    That race sounds like a blast. I couldn’t imagine anything better than a relay race with my best friends. Let the good times roll!

    I have done 3 ragnar races, and I would strongly recommend bringing THE STICK. I have brought mine for all three races and not only have I used it endlessly, all of my van-mates wanted to use it, too. You’ll want it before your third leg. Have fun!

    This sounds so fun! I was asked to join a team once, but I was too scared about slowing everyone down. You guys are either going to party hard at the end or crash hard… or both πŸ˜‰

    Have a blast…was part of an ultra team for Ragnar PA last year. It was lots of fun…the ziploc bags of clothes, plus a separate one for after essentials (baby wipes, deodorant, etc.) was the best. Even though we were all organized, our van was trashed and a nightmare just a few hours into the adventure!

    Wow that is some extremely complicated packing! I have never ran any kind of race like that and would have no clue what to do! Looks like you are pretty organized to me! I will be interested to see how you rate your packing after the race, whether you brought too much, not enough, etc

    That is one of the coolest races I have ever heard of! When I visited Miami and the Keys, I thought about how fun a bike trip from the former to the latter would be, a run relay works too! The logistics of packing and organizing is a bit daunting though…

    P.S. We always have chicken sausage in our fridge but never have cut it up for a fajita- great idea! Usually we’ll make chicken sausage pasta with bell peppers, onions, and artichokes OR chicken sausage sandwiches…
