She Says: We’re down a runner.

My sister just texted me the bad news! Runner number 8 popped her knee and is down for the count. I feel awful for her and hope this was not the result of training too hard with too little notice.

You see, we’ve already had to replace two of our original twelve team members. Runner number 8 was just doing our team a favor, by picking up 3 runs on short call.  The rest of us have been training since April, but #8 jump into the mix only about 6 weeks ago.

I’m sure my sister will call me with the full story tonight, but I hope #8 just needs a little rest and isn’t hurting too bad.

The Ragnar’s Great River Relay starts Friday in Minnesota. With only two days to spare, we are down a runner.

Any volunteers (ehem . . . HE?)
