Well, we did it! Team MRG -- 12 women from Traverse City, Northville, East Lansing and Kalamazoo -- crossed the finish line (all together!) of the first-ever Reebok Ragnar Michigan this past Saturday at the Open Space in downtown Traverse City -- 29 hours and 40 minutes after starting this12-person relay race 200ish miles away in Muskegon. What an adventure! Heather is joined by five of her teammates in re-living this epic running experience. The girls give all the details (well, most of them anyway -- "what happens in the van, stays in the van," after all!) of their two-day trek on the west side of Michigan, on country roads and along the Lake Michigan shoreline. More than 150 teams participated in this inaugural Michigan race. Team MRG talks through the logistics of accomplishing such a feat, and also offers tips,  tricks and reflections on what it was like to be in a van together, cheer one another on (cowbells and lots of "woos!"), run during the night, and complete three different legs of running on little sleep. If you've ever wondered what it would be like to try a Ragnar -- and become a "Ragnarian" -- you'll definitely want to tune into this show. Heather also makes a call-out for listener experiences -- we'd love to share your Ragnar story on an upcoming podcast.
