“What?” You gasp. “You’re not a runner! You hate running!”
It’s true. I do. I’m a kickboxer, not a runner. But I adore my friends, and when one of my best friends from high school invited my husband and I to run with him and his family, I agreed. Also, we’ll be running in Seattle, my old stomping grounds. Also also, I like a challenge and I’m a glutton for punishment.
I set this post to go live just as I’m flying to the coast, most likely with my face pressed to the airplane window in misery and regret. Did I mention that I hate running?
What is Ragnar, you ask? Why, I’m delighted to tell you! It’s a 200 mile long relay race with 11 of your closest friends! You can read about it here. I’m Runner 10 and my husband is Runner 11, if you’d like to look up our legs and route. Three legs apiece. 🙂
But oh, how I love Seattle! It’s the only place in the world that feels like home. Pretty Little Dead Girls: A Novel of Murder and Whimsy is based in Seattle, and much of it takes place in Pike Place Market. I’m hoping to visit there and just enjoy being back for a bit.
Take care, my friends! Wish us luck! I hope to come back to you in one piece. ❤
