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!

Off to a great start

I decided that my relay legs weren't difficult enough, so I decided to twist my ankle and throw myself to the ground and scrape up my knee just prior to my first leg. Katya has pictures. Okay, so it wasn't exactly planned - we thought we were at the exchange point after Justin's run, and were walking up to wait for Justin when he ran by with no indications of stopping. In my panicked attempt to catch up, not realizing that we were still a quarter mile from the actual exchange, I put on my display of colossal clumsiness. We did manage to make it to the actual exchange in time to do a proper hand off, and fortunately my ankle didn't trouble me on my oh-so-difficult 2.6 mile first leg (but there was a hill! and sun!). It will be interesting to see how the next two 6 mile legs go...
