I attempted my 1st Adventure Race Wednesday night. It was one of those spur of the moment races. Tuesday I found out that I didn't need to meet with my 11-year scout troop on Wednesday night, so I thought it over through out the day and Tuesday night decided to give it a try and sign-up.
I was a bit nervous going into this race as I have never done one before I really didn't know how it was going to go.
Unlike most races, you know the course and what you are going to be doing and how far you will be going, but not with Adventure Racing. They just stated to bring a mountain bike, trail running shoes, and a life jacket and mentioned that we would probably do about 7-10 miles on the bike and about 3-6 mile on foot and their might be a water section involved as well.
You'll have to watch the little video to see how it went:
Results will be posted here (beast race #2, May 14th, Renton) or here when they are available. I won't be surprised to see my name in last place, but it was a lot of fun.
P.S. Men's Retreat
I went with the guys from my church to Ensign Ranch a few weeks ago. We had a lot of fun. There was Mt. Biking at night, MRE's for dinner, capture the flag, shuffle board, lot's of card games, and here is a video clip of Ultimate Ping Pong:
P.P.S: 12 Hour Race Tomorrow
I have my 12 hour trail race tomorrow. Wish me luck I hope to survive and tackle about 40 miles tomorrow. If you don't hear from me, then somebody start a search party please.
