Ragnar Relay: $4!+ I should have posted

Ok, I swear I am ALMOST done talking about Ragnar. Bear with me.

You know how MTV always does a ‘$4!+ they should have shown’ episode at the end of the Real World season? Oh, I’m the only one who still watches that crap? Hmm… Anyways, we took SO many awesome pictures and there was just no way to fit them all into my recaps so I thought I’d do a ‘$4!+ I should have posted’ post.

These pics remind me of Barney from How I Met Your Mother. Often, people would try to capture candid photos of our group. I think I have camera radar though. And apparently I only have one pose too!

Tossing gummy bears in the air and catching them in your mouth is way tricky. I probably tried like 80 times. One successful attempt was caught on camera. The other successful attempt (ya, I think there were only two) was caught on video. I’ll put it on YouTube and upload the video soon.

We decorated the vans at Nuun headquarters on Thursday night. At this point, most of us hardly knew each other. Oh how fast things change…

Night time come ’round and we start acting like bulls and matadors.

And Kim showed us her serious baton twirling skills! She is so rad.

Megan snapped a few photos of me coming into the finish of my first leg! Photos complete with shot of Honey Buckets.

So there you have it! The $4!+ I should have posted!

We got the right stuff!

Well friends… The time has come to talk all things Ragnar related. I am 11 days away from running what will be the coolest race I have done to date. 12 ladies, 2 vans, 190 miles. Oh yes, it is almost here.

A while ago, we decided on an official team name and I never shared it on here. Since we are sponsored by Nuun, we wanted to incorporate Nuun into the name cleverly. The response was overwhelmingly in favor of the name…

Nuun Kids on the Block!!!

Once the name was decided, it became obvious that was HAD to do 80s attire. Leg warmers, tshirt clips, wayfarer sunglasses, and most importantly NEON! I immediately began browsing Amazon for inspiration and Mr. Postman did not fail me.

Yes, that is a pack of 144 neon jelly bracelets and tshirt clips. BOOM! Oh, but I’m not done…

Neon Wayfarer sunglasses for my whole team and hot pink mesh fingerless gloves. Holy hotness.

However, the best part are our shirts that we had designed!

And of course, mine will be Neon Pink!!! Ridiculously cute, right?!

Now I just have to finish putting together my neon outfits for during the run!

What is a must-have 80s accessory?

Make sure to follow our hash tag #NUUNKOTB from now throughout Ragnar for the most up to date deets on the race!
