Ragnar's Del Sol Relay

I know it's my rest week but I can't help but think about the 2008 season.

I've committed to run the Ragnar's Del Sol relay in late February as part of the Fast Running Blog (FRB) team (www.fastrunningblog.com). They finished second in last year's race but they've put together a team this year that should make a serious run at victory and a course record.

I loved the 2007 Hood to Coast relay so much that when the FRB approached me about running on their team for the Del Sol, I couldn't resist.

Ragnar's has four relays they run throughout the country including one they just started this year here in Washington. http://www.ragnarrelay.com/delsol/index.php. They operate much like the Hood to Coast relays do and serve as a great relay opportunity for the myriad teams who get turned away by Hood to Coast each year.

If nothing else, these relays serve as very good back to back to back speed workouts and great prep for the upcoming spring track season. It's also a great opportunity to spend 24 hours with a bunch of freakish runners like myself.

Is your father Dale Sundwall. I knew him when growing up in Portland. I am one of the Ragnar Relay Series founders. I used to see his name in race results but probably haven't seen him for nearly 40 years. Glad to see you are running del Sol. Maybe I'll see you there.
