Ready or not, today it all begins! First thing in the morning I am heading to a couple stores for some last minute necessities, dropping things off at our hotel in Bowmanville (simply because it’s convenient for me to do so!) and then carpooling to Reebok headquarters to decorate our vans for Ragnar.
The month of May flew by and I am ready to embrace June by cramming into a van for two days while we run from Cobourg to Niagara Falls. Sounds fun, doesn’t it?!
Last year the entire race was new to me, but I am no less excited this time around. Some of my teammates are the same as last year but we have some new members as well. Meet the 2018 Ragnar Niagara Endorphriends:
In case you’ve forgotten, Ragnar is a relay race which in this case extends over 300 kilometres from Cobourg to Niagara Falls. We will pile into two vans (6 runners to a van) and take turns running until everyone has run once…. then we will do it all over again… and then again… until everyone has run three times! Too many chips will be eaten, not much sleep will occur, but fun will definitely be had!
As we begin our race Friday morning, we want to make sure that you know how to follow along on social media with us. Four of us (two in each van) are committed to posting frequently and will do our best to tag our teammates so you can check their posts out as well.
Here are some links to those you may want to check out:
If it seems overwhelming, I recommend sticking to Instagram as there will be more content via stories posted there than on Facebook or Twitter. You can also follow #endorphriends throughout both days! We can’t wait to share the race with you from the van decorating tonight to the finish line on Saturday in Niagara Falls.
