Living an entire country apart, we find interesting reasons to reunite. Most of the time it includes running and for a good long while now, we’ve been trying to get it to include a Ragnar Relay Race.
We Chicks also know the importance of Mother tribe support when it comes to running. Note the book that Brooke sent along to Meridith when she began running.
Exhibit R – We Love Ragnar
Okay, well, Cam loves Ragnar. Mer *thinks* she loves Ragnar. Cam starts most conversations with “So, have you heard of Ragnar?” and talks about her Ninja team. A lot. She’s ran six Ragnars. She’s practically an expert, and expertise is always a valuable addition to a team. This makes Mer an expert by proxy.
Because seriously, Cam can’t shut up about Ragnar.
Exhibit A – We’ll bring snacks!
Being moms, we take the role of snack provider very seriously. Cam’s carried cake onto a plane before, don’t think she won’t do it again. You never know what gourmet morsel you’ll find in Mer’s arsenal, but one thing’s for sure, she doesn’t mess around. Chick Jess can attest.
Exhibit G – We’ll make costumes!
With Mer’s imagination and Cam’s sewing machine, we have quite the reputation of running while cute. The best part? We’re shameless! We don’t care what kind of shenanigans you have in store for us, we’ll rock it like a mother. Chick Vic knows what’s up.
Exhibit N – We don’t mind letting other people be in charge!
Mer and Cam are here for the good of the team. We’ll grab that wheel if it’s available! But we’re not above letting someone else drive. Occasionally. We’re never bossy. And we’d never, ever, force people to make videos proclaiming our awesomeness. See, even Mer’s husband Jay says so. (Say it, Jay. SAY IT.)
Exhibit A – We’re musically inclined.
As previously indicated by this post, Cam and Mer have diverse music tastes. You want to rock out? We can jam on the air guitar. You want to spit phat rhymes? We’ll throw down.
Chick Brooke says it best.
