Getting Ohhhh Soooo Dirty...

In the mud-run....get your mind out of the gutter

sunny 80 °F

Go Pro Mountain Games

Some highlights of a great adventure in Vail.
8 crazy boaters/bikers/adventure lovers in the best apartment the 'Antlers' has to offer, one black lab, one chiwawa and one 'goose', at least 30 bananas, race bib numbers everywhere, 10 jars of face paint, 2 homemade super hero capes, a dozen packets of emergen-c, 3 trips thru the oatmeal mud, 410 points scored by the winning freestyle woman (who was 12yrs old!), one free latte, 4 bags of bear naked granola, snow capped mountains e'rey where.....
A weekend of new friends, laughter and just doing CO right.

Goal: Make it onto the website. #missioncomplete



Our moms all warned us of this as we grew up, our friends warn us of this at some point in college, our coach sees it on the horizon and subtly modifies your training plans.....but still we press on. Afterall, we are invincible right?! Being stationary is just so lame. We decide it is a good idea to do things like toss 'the incline' in the middle of a 90' run,,,after a bike,,,after a race day. And then it happens. The germs invade. Hard. Before you know it, BAM. Sick as a dog. Lost a few quality days of training, slept for 20 out of 24 hours, and consumed at least 20,000mg of vitamin C over the course of 5 days. But, here we are. On the other side. Back to being healthy. Back to the grind, with a renewed appreciation for health, getting enough sleep and listening to your body.
