Adventure Racing Duo


Yesterday my husband and youngest daughter ran a kids adventure race together.  I say ran but an adventure race by it's very name involves more than running.  This one included running, mountain biking, a belly crawl, archery, climbing a rock wall, a sack race, paddling, and scaling a slippery wall.


They attacked the course like seasoned pros.  Razor is, of course, a seasoned pro.  He had in fact competed in a sprint adventure race the day before as part of the same event.  Licious has listened and watched her Dad for nearly ten years talk about and participate in adventure races.  She knew what she was getting into and welcomed the chance to run it with her dad.


That girl.  She can and does do anything she sets her mind to.  Never a question in her mind.  Nary a doubt.  






The race was billed as a two hour race.  My girl and her daddy finished it in under 40 minutes.


Never a question.

Nary a doubt.

I sincerely hope that your daughters know how fortunate they are to share so much with their dad. I'm sure they do. What fun that must have been for those two...am smiling big time looking at the photos. I am sure you are a very proud wife and mother, Dana.

So awesome, what a fantastic experience for them, it's so important and so great for Dads and daughters to have such a strong relationship. The pic of them in the sack-race part of the race brought a little tear to my eye. Cat.
