G.I. JANE, HOO-YAH!
Oh. My. God.
And as you will see at the end of this post, I do not in any way mean that vainly or profanely.
Jack tossed out bait for this race and I have SO got to start doing adventure races. Don't know how long it would take to work up to this one but over my racing years
I've watched parts a couple of small adventure races and looked at a couple online and.... I believe this is my next type of challenge. I was wondering what to do next besides/in addition to/ instead of just continuing with Ironman once a year or so and/or moving on to ultra-marathons, double-centuries, cross-continent rides .... one needs a bit of variety, I think. The obstacles, the climbing, the mud, the pain, the defiance (which goes beyond mere determination) ..... wow, Jack! Look at how bizarre a chain of events can get: find a biking buddy who has a hiking buddy, get dropped from a hike, sneak into a triathlon (put up to that one by Nancy), get a flat tire fixed by a homeless guy, hand a couple bucks to a beggar, get a new visitor's comment on my blog, get turned on to a new type of sport and further challenge.
Thanks, hiking group!
Thanks, Sr. Olympics string-pulling lady!
Thanks, homeless guy!!
Thanks, Wal-Mart beggar!!
Thank you, Jack!!
Thank you, God!!
