how emotional I still get (almost 2 weeks later) when I think about what my Ragnar experience did for me.....refresh, remind me about running happy!!!
From start to finish, we all were smiling! And laughing! And crying! And testing our mettle.
Hell yeh! Team Tough Chik indeed
Being in close quarters with these amazing ladies is truly awesome. I got a chance to meet 13 awesome women. Each one is truly fabulous and special in her own right. Someof us were coming back from injury, some of us had never ran that far, some of us were questioning our abilities. And each and every time one of us doubted, someone else was there to hold a hand or push or cheer or boost the mood with a pep talk!
We all conquered something in taking on this race! And we had a freakin blast.
Big or small - I have done both. And LOVE em!
I love the bond that is created with everyone. I love the strength you gain from others. I love how you can take turns leaning on each other. Knowing there is a support for you. Knowing that any moment a van of screaming hooting hollering crazy women will come careening around a corner to cheer you on and make you laugh. OR...how loud you really can cheer when your team mate comes rounding the bend.
And surprising how emotional this whole thing really is.
And how much something so tough and yet so fun teaches you that YES. YOU. CAN.
And that when you aren't sure you can dig deeper you find something inside you might not have known you had. All because of those last 30 some hours you've spent with a hilarious, hell bent on being awesome group of women!
And, as crazy as this sounds....
I CANNOT believe I am getting the amazing opportunity to do another RAGNAR....
