It's been a busy week. Last wednesday I did a radio interview on "Hear it Now", a show broadcast on Prairie Public radio. You can listen to the show by clicking here - my segment is at the beginning of the broadcast, right after the news. I discuss ENDracing, adventure racing in general, the upcoming "toughest race in North Dakota" among other things. The same day I had the opportunity to spontaneously decide to travel down to participate in the Minnesota orienteering club's Adventure-O, put on in partnership with Wedali.

It was a great, fast race with a strong emphasis on orienteering. I partnered with Phil, a guy i met an hour prior to the race. Turns out it was a great pairing, and we thought we handily took second place overall (10 minutes behind the first place team - GearJunkie/Yogaslackers. Unfortunately we'd missed a checkpoint during the final orienteering section (we just didn't see it!) - one that would have taken us 3 minutes longer to get. We finished more than an half an hour ahead of the next team, so it's a bummer, but one that is easily let go of. Phil was a great teammate and i'll race with him again.
