|At the finish line with my Orange Lederhosen teammates|
Guys who wear lederhosen, especially orange lederhosen, are pretty much guaranteed to be good company.
My race satisfaction has a high rate of correlation with the topography. That is, I'm much happier to be racing when the ground is flat than when we're hiking up and down what feel like 72 degree inclines.
Pain is temporary; running further uphill than Bob is forever.
Adventure racing today, for me:
After we'd been trekking for a while: I can't wait to get on the bikes.
After we'd been biking for a while: I can't wait to get off the bikes!
After we'd been in the canoes for 12.3 seconds: I can't wait to get back on the bikes.
After we were on the bikes again: Yeah, I'm ready to be off this bike. I hope we get to do more trekking.
On the trekking (final) leg: I can't wait till we get to the finish line and get some pizza!
At the finish line: I can't wait to do this again!!!
|When I found out all the pizza was gone.|
Well, until you're actually in the canoe.
