Kelsey is Getting Married…Or why randomly joining a Ragnar team was the best decision ever

When I ended up moving home almost three years ago I remember people talking about Ragnar. I remember talking to people I had met and they all had teams so when an opportunity came up to join a team I said yes. I didn’t actually know anyone on the team. I “knew” a few from twitter, but the rest, not at all. Β Who knew I was going to meet some of the most fun ladies ever. I’ve rambled about this before, but I swear it’s relevant.

I met Kelsey in a hotel room in Madison. It turned out to be the start of many fun adventures.

When you make running friends, it’s easy to end up on running adventures. We ended up all over the country together. Kelsey, Mo and I ventured to St. Louis to run and have a fun weekend. Here we are sightseeing.

I’m pretty sure we all registered for RnR NOLA the day we flew home from St. Louis. If I remember correctly there was an awesome discount because of the Saints kicking ass and RnR had to change their rules after we all registred for a half for something like $30.

Finally made Kelsey visit Wisconsin for Tyranena, one of the best races of the year.

Kelsey and Mo came to visit just for a fun weekend in Milwaukee. We went beer and cheese tasting. It was wonderful.

Next up, Mo and I head to Cleveland to celebrate Kelsey getting married. All of this happened because I joined that first Ragnar team two and half years ago. So really, this one is for you Kelsey. Can’t wait to see you in a few days.
