(we’ll get back to the final Ragnar recap(s) soon – promise – just a few more housekeeping items from that marathon I almost accidentally BQ’d at this weeked)
((no, I’m not over it yet.))
I loved all your comments on my (slightly dramatic) Huge Eug recap. A good mix of “get over yourself” and “I feel ya girl”, which I probably needed to hear. I will go on the record again and say that I am THRILLED with the PR, and the exciting things that lie ahead. And that yes, I will get that F’ing BQ.
But aside of all the actual running-running things, there were some other fun bits from the weekend worth noting. Mostly because there hasn’t been a photo of an alcoholic beverage on here in a while and I don’t want y’all thinking I got all crazy and went sober or something.
Carbloading at Rogue Brewing Co
… and at Safeway
… and at Off the Waffle (actual non-liquid carbs, this time)
((EAT HERE, SERIOUSLY))
… AND at the rental house (both liquid and non), run-fam style.
And since running IS what brought us to town, we had to soak in some of the local magic…
Shake out river run to scope out the course
… finish line visualization (yes I wore the same thing two days in a row – sorry I don’t pack three suitcases for a weekend trip like SOMEBODY…)
… almost getting run over at the expo meeting new friends (Hi Jen and Holly!)
… popping post-race bottles outside of Hayward, and [accidentally] pouring some out for our homies (ok I kicked my glass over – minor PR party fail)
Ok, bottom line is, it was a freaking amazing weekend. Great atmosphere, great friends, great everything. Race “disappointment” aside, it’s going in the books as a big fat WIN. Eugene, you blew my compression socks right off and I can’t wait for you to do it again.
