Leg 34 – Run the Ragnar, Be the Ragnar

Okay, so this is kind of late, I know. The race did end Saturday. However, Audrey tore it up on her final leg and I have to let everyone know about it. Her final leg is known as the Ragnar leg, which was supposed to be the most difficult leg of the whole course. It was 4 miles, all uphill at average of an 8% incline.

Look how happy she is to be running

Most of the people “running” this leg actually walked it because it was so difficult and they were all so tired. Not Audrey, though, she was truly Ragnarly.

Thirty-one hours after starting, the whole team rolled into Park City triumphant and just ahead of a torrential downpour and thunderstorm. Oh yeah, and they were all wearing tie died dyed stuff.

I am so proud of my Ragnarly wife.

  1. You know those times when you’re running really slow and you think, “I bet I could walk faster than this”? Well, I’ve decided it’s a myth. Running, even at a snail pace, you can still beat the walkers.

  2. Sometimes you just can’t hold greatness back. We are very lucky to be associated with you woman. You can be our guiding light or wishing star or silver lining or diamond in the rough or whole ball of wax, but we are more than satisfied with you being just our Audrey. Great job. Love-you-always.
