Mid August...down time

If you haven't noticed I've been taking some time off. I figure what better way to blog time off than not blog.?.? Anyways there is still a lot going on with the team and its members, as well as friends of DART-nuun. What do you do with your down time??? Here's a picture of my friend chugging syrup in his downtime...ever seen super troopers?

The team just registered for the Upstate Adventure Race. That will be one day after my birthday and a good way to celebrate. Here are the specs:

  • Upstate of South Carolina
  • October 25th, 2008
  • 30 Hours
  • 60 Teams
  • 100 Miles
  • Trekking, Biking, Paddling, Orienteering

It is the last race in the checkpoint tracker series and we are pumped about racing. I've never been to South Carolina and am looking forward to racing it with Glenn and Mari...kick ass.

Got a message today from DARTer Matt Hart, who just finished running the first leg of the Appalachain trail with Karl Meltzer who is attempting the speed record...check out the details of the herculean endeavor HERE. Matt ran with Karl through the state of Maine and mentioned that he should have good weather to get him over Mt. Washington (nastiest place weather wise in the US) and then it will be off to the races after the White Mountains. Exciting stuff...

Just read an awesome report on Gary's blog about crushing his first 100 miler...very impressive to say the least.

Over and out.
