Going Downhill

One April, my sister talked me into running an insane 24-hour relay race called the Ragnar. Twelve of us decided to take on this challenge — a 192-mile trek through the scenic Wasatch Mountains, just east of Salt Lake City.

We were ahead of schedule on all our projects, so I decided to give the troops a well-deserved half-day off. Time for a barbecue!
