My Crusher/Crumbler Adventure

Course exploration and design are, for me, the most fun part of putting on an adventure race. Today was no exception.

Around the first turn on my bike, a deer lifts my eyes from the road and consequently I see a magnificent Swallow-tail Kite swooping overhead. In another area, after a nice bike whack on an old “road,” I emerge into an open field–at least a dozen turkey scattered in the short grass in front of me.

Though the day wore on as I explored and mapped and marked possible checkpoints, I still enjoyed the terrain and could look back at those first moments out in the woods–when the day was fresh.

So what if it’s hot–get out in the woods.
