Do You Want to Run a Ragnar?

Do You Want to Run a Ragnar?

By Princess Jodi Do you want to run a Ragnar? Doesn’t have to be a Ragnar… It could be any multi-day relay adventure involving teams, vans, sleeping in fields, navigating new places and, of course, running. Lots of running.

Just Do It: Entering the Nike Lottery to Run DC

So this happened last week: Yep, these Princesses on the Run have thrown their names in the hat to run the Nike Women’s Half in DC! This was not in our plans or even on our radar. It just came out of the (Tiffany) blue.
