Running tip of the day: Don’t run 24 miles within a 16 hour time period and then jump into a 15 passenger van for 6 hours to drive home. Just trust me on this one.
We finished. I loved it. I am now one of those ‘Ragnar 4 Life’ people that talk about Ragnar like it was the best vacation ever (only runners understand how you could call running/not showering/driving around in a van/not sleeping can be called a vacation).
We got home in the middle of the night and my brain is not currently working properly so I will have the recap of the race post up later.
How we ate after the race was over when we were all starving after surviving off of bagels and fruit snacks for the previous 30 hours.
Pizza. Pizza. Domino’s, I haven’t had you for a while but you are delicious.
After hanging out at the finish line for a while we went to one of our teammates parent’s house for the best burgers and grilled veggies in Nevada. We all inhaled these babies. We also got to take showers at their house and get into comfy clothes for our trip home.
They also had homemade peach pie and ice cream waiting for us.
And on the drive home I convinced my team that a DQ stop at 10 pm for S’mores blizzards (and french fries because after all of that sweating we needed to replenish our sodium) was necessary.
Favorite type of pie?!?
Favorite delivery pizza?
On vacations: Do you run? Do you plan your vacations around races?
