Ragnar Trail Relay:  Bethany emailed to say that the relay was really fun and she loved it.  She said that each of the 3 trail legs was so different.  One was very technical, with lots of single track switch backs, cliffs and hills.  One was longer and pretty flat.  The last one was short and simple, but with 2 enormous hills to tackle.  Here are a couple of pics that Bethany sent:
