#TeamSparkle Ragnar SoCal - Meet The Team

I have mentioned it a few times, but now it is time for the deets!


I will be running with #TeamSparkle in next month's Ragnar! HOLY CRAPOLY! How is it that in less than month we will be starting the 181 mile journey from Huntington Beach to San Diego?!

Unsure about what Ragnar is, check out this video below (but remember, we will be running it ULTRA style, so instead of 12 runners and 2 vans, we will only have 6 runners and 1 van to cover the entire distance! If you are gonna go, you might as well go BIG, right?!):

So now that you know a little about what the race is, let's meet THE TEAM!

Allison:  Mom of two, who runs for her daughter because Rett Syndrome has stolen her daughter's ability to run & do anything independently. Now Allison runs for her & all the girls who can't, so that someday they will. You can follow her on Instagram at @afoley09.

Elise: She's a Ironman triathlete who's got a BIG sweet tooth. The Cupcake Activist burns calories so she can eat them. Resides in the city of Orange. Author of the blog Cupcake Activist & you can follow her on Twitter at @cupcakeactivist & on Instagram at @elisewallace.

Carrie: Mother of 4 with not enough time to sew, run, thrift, DIY, bike, & crochet... but she sneaks it in anyway. Author of the blog This Mama Makes Stuff & you can follow her on Twitter/ Instagram at @thisiscarrie.

Carlee: This vegetarian, puppy mama started running about 3 years ago and hasn't stopped since. She loves the sun, encouraging others, spending time with her hubby, and all things Michigan (minus the snow, humidity, and cold). If she could find someone to pay her to run, take pictures and blog [] she would be in HEAVEN! You can follow her through life on Twitter/ Instagram at @CarleeMcDot. 

Kristen: This small town Kansas girl, now living in a big city loves all things fitness, but especially running. She finds herself through many miles a week along Lake Michigan while training to complete a half marathon in all 50 states. Her strength comes from cousin Martilee, who fights Rett Syndrome everyday. You can follow her journey on Twitter and Instagram at @kgriff_run.

Casey: Mom of 2 from Las Vegas who likes to run anything from a 5K to 50K. Her other pastimes include CrossFit, wakeboarding, boating with her family, and cycling. You can follow her on Instagram and Twitter at @caseyruns 

Some amazing ladies, right?! I am HONORED to be a part of this team!

And on tap for tomorrow - THE CAUSE! (Just a word of warning, you do NOT want to miss that post!)

Have you ever ran as a part of a relay team?
