I'll post the official race report later (this weekend continues to be busy), but briefly I'll say that my experience at Ragnar Northwest Passage was epic. I was surrounded by 11 amazing guys (6 of us per van). We ended up finishing 2nd out of 21 in the Open Men's division, and taking 5th overall out of 208 teams. I was in awe over the times my teammates were throwing down. I knew we had some fast guys in my little Saturday morning running club, but didn't quite realize just how fast some of them were. As I posted on my Facebook page:

I was honored to run with such a high quality group of guys - and I'm not just talking about running abilities (which were AMAZING). It was great to cover 187 miles with you and get to know each of you a little better. Thanks guys!

I'll post the full race report in a few days. The whole experience is still sinking in. On top of that, I'm about to spend a few days away, celebrating my 15th wedding anniversary, so running will have to take a back seat for the time being.


  1. Hi Colin,
    Wow, you guys rocked it! Congrats to you...second place is excellent and 6th place out of 226 teams!?! Impressive stuff! I am so glad that you had fun:) I know a few people that are running in the relay that is coming to Minnesota in August. I might be volunteering at the finish line:)
