Ready for Ragnar DC

Well,  the time is finally here ... I will be running the Ragnar Relay Ultra with 5 of my fellow crazy runners!!  We are doing 6 legs each and my total mileage is about 35 miles.   We will start our run in Cumberland, MD .. Our team will "head East through thick forest trails and scenic paths ".  Around nightfall, we will run through Civil War-era towns,  pass the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial then head to the finish line to PARTY!!!

200 miles + 6 crazy runners + 1 amazing driver  = Epic Memories

I am the 2nd runner so my legs look like this:
6.3 miles ( HARD )
4.5 miles ( Moderate )
2.8 miles ( Easy )
6.8 miles ( Hard )
6.9 miles ( Moderate/Hard )
6.9 miles ( Moderate )

OH MY!!!

 Definitely will need my favorite pairs of Mizuno Wave Rider 17's and Wave Hitogami ... Plus,  I think I will pack my Wave Kazans just in case we are on some trails!

Since I will need 6 running outfits I am packing all my Oiselle!!!!  So excited for these new pieces the Gwen Tank, Chevrona Shimmel, and Rogas!

And FOOD ... KIND bars, Picky Bars, Pretzels, PB, Pickles, my favorite bread, bananas, Milburn Orchards Honey Crisp apples, trail mix,  instant organic soups ( thank you Holly R. for suggestion ) and ??? whatever else I grab and toss in bag!  Plus a ton of NUUN and water!

I also packed baby wipes, Wet Ones, foam roller, the stick, foot log, lacrosse balls, my TENS unit, vest, head lamps, fuel belt, handheld water bottle, and some running fuel ( honey stingers )!

I have to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Holly R. and the rest of my Oiselle family for all the advice, suggestions and best wishes!!!!  You gals really have helped calm my nerves and get me totally pumped to take on RagnarDC!!!

All you Ragnar Vet's out there please let me know what else you would bring or wish you had brought on your race!

Happy Running!
