The Real Runners Of Beverly Hills – RAGNAR NAPA VALLEY

Ragnar Relay Napa Valley 2013 – The Real Runners Of Beverly Hills are back for Season Two!

After we completely dominated Hood To Coast last year, we’re up for a different kind of challenge and are doing Ragnar in Napa Valley this weekend.. I have to say that with Jess and Courtney dropping out, our team is in a bit of a shambles, we’re scrambling to find replacements and worst case scenario, our new team captain is going to run two legs.

It’s a disaster already, I can feel it.

However, we’ve managed to squeeze in a couple of training runs together and here is the evidence:

After…. (notice absence of Mr Stringert who bailed after 3 miles)

AndrewCurryLA and I kinda died the top of the hill behind the Beverly Hills Hotel, but the route back is all down hill so we get to sprint it out.

Nike Town Beverly Hills is the best, and hand out all kinds of treats at the end of the run – they’ll even let you borrow a new pair of shoes if you’re interested in trying them out.

These were too narrow for me and I ended up with foot-ache. BUT, they totally coordinated with my running shorts, so I felt chic running down Rodeo Drive in them.

I’m still not sure if the Real Runners are going to be able to pull this race off… more next week!

Any last minute training tips?!
