Semi-Wordless Wednesday: Ragnar Relay Edition

Happy Hump Day!! I hope everyone had an awesome weekend and your week is going well.  The first 2 days of this week have been pretty crazy, so I apologize for not posting sooner. :)  This past weekend, I ran the Washington DC Ragnar Relay.  Definitely my favorite race to date!  It was awesome.  We finished in 28:44:16 which put us 17th in our division of 115 teams.  Go us!!!  I was also really happy with my splits for my legs of the race.  First leg- 7.84 miles w/ an average pace of 8:30.  Second leg- 4.78 miles with an average pace of 7:38. Thirds leg 6.82 miles with an average pace of 8:16. And now for the pictures...

Yay for medals that are bottle openers!
Bling for being the 3rd runner and having a crazy mountain to climb

Sweet belt buckle, but it would take up half of my tummy if I actually wore it!
 If you haven't done a relay before, DO IT!!! So much fun! I cannot wait for the next one. Special thanks to my teammates for making my first relay an awesome one. :)
