First a tip, I was asked by a viewer about starting a podcast for them to watch on their iPod or iPad in their kitchen. I was happy to tell them there is already a podcast RSS feed for every Youtube channel. My RSS link is:
It’s always nice to be able to satisfy a person’s request so quickly.
The second reason for this post was to post a few of the photos from this weekend’s Ragnar Relay Chicago. Ragnar Relay was 198.3 mile relay race from Madison, Wisconsin to Chicago, IL. I joined a team that posted a message on Capital Striders FB page asking for volunteers. The team was eventually called “It’s only a flesh wound,” and I had 3 legs to run – 5.7 miles, 7.1 miles, and 4.9 miles. Running as a team got me running harder and faster than I had in 4 years as to not let my teammates down. It was quite rewarding and fun. My daughter Tasha was our driver, and we stayed remarkably on schedule and not lost while I was the navigator. From Thursday to Saturday, I got a total of 7 hours. Here are some photos from the race:

Congrats to the best team in the world! Results are posted & here are a few stats:
8th out of 200 in our division.
42nd overall out of 419 teams.
Of the 31 teams starting at 10:30am, we took the lead from the start & only one team ever caught us.
111 teams started after us, and only 12 were able to kill us.
The biggest stat of all: 307 teams started between 6:01am and 10:30am… We officially killed a whopping 279 of them!!!! The average start time for the 28 teams we didn’t pass was 7:42am.
