Have you ever reached a point in an adventure (race or not) where getting dirtier/wetter didn't matter any more? Did that feel like despair or freedom?

Yep. Puked all over myself in the middle of one race. (Is that dirtier AND wetter?!? Yuck.) But it poured buckets of rain about 30 minutes later, so I got a nature shower. That was despair, but we finished the race. What I learned - Never change your pre-race meal!

Have you ever mountain biked on a trail at night?

Yep. Lots and lots of fun and not nearly as scary as you might think if you have never tried it.

Have you learned how to use a compass and map to navigate?


Have you participated in an adventure race before? What is interesting to you about AR?

Yes. I enjoy the challenge of the unknown, the thinking aspect of the races, and the team component.

What's your strongest AR discipline - biking, paddling, trekking, ropes, navigation? Your weakest?

Strongest is navigation and strategy. Weakest is ropes.


Been riding and racing for years, started with triathlons, but found AR's and AR training much more fun!
