The team is made up of 12 bloggers, which is going to be a lot of fun. Plus, I won't feel embarrassed when I want to bust out the camera every 6 minutes to document super important stuff. Like snacks. So who have I tricked into running with me? The following ladies:
1- Me! No pressure being the first runner, geez!
2- Danielle @ Happy, Healthy and Strong
3- Lisa @ Because I Can
4- Jill H. @ Run for the Hills

This will be not only my first trip to Colorado, but my first relay race of any kind. We are in the process of getting some sponsors, and Handful was one of the first I thought of. I've already talked about my love for their bras in the past (here) and I'm not shy about it:
So when I got another bra from them a few days ago, I was in heaven. Whoever said that "one handful is enough" was lying to me. Clearly I needed two. Last week I thought I could handle a different sports bra for a long run and got chafed like CRAZY in the chestage area. No pictures because it borders on something you should really have to pay for. Learned by lesson - stick to Handful!
What you can see if this video that Handful put out recently to learn about their bras. Yes, it's an ad- but it's super cute and I like it. It's not the first ad I have watched on repeat online and I'm sure it won't be the last. How they managed to make a sports bra so sexy is beyond me.
Have you ever run a relay like Ragnar? Any advice for training for something like this (or running at high altitudes?)
I've never run a relay of any kind like this. I'm definitely a little worried about elevation but I hope it that training in the GA summer and humidity is at least a little bit helpful.
Any good team name suggestions? We're playing around with a few but haven't settled on anything.
Something about blogging/the web would be neat since we're all bloggers but really anything goes. "Beast Mode" was also a possibility!
