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!

Just completed my toughest leg!

Though it's marked easy, it's the toughest to me, 3.9 miles on the road. I haven't ran over 1 mile for one and half years, even on treadmills, not to mention grassy, bumpy road. But I made it! And in time! Our team is still 30 minutes ahead of schedule. Had it not been for the water and cheers from my teammate, I'm sure I won't be able to make it. Go Google Twelve!
When I was passing a house, an unleashed dog kept barking at me and pretended to jump onto me. I was hoping the next runner was right after me so that... But when the next runner passed me later, I really regretted for the thoughts.

Congratulations, Qi!!! Getting dogs to chase us along the legs may not be a bad idea :D But it's all easier from here, woohoo!
