Race week is here!
In four days I will be running from Cumberland, MD to Washington, DC with 12 friends in the Ragnar Relay.
Our team name is DC Day Drinkers and we are gearing up for a great race. We have 2 vans that will leapfrog the course from 9am on Friday until 2pm-something on Saturday. It should be quite an adventure!
The course maps are here: http://www.ragnarrelay.com/dc/coursemaps
I am runner Nine and will be running a total of 16.3 miles.
Here are maps of the terrain:
Leg One: 8.7 miles (very hard)
Leg Two: 3.2 miles (moderate)
Leg Three: 4.4 miles (easy)
It is going to be a crazy, crazy weekend!

We were late out of Newark taking off. We were half way to the runway wher they discovered that an instrument was not working. We pulled into a parking area and a tech came on board and replaced the bad boy. We took off at 10:45 instead of 9:30. The flight was probably less than 1/2 full. We found out how to take the bus into Barcelona which was 8 euros instead of a cab (35 euros). Unfortunately we missed our departure stop due to not understanding the driver but we had only a slightly longer walk to the hotel which is very nice. We are on the 3rd floor (floor 2). Our room is quite large with 11 foot ceilings, a bath and all we need. Next door we found a nice cafe and had calimari and an open face thinly sliced ham sandwhich and San Miguele beer which was very good. Mommy is sleeping since she could not on the plane. My plane ride was very short with dinner right after takeoff and breakfast shortly before landing when I woke up.
