I will be writing about the mountain adventure race shortly, but I have to order some ridiculous, embarrassing photos of myself before I can post anything. And believe me, they are both ridiculous and embarrassing. The folks at Met Con Blue haven’t uploaded all of their race photos yet, so I’ll have to wait a few days before I can post them. If the photos I’ve seen so far are any indication, they will be worth the wait.
In the meantime, I thought I should revisit my race goals:
1) Do not get poison ivy. Success! I have to admit that there were several times when I was so tired, muddy and miserable that I forgot to look out for that malevolent little plant, but I managed to evade it in the end. Yay!
2) Finish. I managed this as well.
3) Get a photo with the girls. This is where things broke down. I did get a photo with a few of them, but I missed a few key training buddies. Oh well, I knew this one would be tricky. Wrangling friends for a group photo is challenging at the best of times, let alone when everyone is muddy and miserable and trying to find the beer tent.
I’m pretty pleased with that outcome. To quote Meat Loaf, “Two out of three ain’t bad.”
