I survived the Cape Cod Ragnar Relay! My team did the 190.2 miles in 33 hours. Feeling much better today after barely being able to walk yesterday. Defiantly one of the hardest things I’ve ever done but also kinda looking forward to next year’s already!
The Ragnar Relay I am running with my coworkers is THIS weekend! As a last push for fundraising I am offering prints to those that donate $5 or more to our cause!
We are running a 190 mile, 30 hour relay from Hull to Provincetown Cape Cod to help the people we serve live longer, healthier lives. (did you know that persons with major mental illness live on average 25 years less than those without?!)

So since I am a masochist, I signed up to run the Ragnar Relay*, May 3-4 in Cape Cod with my co-workers. (*relay teams of 12 runners will cover almost 200 miles in 30 hours running through the night from Hull to Ptown)
- Why are we running?
My co-workers and I service 2,500+ individuals in Massachusetts who experience psychiatric disabilities. This population experiences one of the most significant health disparities in the country, and the data is sobering: persons with major mental illness live lives 25-30 years shorter than those without, often from conditions that are preventable or well managed by healthy living, diet, and exercise. We are running to raise awareness and money to support health initiatives that have the potential to literally add years to the lives of the people I serve, through the work I have committed my professional life and career to.
Please consider making a small donation (every dollar helps!) to our cause and/or sharing/reblogging this post.
