Team Ragfield had a pretty successful Across The Years race a couple weeks ago. In the 48 hour race Melissa ran 136 miles, while I ran 141. In the 24 hour race 12 year old Will ran 50 miles! Personal bests for everyone. Family total: 328 miles.

I had the good fortune of being selected in the Western States Endurance Run lottery on Saturday, with just a 1% 3% chance. Looks like I’ll be heading to Squaw Valley next June ?‍♂️.

217 total miles for Team Ragfield at #acrosstheyears ?. The Boy (36 miles) far exceeded anyone’s expectations for an 8 year old. @cloth_mother (80+ miles) and @sexyhermit (100+ miles) both struggled a bit more than we would have preferred. It is what it is. Time to rest now.

#happynewyear from #phoenix ? 15 hours into #acrosstheyears @cloth_mother has covered 70 miles and is desperately trying to stay awake ☕️ , while Will covered 36 miles and is probably sleeping better than he’s ever slept before ?.

The Boy just ran his first #halfmarathon in the first 2½ hours of his #acrosstheyears 24 hour race. I think he pushed a little too hard to stay ahead of his mom (who is probably doing a better job at pacing).
