You ladies had an awesome race! We were so proud of our all-female teams. :))
Yay! It was so fun to see you guys and I thought about you so much during the race!!
Next time, try my new "swamp-crawling" technique. All fours. Makes you feel like a wild animal. Easier on the hips. :)
I love the sounds if swamp crawling...besides, it's probably much more graceful looking too!
Come back and visit soon...like October!
Ugh, I just can't believe I missed this. I think Pete and I will be making a special trip home for this one next year.
You best be doing that!
Ps you sent the best trail mail! Thanks :)
Does that mean you got my last one and specifically disobeyed orders? Ha, well by the sounds of it that hydro cut ride was HORRENDOUS! Good choice.
Such rebels! Only kidding. It wasn't an option at CP 5 or at least I remember saying out loud "we're not getting short coursed" and the lovely volunteer looked at me apologetically and likely thinking in his head "this girl is a dreamer..."
Hope you're enjoying home away from home!
Great job out there. Glad you ladies were the ones to see the rattle snakes. We only saw a pretty deer.
Leanimal it was horrendous, but absolutely my favourite part of the race.
Great job Hermes and the team! Sounds like you gals had a lot of fun, despite less than perfect conditions:)
Awesome job out there but we want to see pics of the hair now.... did you get it all fixed up?
It was exciting following you all and watching the races within the race. Very cool!!
Good to see you had such a good time. And you have enough energy post race to do a 1 hour plus run on tuesday - wow!
You guys did amazing. Great seeing you out there!
Congrats! is your hair tangled?
Glad to see Mrs Tiny went straight to the peatlands. I taught her well. There is a reason my knees are shot working in those ecosystems for 25+ years. We actually use snow shoes without the crampons in some peatlands for our research. Hmmm is that a faster option for AR in those areas?
You guys had the best quote of any teams at CP1. It was super hectic there with most teams coming in close together. Some boats were rammed, some swearing took place too. But then Wonderbroads paddled into the CP all smiles. :-)
So next time Bob goes up that way to design yet another epic course you need to get together with Etoile and take our yaks out to those islands again.
Great work out there Hermes! Always good to see you out there racing!
Really enjoyed seeing the team you girls put together get it done. Of course I am pretty biased about the awesomeness of some of the team members. :)
@ Myka, it didn't feel right without you at WT!
@ Hammer, we totally went that route just so we could make you proud.
Next year, Hermes....if all goes well! :)
