You may have heard me talk about my love for all things Ragnar – and that I am a Ragnar Trail Warrior. Which to me is the best of both (running) worlds .. Ragnar Relay on trails – how could I not love this!!
A few weeks ago I received an e-mail that took me by surprise! I got an invite, as a Ragnar Trail Warrior, to attend the Ragnar Trail Summit! I was so doing my best happy dance (truly a crazy sight)! I had no idea what this was, and before checking my calendar I found myself saying YES! I figured everything else would fall into place – like who would shuttle my kids to and from school (my hubby leaves the house before 6:00 a.m. for work), Girl Scouts and practices, make family dinners etc. etc. and who would take me to the airport?!?! But I knew I could not pass up an opportunity to learn more about Ragnar Trail and Salomon, a race sponsor — and the only trail shoes I run in .. LOVE!
So in just over a week I will be flying to Salt Lake City, Utah .. ready to learn as much as I can and take it all in. Looking forward to the beauty of Utah (I’ve never been) and everything Ragnar! Oh yeah, and did I mention — I don’t love to fly .. so this is a big step! I’ve gotta put my big girl running shoes on and get ready for the ride!
As an “athlete” I am thankful for every opportunity I have been given in the past year .. thankful for my family who just lets me run this amazing ride and friends who are always cheering me on!
