Bondi Band+ Ragnar + Vegas = TinaFABulous

When I read Bondi Band asked for bloggers to apply to run Ragnar Vegas, 
I was so excited. I knew I HAD to apply! 
I wear Bondi Bands a lot, am DYING to run a Ragnar ...
Put them together and

Bondi Band + Ragnar + Vegas = TinaFABulous
Sooooo...Why do I belong in VEGAS with Bondi Band's FAB Ragnar team this year? 
Where do I begin....

Several years ago, I was a VERY different person than I am today. I was heavy, unhappy, looking for change. I decided to try something I hadn't done in 20 years. I signed up for a 5km run. And a run class to get my butt in gear. At first it wasn't easy. But I got out there and kept at it, even if it meant sometimes walking not running.
 And despite that initial trepidation, I built up from 5k to 10k runs. 
One Step. One Day. One Mile. AT A TIME.
I worked my butt off. Literally. I ran every chance I could. 
Then in 2011, I thought I could run a half marathon. Now, I have run 25 halfmaras.
I ran after knowledge, peacefulness, and to chase down that elusive pace. 
I ran on road and trails. I ran in the rain, the sleet, the snow. Day or night. 
Throughout the past few years, I have loved wearing my Bondi Band headgear. I found them at a local race expo and have been hooked ever since! I am training for my 3rd Mara (in June!!! eek) and now that Spring is coming my Bondi's are coming back out for runs!
I think you can see I really am a bit of a crazy fan. I do not have a huge collection of Bondi Bands, well, I have a few. Ok. I have a dozen. *shrugs* Is that a problem? I think not!

So Why Ragnar?
It's basically a road trip, a bit of camping combined with a relay.
I am SO DOWN with that. Three things that I love. In a setting that is beyond fantastic!
I'm not afraid of the mileage - and would love to cheer others on too.
And I would be stoked to take on this killer challenge before our winter sets in.

Combine that with a company I think is FAB, it's a perfect match.
I want in on the camraderie. I want in on the terrain. 
I want in on new running friends. 
I want in on the FABULOUSNESS of it all!
Plus, if I may be so bold, 
I think Bondi Band would benefit from some Tina FABulous!

Today when I run or finish a race I am so grateful that I do NOT look like this 
BUT that I look and feel like this

AND THAT I WHY I WANNA BE A PART OF THIS FAB OPPORTUNITY!
I just love the run!
