#129: Napa Valley Ragnar Relay

Melissa and her shopping-cart-of-cool to the rescue!

Fresh of running 205 miles (with 10 other bada** mother runners!), Dimity and Sarah tell the tale of their Ragnar Relay from San Francisco to Napa Valley. They are joined by a teammate from each of their vans, Kelly and Melissa. Kelly hits the nail on the head when she describes the 38-hour relay race as, "a sleepover with my best friends I'd never met before."

During this hour-long podcast, find out what a Honeybucket is - and why Kelly played Candy Crush in one. Then learn why the gals in the team's second van quickly adopted the Minions' motto of, "I was born to be awesome, not perfect." And hear how Sarah's team saved her on a brutal 11.4 section mile of the race.

  1. This podcast was EXACTLY what I needed to keep up with my new training. I was away from running for a few years and feeling sorry for myself for how hard it seemed. After reading about SBS’ long, emotional run in the heat, I am reminded that I am capable of so much more.

  2. Awesome recap! It brought back BAMRR memories of RagnarDC for me hearing about the heat and baggies of ice Team Sarah supported me with. I also will finally forgive myself for the one navigation error I caused the team last year, wrong turns happen and the team made it. Congrats BAMRRS!
