More Ragnarite Pictures

There are so many fantastically decorated vans and people running in costumes at Ragnar that I wish I could capture them all.  At the beginning of the race I take more pictures.  As the race wanes on, I don't pull out the camera as often.  Here are some of my favorite pictures.

Ow baby!  I want your body.  
Yes, those are pink camouflage shorts.  Him and his teammate ran in just that.  
(We believe they each had their own pair of shorts but weren't able to confirm that)

Chuck, the kilt clad blue haired van mate,  was giddy being able to not only see snow but throw a snowball.

Yong, our VERY last minute backup runner, managed to catch a lot of Z's

The Wineos.  
The women are the most energetic volunteers and I have been fortunate to capture their enthusiasm for the last three years.

People manage to sleep anywhere they can.  I talked a lot to the Jackalopes at exchange 30.  
I wanted to color their hair blue but they didn't trust me.  I can't imagine why.

Smart man for bring his foam roller

Marianne, me and Alice talk to Mr. Jackalope about his van decorations.  Clear contact paper peels right off the van and allows it to be colorfully decorated.  Ingenious!
Sure I can't color your hair blue? I have some in my hair, it's ok, really!

Ground checkers...what a great idea.

There are things that are wrong and there are things that are terribly wrong. That first picture = terribly wrong.
