Ragnar Relay Las Vegas 2009

On the last leg, I told my teammates that I didn't come to Vegas to drive the losing team to the finish line. Even though I was being sarcastic, they were in no way the losing team.

Besides coming to the Ragnar Relay's Las Vegas Series to be the driver of a non-losing team, I came to spend the weekend with friends and family in a seven passenger car as we worked as a team to relay across a 171 mile course that started at the Clark County Fairgrounds and ended at the Red Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

We spent a lot of time together and covered a lot of ground. Here are a few pictures to help you get a photo-recap of the weekend.













































The team ran all day and all night and then all day again. By the end we were tired and a little loopy (especially Joe before his last leg).

After seeing the race first hand, I might be tempted to do more than drive the next time Robyn asks me to participate.

Ummmm...I kinda hate the first picture of me. I look pregnant....(Brian would love that comment). It was so fun, and wouldn't have been the same without our trusty driver! I think we should put together a team again for next year...with you and Kimberly as runners!

I'm commenting so you'll realize I have a blog and start commenting:) I'm impressed you already blogged the race. I don't even have any of the pictures. Thanks for driving for us. It's so nice not having to worry about the driving, but you should for sure run next time.
