Ragnar SoCal or BUST – Meet the Tough Chik Team!

28 Mar

ragnarrelaylogoMASK_HIGHRES

I am beyond stoked for Ragnar SoCal!  What is Ragnar you may ask?  According to the Ragnar website:

“Ragnar is the overnight running relay race that makes testing your limits a team sport.  You and 11 of your craziest friends (or 5 of your crazier friends for an ultra team) pile into two vans and tag team running 200(ish) miles, day and night, relay-style. Only one runner hits the road at a time. Each participant runs three times, with each leg ranging between 3-8 miles (OR 12 in our case!) and varying in difficulty. So, from the elite runner down to the novice jogger, it’s the perfect race for anyone.”

I have wanted to compose a Team Tough Chik Ragnar team for years, but with the encouragement of Tough Chik Ambassador, Lisa, I decided that 2014 was going to be the year and So Cal was going to be the place!

 

We would LOVE for you to follow our adventure!  Below is our team and their individual blogs, twitter and instagram handles.  We will be using the hashtag #TTCRagnar14.  So follow Team Tough Chik and we tough it out down the California coast starting Friday April 4th at 6AM!  It will be EPIC!

3 Things Thursday

20 Mar

I am normally not a 3 things Thursday kind of gal, but today I felt like posting a quick note and this seemed to be a good way to do it.

1. Ragnar So Cal – Team Tough Chik is gearing up for Ragnar So Cal which is a 12 person relay from Huntington Beach to San Diego.  We will cover 194 miles on foot over the course of 2 days (really 1 and a half).  We have a great group of women racing, some from down the street and some from far away.  Over the next few weeks you will be hearing much more about Ragnar So Cal.

2. Swim Week – I am training for Ironman 70.3 Boise right now, and this is swim week.  Which means most of my workouts are in the pool.  At this point I feel like I sweat chlorine!  Today is a rest day and I am SO ready!

3. Hot Chocolate 15K – On Sunday I am returning to PetCo Park in San Diego to race the Hot Chocolate 15K.  I rarely race the same race year after year, so I am excited to see if my running has improved over the past year.
