A different kind of tri

A different kind of tri
Well…it was more of a quad really. We ran, tried a slingshot, ran, threw a tomahawk, ran, shot a bow and arrow and then rifle.  It’s one of my favorite events every year. We ran a mile between each event….nice little out and back to get us to the area to shoot.  This was the ...

Feet on the Farm AR

Feet on the Farm AR
I’m a little over due getting this one out.  Which too bad, because my memory starts to go when I wait too long.  :) In June we participated in the first Feet on the Farm Adventure Race starting in West Point, NE.    We got to race with a friend and introduce her to AR. ...

First 24 Hour Adventure Race

First 24 Hour Adventure Race
We did it!  Sort of. This was a rough one from the start.  I felt like a newbie for as prepared as I was.  All I thought about when I packed was 81 degrees.  I didn’t think about the chillier dark night, ticks, and other creepy crawly things. Things to not forget when doing an ...

10 mile Trail Run

10 mile Trail Run
This winter went by fast and we’ve had some excellent spring weather. We have some exciting (tough!) events coming up and I’m all over the map with my training.  I haven’t been able to settle on a good plan.   I’ve been active consistently but need to be more intentional with runs and bike rides. ...

Winter Adventure with my son

Winter Adventure with my son
A couple of weeks ago with our Winter Adventure race.  Sheri and I planned to do the 4 hour course but was sick on race day.  I contemplated racing on my own, but then I asked my son if he wanted to join me.  We dropped down to the 2 hour race for his first ...

February Trail Running

February Trail Running
That was a cold one!  6 mile trail run in a beautiful state park. Who said Nebraska is flat? The ground was frozen  which was a nice change from sloshing around in the mud but did present it’s own challenges in a few places.  But we had fun with it!       Any advice ...

1st Orienteering Event 2016

1st Orienteering Event 2016
2 hours of running through a local State Park finding checkpoints! We felt good.   It was a beautiful day with full sunshine.  Have to love that in the Nebraska winter!  We felt strong on navigation and didn’t have any trouble finding most of the checkpoints.  We slowed down immensely when we got the part ...

January Trail Run

January Trail Run
You never know what you’re going to get running in January.  It’s been 50 degrees and muddy and sometimes it’s cold and snowy. This one started out pretty decent but definitely got colder and cloudier by the end. We did 6 miles.  The trail was pretty icy in patches and I got to use my ...
