Janie & Megan & Stupid... A Love Story
Updated: Aug 23, 2019
My partner in crime for the FIRE & ICE ULTRAMARATHON is definitely the best part about this adventure.
This probably won't be exciting to anyone, but I wanted to give proof of the long line of bad-decision-making we come from. ❤️
Megan and I have known each other for over 20 years. We lived in the same neighborhood when our kids were young...her daughters were the first (and only) people to ever call me a princess. To this day, I'm still Princess Janie to them.
So here it is, in all its glory: Megan & Janie & all our stupid.
Hey! Wanna do the world's hardest obstacle course...including swimming through a vat of ice and getting shocked by 10,000-volt wires?
Tough Mudder VA
Hey! Wanna run in a 200-mile relay with 10 other people and sleep in vans, going from Miami to Key West then dance the night away on Duval Street?
Ragnar Key West • Team: "Zombies are Everywhere"
Hey! How about another 200 mile relay, but dancing the night away in Vegas this time!
Ragnar Vegas • Team: "World's Dumbest Road Trip"
Hey! Miami to KW again? Sunshine, vans, 200 miles and dancing all night at the end?
Ragnar Key West • Team: "Cobra Kai"
Hey! I kinda miss those 10,000 volt wires...
Tough Mudder Ohio
Hey! Same race different state?
Ragnar Chicago • Team: "Where'd the Cheese Go?"
Hey, I thought of something! Let's do a 200-mile relay but with only SIX people, instead of TWELVE!!!
Ragnar DC ULTRA • Team: "Fast Girls Have Good Times"
OMG HEY! I know we've never done a triathlon before, but LET'S SIGN UP FOR AN IRONMAN!
2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike, 26.2-mile run...all in one day!
HEY! Marathon in the greatest city in the world. You & me, babe, how about it?
HEY! Let's do an 11-day hike through the Himalayas, at elevations 3x the height of Denver and almost die! You in?
