Untamed Virginia. First!

There are no official results yet, but I know we did it: first in prime division. Out of 34 teams only 10 made it all the way through and it was hard. 90+ temperature, 90+ humidity, 10 different disciplines, including plotting maps in a full school bus, when riding on rough country roads and O-course with canoes in a thick forest. Navigation was on the "mission impossible" level as it is usually on Untamed Adventure races.

Thanks to Grant and his crew of volunteers for this great weekend. Thanks to Calleva for support and the best support vehicle. Thanks to all our friends and families for the trail mails. And the biggest THANK to my teammates Sara and Michelle for pushing and pulling and helping me through this challenge. Ladies, you are the best!


  1. Congratulation! Thats really cool!
    The weather was like in a jungle, it was hard just to be outside, not talking about to run. Great, YOU ARE THE BEST!!!

  2. Congrats to Calleva -- any team that crossed the finish line deserves credit, but to win the Premiere division and maintain the pace you all did is a huge accomplishment! I only wish we had more of a party for you at the finish line but we were swamped pulling teams off the course . . .
