Salomon Adventure Challenge Long Course - Frontenac

Adventure Racing race 12:10:00 [2]

SAC Long course with Bash and Hingo.
Went from a pretty good trek at 4AM in the pouring rain and thunder, to a reasonable bike ride, to a really great longer trek where we moved up to 2nd place overall.
Next we had a fairly decent paddle, but from there we had navigation issues on the Advanced Trek (See Bash's log) . Also medical issues due to heat and I wondered if we'd have to withdraw, but the only way to stop Hingo would be to shoot him, so we kept cooling him and feeding him salt and biked slowly home the last 30km. Oh well, highs and lows. Some fantastic scenery on treks and biking, and the paddling was nice too.

Finished 6th co-ed, probably 10 or 11 overall. My new recumbent's podium streak ends at 5. Still great to be racing with original tree huggers for the first AR this season. I finally get to race with Bash again, and as usual watched her get stronger as the hours ticked by.

Cycling (commute) 51:00 [2]

Easy ride in and back with the wayward Bulletdog. Still a bit tired from the Rogaine, and need to start tapering for the SAC Long course this weekend, so today and tomorrow are it for biking.

Orienteering race (Rogaine) 10:00:00 [1]
shoes: Montrail Hardrock

Day 2 of then NARC. 3Pin and I had a really good start to the night, hitting some very difficult controls well in the dark.
Unfortunately the wheels fell off the bus when we tried to find a "Vegetation Boundary" in the dark, and came at it from 2 totally different bearings. Wasted a couple of hours with no luck.
We then had a 5 min nap and a road hike 'til the sun came up, (Had planned a run) but were still navigating like zombies, and wasted a couple of hours and a huge climb on another missed control. Very frustrating. Jamie was finally able to take a tow so we ran 5km of road to the next section and burned off the frustration.
After that things worked better, and we picked up a fair bit of what was left in our plan.
Ended up with 1470 points, 7th Masters.
Lots of Ontario teams present!
