Adventure Racing has become an integral part of my life and has added so much value to what I do on a daily basis. This past weekend I took 3 novice racers, Gerhard, Xuan and Caitlin to experience this same satisfaction of personal accomplishment as I do at every race. The goal was never to compete in the race but to get them over the finish line. There was a nervous feeling in the air as they did not know what to expect. Even-though I told them before the race what to expect, nothing can prepare you for the real thing. I could see it their eyes that they were ready and off we went.
