RDG’s Top 10 – #8 Courtney’s Kick-Off ’15

Year 1 was so special and different aspects of that first race will always be something that be near and dear to my heart. Courtney’s beginning here is really the culmination of a lot of hard work by the team to get ready, a lot of hard work in fundraising, and a ton of nervesContinue reading “RDG’s Top 10 – #8 Courtney’s Kick-Off ’15”

RDG’s Top 10 – #9 – Brandon’s Helmet Run ’15

This still makes me laugh to this day. Brandon had brought a cowboy hat to wear during the race and a lot of people had funny hats. He even brought one of his old football helmets. We were having a blast with the race and I simply thought he’d wear it somewhere along the wayContinue reading “RDG’s Top 10 – #9 – Brandon’s Helmet Run ’15”

Runners Doing Good to Again Run to Benefit NeighborLink Fort Wayne

Why Ragnar?

Why do we run Ragnar Relays to benefit charity?  The answer is because you can’t do epic alone.  It wasn’t always that way though.  In the very beginning, the hope was to prove we could physically pull it off. To the uninitiated, a Ragnar Relay is a 12 person, approximately 200-ish mile relay style race. Continue reading “Why Ragnar?”

Runnin’ Not Walken Update!

Ragnar Registration Day has been one of the most exciting days of the year for me.  It bears with it the promise of adventure.  It’s a feeling both exhilarating and daunting. Sometimes I find myself busting at the seams with exuberance as I’m so ready to hit the road with the teams.  Each year andContinue reading “Runnin’ Not Walken Update!”

Run-Gooder #9 – Michael

It was early 2015.  Team Runnin’ Not Walken had about 8 or 9 of our 12 spots filled.  I reached out to Michael and his two brothers, Adam and Ryan via Facebook to see if he had an interest in joining us on this crazy Ragnar Relay adventure that we were going to be attemptingContinue reading “Run-Gooder #9 – Michael”
