We did it once again!! We ran Ragnar!  What is Ragnar?  Ragnar is the overnight running relay race that makes testing your
limits a team sport. A team is made up of 12 individuals; each
individual runs 3 legs. The legs of the race vary in difficulty and
distance, from 3-8 miles, allowing elite and novice runners to run
together. Over 2 days and 1 night, teams run across 200 miles of the
country’s most scenic terrain. Combine that with crazy costumes, inside
jokes, a great finish line party and unforgettable stories. Some call it
a slumber party without sleep, pillows or deodorant…

We took a strong team and ran through
some of the most beautiful areas of the Southwest – high mountains and pine trees of Mt. Charleston (who knew Las Vegas has such beautiful high country??). Rugged Red Rocks. Scenic Lake Mead.  Is this really Las Vegas?  We ran from 8500 feet and snowy conditions into the dry, windy, valley below, taking in the views and conquering the challenging terrain.  We decorated ourselves, decorated our vans, and laughed and shared crazy stories with each other for 28 straight hours. At the finish line we celebrated the pure accomplishment of finishing, later we celebrated the fact that we came in 38th overall out of 518 teams and 18th in the co-ed division where there were 318 teams!  STRONG WORK TEAM CROSSFIT FLAGSTAFF!  Thanks for another fabulous team race!
