3rd Place in MOMAR – Not bad for begginers

Well, it took us 4 hours and 41 minutes to:

  • kayak the 5km out and back on Shawnigan Lake,
  • Mountain bike through 23km of sometimes really rugged trails around Cobble HIll,
  • Swim across a river to get a check point and then swim with a pool noodle across a quarry for another,
  • And, run about 5km in the forest finding check points for the orienteering section.

We survived, and don’t have any major injuries or pains to go with the survival! And, we were thrilled that we placed 3rd in Co-Ed 2’s and 6th overall for the short course race. Not too bad for our first time. And even more important, for most of the time (except for when we missed a turn going up a hill 1km to lose the lead we had after the kayak section), we had a blast doing it. Bryan and his team that put together MOMAR deserve a lot of credit for an extremely well run race, and for putting on a great dinner and party afterwards.

Now, we’re getting ready for MOMAR Cumberland at the end of September! Maybe we’ll see you there?
