META-Review (or am I lazy?)-Ragnar Wasatch Back

We all started off wearing  Oiselle
singlets for our 1st leg. 
A meta-analysis is a type scientific study that batches the results of multiple studies to look for patterns, similarities and/or differences. It's good for combining the results of smaller studies to get more statistical power (Together we're stronger!). A proper meta-analysis has specific methodology and takes into account some assumptions. 

This is not a proper meta-analysis. This is me being lazy. Hey, I'm recovering! 
Ragnar Wasatch Back is the founding race of the Ragnar series. It is also the most challenging course (Hills! Elevation! Heat!) and the most beautiful. I would definitely run it again. I ran as part of the Oiselle Bird Machine team.

We had a friendly competition with them during the race because a few Oiselle Bird Machine mates are Nuun ambassadors as well & they had their team pre-race dinner at Squatters--the same brewery we went to!)

Of course, typical of laziness. My meta-review may have been more work than just writing one myself. When will I learn?

I will update this post as I find more reports.

  1. LOL! I love your meta review of Ragnar! It is a little overwhelming to think of how to recap such a cool experience, so I don't blame you!
