patagonia expedition race

Video trailer from the 2011 race

Dreaming about adventure while living vicariously through others as they do crazy stuff is often the only catalyst we need to actually take the step to sign up for our own crazy adventure or race.

Lucky for you - amidst all the happenings in the world this week is the running of the 10th anniversay of 'the last wild race' - a 10 day adventure race in the bowels of Patagonia.  My brother Jason, his wife, and a couple of former students of mine are down there racing against some of the nuttiest, baddest a*# folks in the world.  And right now they are right with the leaders and defending champions, a team from England.

Their team is Gear Junkie/Yogaslackers.

Sam Salwei, who some of you met last year during the 24 hour adventure race (he was the dreadlocked videographer) is down there (on team Four Continents) as well.

So as you sit down to your morning cup of coffee make sure to check out their progress.  And dream about your next big adventure (Hint - check out the ENDracing calendar if you can't remember when it is....)
