In 2015, Jules got invited to join Team GRRLS for Reebok Ragnar Northwest Passage. This started her Ragnar addiction, and she has reconnected with the team six more times. For her, it’s become a chance to conquer the courses with her “fierce bada** lady gang of female-identified athletes.” This is the story behind her Ragnar Tattoo:
What Ragnar(s) have you run?
When did you get your tattoo?
Oh, I think the line work was completed in July, just after NWP 2016.
What does Ragnar mean to you?
Ragnar brought me my #GRRLS. This is my tribe, my community of empowering women, my bada** lady gang. Ragnars are the BIG events we come together for. We run NWP each year and have begun traveling for one each year. We head back to Napa in 2017, but are eyeing Florida for 2018.
What does your tattoo mean to you?
My She-Ra tattoo embodies POWER–plus a little 80s nostalgia. I’m not one for tattoos that display an overt meaning, so I paid my homage to Ragnar by tweaking her scepter.
What is your favorite moment from any of your Ragnars?
Oh, my goodness! This is tough, but I’d have to say any of the silly deliria that sets in after about hour 20. My GRRL Jessica and “turn off the violins” to Kerri eating ALLLLL the ginger snaps then promptly passing out–these are my favorite moments.
How did you first get involved with Ragnar?
I was invited to join the original GRRLS team in 2015 for NWP. And that’s all she wrote!
What do you do when not running?
High School Special Education Teacher and mom of two young kiddos
When people ask you about your tattoo what do you tell them?
That it hurts. Haha! Yes, this one is slowwwww going. It hurts more than others, which is strange.
