Cap City Adventure Challenge Race Report

We were wishing we had pics 'cause it was a doozy like years past. Not as hard as some years, but long. So minus the pics, you'll have to settle for words. And rather than a lengthy report, how about some bullets this time?!

  • Time: 5 hours and 36 minutes
  • Place: 2nd Female Masters (there were only three teams this year)
  • Time on Bus (yes bus!): 45 minutes
  • We ran to start
  • But only ran to the buses on the other side of the Island
  • Buses went to Blue Mtn Parkway and dumped us on the top of the mountain.
  • Ran trail for 6 miles to Fort Hunter.
  • Ran DOWN Robert's Valley Road - Quads are aching today.
  • Launched canoe for a 6-mile paddle to City Island (low water and wind!)
  • Got on bikes and rode the Harrisburg Green belt for 20 miles total
  • Special tests included kicking a shoe in a bucket (all three had to make it); throwing a tire on a tall cone; running through eggs blindfolded (Steph nailed it!), sling-shot and ball (had to catch a ball - HARD!) We teamed up again with another team. Donna and I had the sling down to a science - Steph and the other team caught the balls.
  • More Special tests: swinging from a rope to a wooden platform; but had to figure how to get the rope 6 feet away from us (bungie cord with a helmet attached to it to lynch the rope); cut a 8-1/2 x 11 piece of paper in a single piece big enough for one of our team mates to climb through (without tearing it).
  • Awesome team yet again - Steph and me and Donna have a blast. Steph had her beautiful pink balls on. I wish I had a pic. Our team had balls!
  • I hurt all over today (sunday).

We saw everyone in the canoes. Sally and I kept saying "I wonder if Jill is out there?!"
