This + This = That. It's a mathematical certainty.

I've put plastic on your chairs in anticipation of this, so feel free to wet yourselves with excitement.  Cuz to get back into this interbloggernet the inaugural post I've chosen is.......


......wait for it




............wait a little longer




............this is fun right?




RAGNAR NAPA VALLEY!!!


Please double your meds immediately.


I'm pretty sure math is hard but here's the remedial version.  


2 days + 12 people + 186.4 miles - sleep + portapottys - sanity + 11teen gallons of fluids - dignity (in some cases) + stinky clothes - lucidity + cowbell = Team S.L.A.M.B. (finishing at team 288th out of 310 teams and we are proud of it!!)


Team S.L.A.M.B. obviously stands for Stop Looking At My Butt


It's a real problem you gize.

I cannot even begin to explain the kind of fun and unique experience this is for anyone who hasn't done it.  All I can do here is show you what it might look like from your perspective.

I like to be FAUXtivated (fake it til you make it) when I blog and stuff.

Fake tattoos (see A) + frealz running clothes bought from Sports Authority (see B) = You're legit even if you don't act like it (see C and D)

Exhaustion (see A) + 17-ish miles (see B) = Don't try to pass that girl right before your personal finish line on a sprint over some shrubs and what turns out to be a hose hidden under the dirt or you'll look like this (see C, D, E) 

(A)

Significant Others (see A times 4) + 48 hrs of survival (see B times 6) = TrueLoveAlways (see C)

Sweaty people in a van + Sweaty people in a van + Sweaty people...............you get the idea = Sweaty CRAZY people in a van

(see all)
















Choosing to be team captain (see A) + running man skillz (at the finish line no less,.....see B) = the best team a girl could ever ask for (see C times 3)

Long live Team S.L.A.M.B!!!

I don't know what's wrong with me but I just don't feel jealous. At all. Glad you had a good time though. I think I am going to take a nap now.



BTW, this is Sara, not Morgan. I am far too lazy to change the user name.

You make math fun and easy. You should teach it or something. You also make ragnar fun and easy. You should teach it or something.

Hooray! I feel like I've been at the finish line for months, waiting for you to sprint across and end your blogging hiatus. It's just like I dreamed it would be.
