A Long Hiatus (GodZone)

The race start--I'm on the right at the front pushing the pace.  I led for a while, about 2 minutes in. It didn't last long, but it was fun while it did!

In January of this year my brother and sister in law came over from the states with their family to hang out and race GodZone, a bit expedition adventure race.  W did some training together, bought them a house, and enjoyed the southern hemisphere summer.

GodZone came and went, and for me anyway, it took a lot with it.  I’ve finally escaped from its gravity, however, and the tremendous momentum that it generated in my life has subsided.  Thus, I’m once again interested in adding some of my more pertinent thoughts about wellness to the online landscape (for what it’s worth).

As a first offering, and as a record of what caused that gravity/momentum that became a driving influence in my life for roughly a third of a year, I’ve included a few photos and links to a more timely written recap of the event, courtesy of my awesome sister in law, Chelsey.  It is very much worth the read, has heaps of photos, and a video from the finish line:

In the end we managed 7th place out of 78 teams in our category.

Our team, thanks to some top secret pack-rafting innovations,  was able to claw our way back into the lead an hour into the race for a few more illustrious (and photogenic) moments at the front. After that it was all over.

My feet post race. I was unable to walk for longer than the race took. And unable to run for nearly four times as long.
