Catching up…and gearing up for 2015. 1

Catching up...and gearing up for 2015.
2015 is  going to be a great year!  Although I’ve missed posting a few events lately, I wanted to start off with 2015! January has started out a little slow, with me being sick more often that not.  I’m really ready to start feeling good again. Earlier in January we did a 6 mile trail ...

Frontier Triathlon 2

Frontier Triathlon
This is a recap of a different kind of triathlon. Run, shoot a rifle, run, shoot a bow and arrow, run.    It was a blast!    It was the day after the relay so we opted for the short course which was 1 mile for each run segment.  Long course was 3 miles for ...

Our first Relay!

Our first Relay!
Whoop whoop!  We participated in our first relay a couple of weeks ago.  It was an incredible experience and a lot different than we expected. It was the Nebraska Market to Market where we started in Omaha and finished in the Haymarket in Lincoln, NE. After a lot of stress and losing members and adding ...

10 hour Adventure Race

10 hour Adventure Race
We did it.  We participated in a 10 hour adventure race.   It was pretty good for 8.  The last 2 were brutal. It was very hot and humid that day.  Like over 100 degrees hot. We were on our way by 5:15 and made it to the starting lake at 6:00 for check in. ...

Night Run – that wouldn’t end

Night Run - that wouldn't end

State Games Adventure Race 1

State Games Adventure Race
Last Saturday we completed another Adventure Race.    As we got into the car to leave we said…how is it so much fun to run through poison ivy, get scratched up from weeds and tree branches, run, bike, swim for 3 hours? We had another great time.  It’s like being a kid on a scavenger ...

Run, Row, Rock and Roll part 2

Run, Row, Rock and Roll part 2
Race day! The alarm went off at 4:30.  Yuck.  I forget how noisy tent camping can be.  We listened to some coyotes during the night and one of us snored.  I’m not saying which one. We pulled on our clothes which consisted of new socks for both of us, and new pants for me.  Which ...

Adventure Racing – the night before

Adventure Racing - the night before
A little over a week ago, Sheri and I did our first ‘big’ adventure race.   It’s summer and all of the usually modes of transportation were included….kayaking, biking, hiking and orienteering. This was RRRR – for Run, Row, Rock and Roll in Fairbury NE.   We had the choice of the Sport Course – ...

Mud Sweat and Beer 1

Mud Sweat and Beer
We did another beer run a week ago, the Mud, Sweat, and Beer trail run.  It would be a lot more fun if I liked beer!!    But I do like the trails, the people, and the atmosphere! This was in Ashland, NE at a golf course with beautiful views of the platte river.   ...

Beer Run recap

Beer Run recap
Last Saturday we did a beer run.  The Lucky Bucket Beer run. It was out at a state park and was on a pretty nice trail.  I thought it was going to be through the wooded dirt trails and wore my trail shoes, but it ended up being on pavement the whole way. It was ...
