Ragnar Northwest Passage Initial Thoughts

I have been busy packing, unpacking, repacking and making lists of things to pack.  Two days of travel, Ragnar Relay and then one long haul again back home.

Happily the weather conditions look pretty good. Friday highs in the the mid 70s, lows in the mid 50s overnight and Saturday into the low 80s.

Team Beef Montana is slated to start at 9:30 on Friday morning

Leg 11 6.8 miles rated HARD.
Initial thoughts: I am guessing this is rated hard because of the distance?   7 miles is a normal distance for me so I am going to re rate it as moderate. The plan is to take it easy and not use up all my energy since this is my first leg.  Don't get me wrong I still plan to push it, but not go all out.

 Leg 23, 9.8 miles and rated VERY HARD.  This leg is the reason I have been hill training the last 6 weeks,  I am going to agree that it will be very hard, not just for the hill but for the distance too! This will also no doubt be in the dark. 9.8 miles of hills, in the dark.
 Leg 35, 3.8 miles, rated EASY.  Initial thought, YAY it's not even four miles! This will be my first relay where my last leg is not my longest leg! and that makes me happy, especially after running all those hills in the dark!
Edit: meant to post this yesterday, we are now on the road!
