Adventure Race

I forgot to update about my race from Saturday!! This was my second year to compete in the Women's Adventure Race, benefiting the Young Womens Survival Coallition. This charity supports young women under 40 affected by cancer. It was a huge success once again this year. Very powerful!

I had a new partner this year, Tiesa. She's a good friend and neighbor. Our girls are both going to the 4th grade, and are very close. My partner from last year was there with a new partner as well, so that was nice. We both needed someone closer to our level of fitness, so it worked out great. Anyway, I just got the final results back! Tiesa and I finished 45 out of 192 competitors. We finished in 1 hr. 40 min., which is a huge improvement from last year. Last year we finished in 2 hrs. 5 min. We are thrilled at how well did, but we both already have started our goals for next year. I can't wait to see pictures! Mark and the kids weren't able to come this year, so I didn't have anyone taking pictures. I was kind of bummed about that. There is a company that takes pictures throughout the race of all the competitors, so I know I will have at least a few soon.
