In October I had the pleasure of participating in Ragnar Trail McDowell Mountains here in Arizona. I did Ragnar Trail last year as well. Ragnar (road) was my dream race when I started running about two years ago well because there was not a trial option and when I started running I had NO IDEA that trail running existed. This past year I have been able to do the Road for the first time and the Trail for the second. I enjoy the TRAIL a lot more. I love that you are not stuck in a car and that you get to hang out with other running friends who are not on your team. This year was even better then last year! My friends from iRun who were the defending winners were there. Aravaipa Running was challenging iRun and actual won this year. Aravaipia is the running company that has made me fall in love with trail running and the trail running community.
My team as ALWAYS was amazing. I decided to make a video of what I took while I was out at Ragnar. I am already ready to do Ragnar Trail in 2015. I would also love to do other Ragnars in other states.
