Ragnar NWP: Bird Machine
Ragnar NWP is finally here! I've been really excited to return to Seattle for Ragnar this year, and I leave later today. Last year, team Party Like a Flockstar had a blast, and I can't wait to do it again. This year, our team name is Bird Machine and we have some returning members and some new members to join the fun. I'm switching it up and running in Van 1, Runner 1 this year to see the other half of the course.
Last year's van 2.
Party Like a Flockstar at the finish.
I considered doing a team write-up before the race, but Andrea (Born and Raced in Chicago) and JJ (Oiselle Blog) took care of that with these great posts. Check out each of their blogs for info on our team members and relay tips.
This year we even have a few sponsors who helped us out with gear, and we made some pretty sweet Bird Machine trucker hats using a design by team member Sophia.
Check out who is supporting us, all of which I'm excited about and really do wear or use in real life.
Oiselle provided us with comfy Oiselle raglan slub tees to rock at the finish.
Swiftwick sent the team Aspire Twelves in neon green! Tall compression for the win.
Nuun will be hydrating us with bottles and tabs for the relay.
Picky Bars is feeding us Picky Bars, of course!
Bic Bands sent us super cute orange dot headbands.
Bia Sport (my favorite new watch) sent us relay goodies for eating, water-less showering, and having fun!
I have a very full suitcase. Thank goodness other items were shipped to Seattle...
At this point I'm packed and just waiting on that flight time. Ragnar NWP, here I come!
