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)
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
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!!!
