Well folks it’s Tuesday already and my work training is finally over. I got the third best grade in my class. I know what you are saying…”Third? Really? Should you be bragging about that?” To answer your questions, yes, yes, and yes I should. I will not mention how I think I was robbed and how I think the grading scale was skewed. But in any event, I am still awesome. (My competitiveness knows no bounds these days.)
Friday’s Ragnar Relay is bearing down on me and my team and I think we are ready! We are team Half Nuts and it looks like a very fun group. My legs don’t look too scary (again, not my actual legs, the legs I am running). If any of you haven’t heard about Ragnar go to this site and check it out. It’s a very cool event.
The Redhead and I have been put in charge of first aid kits and decorations. At first glance it seems a bit odd to have us do those two things. However, when you really think about it, it makes total sense. I love markers, Redhead loves decorating, I love ice packs, Redhead loves tiger balm and ace bandages. See? Total. Sense.
Redhead and I are in a van with some characters I have mentioned before. Our fearless leader is Jesus John. We also have Caribbean Steve, New Jen, P-Funk, and Young J. Should be an entertaining group. There was already talk of a pajama run on the second leg.
I can’t wait for this event and hope you’ll come back next week for the report. Stay tuned for Thursday’s thanks and have a great week!
I can tell you Ragnar is a blast! If you ever get the chance to participate, do it!
I will be a member of the other BRA team – "12 Hearts, 36 Legs, No Brains". And yes, I have an interesting cast of characters in my van. My compadres include Strawberry E, Navy Steve, Speedy Jess, H, and Marathon Leslie. I can't wait.
Go "Half Nuts". Wait – that is almost a catch phrase, isn't it?
Have fun at the Ragnar! I only wished I have a team to run this with 'cause it sounds so amazing!
Go nuts…no wait…Go Half Nuts! Heehee =)
Waiting for reports and pictures! Nice to hear the new job is going well.
I was sitting here thinking.. Why are her legs scary looking or not scary looking..did she forget to shave? LOL Stamp idiot on my forehead!
I am so jealous . . . the Redhead was talking about your team during the run she accompanied me on last weekend. Y'all are going to have SO much fun!! Can't wait to read all about it!
And p.s., I have ALWAYS had a crazy obsession with markers. Even as an adult, I am constantly tempted by those packs of like 680 markers. Not sure what that's all about, but glad to know I'm not alone! 🙂
I want to know how many people were int he class???? Anyway, have fun Crazy Legs!
GO TEAM HALF-NUTS!
Have a great weekend! I'm also running Ragnar this weekend with a bunch of people I don't even know. My friend who asked me to fill in for an injured runner is in the other van. That should be interesting.
Maybe I will you ladies out there! Have fun!
RAGNAR, RAGNAR, RAGNAR!!! I am packed and ready to go (of course I am)!!! 🙂
P.S. I am so excited to see my Boo it's BEEN SO LONG!!!!!!!!! STUPID JOB!!!!!!!!!! (Not stupid cuz it pays ya… stupid cuz it keeps you too busy to focus on the important stuff… ME!) 🙂
