Initial details on the next big race

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 5:01 pm

So, as I indicated in one of my last posts, I told a lie. I’m sorry. I’m going to Hades, I know this already.

Even after the torn-up legs, bruised knee, and general issues experienced at the Rockstick Challenge, I am indeed doing another Adventure Race. July 16 in Mineral Wells. This race is put on by Steelsports, the same race directors that put on Martin Dies.

I’ll be racing with the Green Achers again, Darin and Jeff, and we’ve found a canoe racing champion named Jerry. Hopefully this will help us tremendously after our difficulties at Rockstick.

This race is being billed at 12-15 hours, so we fully expect to be racing at least 20 hours. The race will include approximately 50 miles of mountain biking, trekking, paddling, skate/scooter/trek, navigation, special tests and a ropes course, including climbing.

Whee! What fun! I know you’re all excited…


  1. Wow! You are hooked on this, aren’t you. You must feel great, though.

  3. Okay, now I see why you drink martinis so much. LOL! I don’t think I’d last an hour on an a challenge like that. Getting muddy is not for me. I need ample supplies of hand lotion and lip balm at ALL TIMES.

    Have fun though! And watch out for your knee!

  4. Martin Dies…please tell me that it’s pronounced Dees…wouldn’t want to do a race if it’s really Dies!

  6. Yep, I’m hooked! The team challenge is so awesome, and time literally flies when you’re having this much fun! It isn’t so bad to get a little dirty…’cause I still clean up nice. 🙂 As long as I can hide the bumps, bruises and scrapes. And no, it is Dies just like it sounds. Named for the state park it’s held at. Martin Dies, Jr. State Park in Jasper TX.
