Uncle Sam got his hooks into us….. but not for long…… nobody said we had to pay him back right away…… So with that said…. EL Conquistador and EL Shuffler shook the laundry basket and the couch…. and we are off to Orlando on Jun 12 For the Everest Challenge.. A 5k run/obstacles.. and then a scavenger hunt through the animal kingdom for clues to get us to the finish and the AWESOME medal..
WE are doing this race as a team sooooooo if I know these 2 there will be chattering the whole race..hahah….
Race report and pics will follow… stay thirsty my friends..

Expedition Everest.

I guess Uncle Sam could not slow us down for too long.

“A Team” Members Cross Florida…running

30 03 2010

Two black F150’s holding 8 crazy college kids and enough equipment to sustain them for a month, set out to conquer the Sunset to Sunrise relay; a race across Florida from Ft. Myers to Jensen Beach.

Race start: 4:30pm Friday, March 26, 2010. Racers must be at the start 30 minutes prior to designated start time in order to check in.

Team arrival: 4:01. Upon arrival they realize they must’ve seriously overestimated their running abilities and have somehow been placed in the “elite” group. “We are definitely the sandlot team here”, they say. Off to a great start.

Two trucks leapfrogging each other; tackling four legs at time. “This isn’t so bad” they think, “We’re doing good”, until someone does the math and figures out that, at their current pace, they won’t reach the finish until midnight the next night; about 4 hours too late. I wouldn’t call it cheating, I’d call it…making it work. They made up a few hours and were back on track. Trying to follow black and white, blurry, map print outs from exchange point to exchange point in the middle of nowhere at ungodly hours of the night (getting lost approximately 36 times); catching shuteye whenever/wherever possible (on the side of the road, on the tailgate, the toolbox etc.); stopping at every questionable establishment from Ft. Myers to Jensen Beach to use their facilities (bathing and changing in the McDonalds bathroom in Okeechobee at 2am and in Belle Glade at 6am, clogging up the toilet in the one and only gas station outside of Stuart); taking on the elements (stray dogs, snakes, semi trucks, huge cows, massive amounts of mosquitoes, and a group of old drunk people); somehow, 26 hours and 180 miles later, they make it to Jensen Beach and, with a load of teamwork, they cross the finish line, where beer and ziti await them! Despite sleep deprivation, fatigue, muscle cramps, chafing and a near death experience, they’d do it again in a heartbeat!


“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing!”

Where it Started

16 02 2010

Two gents meet in Florida and become great friends. It all starts with Triathlons as the foundation and takes on from there. This site will share our adventures, misadventures and other crazy happenings. We are always open to race suggestions and of course welcome sponsors.  Funny enough one of the two gents always forgets that he really hates to run (or so he says).
