In short, a Ragnar Relay is a 200 mile non-stop 12-person relay race, in our case, starting in Madison, Wis. and ending in Chicago June 7-8. (Still confused? See the video from last year at the bottom of this post.) Our team “Drinking Club with a Running Problem” survived last year and has returned under a new name “Booze Crew with Running Shoes.” Are you sensing a theme here?
This year, we are also extremely grateful to be sponsored by Dos Equis and Heineken. While we won’t be enjoying celebratory beverages until the finish line at Montrose Harbor, we will definitely be “staying thirsty” in the blazing sun with little to no sleep. But hey, that’s the fun of it!
Also, a huge shout-out to our unofficial sponsors including all of our volunteers and my sister who made our team yet another spectacular logo. If you’re anxious to follow along what is bound to be a ridiculous 36 hours, here’s your chance:

And to answer your question, yes, we are all insane.
