I’ve been doing a good deal of exercise for a while now and a co-worker suggested I try a triathlon. Well, two trips to the pool where my 10 year old lapped me was enough to end that experiment. I’ve always wanted to try an adventure race and took the opportunity.
So, I chatted with my buddy Luke and he was game. We loosely trained for a little over a month and gave it a shot. We decided to try the Terra Firma Sprint Race in Glen Rose Texas. It was pretty tough… 3 mile trail run, 40 minute paddle and 9.5 mile mountain bike. It was probably the most grueling thing I’ve ever done. End the end though, it was a really cool time.
Due to our… um… manliness, We were able to compete in the “clydesdale” division. We finished 3rd place with a time of 2:54:35.
