Friday Things

From Ragnar's Instagram 

Yep, in exactly one week, I'll be on my way up to Blaine for a little 200 mile relay!  OMG.  The reality is setting in: Will I get cranky on so little (or no) sleep?  Will I pass out from running three times in less than 24 hours?  Will I fall on my face while running with a headlamp (which will be an entirely new experience for me)?  Will I freak out from lack of showering?  I'm guessing the answer will be a resounding NO to all of these questions, and I'm SO SO excited!

Also exciting?

SO MUCH AWESOME going on with Oiselle right now with Project Little Wing, a training group for elite runners in Bend, OR.  This article from Competitor gives a great overview and just fills me with pride to be part of the flock.

"Oiselle is more than just an apparel brand trying to get more women to wear their clothes, even though they’re doing a pretty good job of that too. It’s a passionate, forward-thinking movement that isn’t afraid to take risks, speak out against and generally disrupt the order of the archaic establishment that is the running industry. They’ve encouraged women to feel empowered, energized and enthusiastic about themselves and their chosen sport. As runners, regardless of our gender, ability or experience level (and brand or team affiliations), we would all be better off if we could adopt this line of thinking."

OK, so not quite as exciting, but I'm stoked to have another great raspberry haul for our 3rd annual pickin' and playin' trip to Remlinger Farms today.  So much fun and so many yummy smoothies will be had this summer.

Here's the latest ditty I've added to my playlist, Take You Higher by Goodwill and Hook N Sling.

Happy Weekend!
