“Bovines With Issues”


Description from puppychick labratbecky: For those of you who know how I roll... My Ragnar relay team of 12 people is running 200 miles from Madison, WI to Chicago, IL this Friday and Saturday. We named our team "Mad Chi Disease--Crazed Holsteins" in honor of Mad-town, Chi-town, and Wisconsin's favorite animal on bad weed. :) Yes, we wear costumes. :) I will try to post pics if we get home alive. It should be a good time. :)

    Thanks, Chickies! It’s fun to be a cow. :) You should see the looks we get–makes it worth it. We have pinneys (vests) with spray painted spots and sweatband/headbands with ears. We also tie on rubber glove udders and add a tail in back and we run in this get-up. We look absolutely ridiculous but that is what these races are all about–having fun, challenging yourself, and bonding with other runners. My knees probably won’t be able to handle any more of these races so I plan to go out with a bang. This will be my 12th relay and I’m getting old. :)

    Asia, take a look at
    There are some videos explaining how these things work and there are far crazier runners than we are. :)
