A few weeks ago, I was impressed by Lindsay’s ability to agree to run on a relay team with a bunch of people she didn’t know.
“That crazy Lindsay,” I thought. “I certainly wouldn’t do that!”
Unfortunately, Lindsay got sick and was unable to run the relay. I had been looking forward to the report of her zany adventure and so I was saddened that I wouldn’t be able to live vicariously through her.
As luck would have it, I received notification through a Facebook message to Raffi about a Ragnar Relay team who had lost a couple of runners and were in somewhat desperate need of runners to fill those slots. At first, I was skeptical, but the more I thought about it, the more excited I got about it. So, I showed up to their team meeting. They all seemed like decent (dare I say, downright fun) people so I quickly agreed to join their team and run the toughest leg of the relay!
Thus, on the weekend before Thanksgiving I’ll be running/traveling by slow moving van from Clearwater to Daytona Beach as a proud member of Team Twisted Blister. Check out the course map. I’m runner #11.
