Google's team blog for the Ragnar Relay Northwest Passage
July 20-21st 2012 Google's 6th year at the Ragnar Relay Northwest Passage! This is a two day, 190 mile relay race from the northern tip of Washington in Blaine, through farm country and along the coast, across Deception Pass and finishing at the southern end of Whidbey Island at Langley. This isn't your average team offsite!
One down, two to go! I had a nice scenic leg through downtown Bellingham along the waterfront. The cool breeze coming off the water was just enough to counter the hot afternoon sun. I was motivated to finish as the team was graciously waiting on me for a lunch break, great team spirit! They had a live band and even cold showers at the exchange point. Feels good to have my toughest run behind me. We had a nice lunch and coffee break at Avenue Deli in DT Bellingham and are back on the road and recharged for round 2. Ding! Ding! -Joe
