30 Days of Awesome - Day 10

Muddy Buddy Training

The Muddy Buddy is a 6-7 mile race for a team of two where each person runs 3 miles and bikes 3 miles in a leap frog fashion. One team member rids while the other runs and at each interval change there is some kind of obstacle. The end of the race requires the teams to crawl through the giant mud pit before crossing the finish line.

With a messed up ankle I was a little concerned about my ability to handle this course but since there is a yet unnamed prize awaiting the victorious Vitalyte Team, I am 100 percent committed to winning.

For those of you that live in the Denver area, come on out and cheer on all the Vitalyte Teams, especially mine. There is a huge party afterwards where you can meet the Vitalyte Teams and assuming the training regiment goes well this week, you can shake hands with the victorious Sarah and Evan.

Saturday was another great day at the lake, at least for the first couple hours before the crowds arrived. My buddy's 30th b-day in lake Powell is coming up in less than 3 weeks and so each run on the lake is a chance to try a new trick or perfect an existing one before the big summer blow out in a real body of water.

Saturday was my opportunity to put a new board in the water and try it out. the Hyperlite Imperial is a 3 stage rocker with a wider middle section is designed to give more pop of the wake and a smoother landing. Unfortunately it was difficult to really get a feel for the board in the ocean like chop of Chatfield. Basically all I succeeded in doing was getting some great wipe out shots.

Samuel Clemens once said "always leave em laughing." In the absence of decent water on a day where far to many boats were on the lake, I find it best to just to follow Sam's words. At the least the people on the boat get a show.

I guess its bag to Muddy Buddy Training.
