Eco Lone Star 12 Hour Adventure Race

We started the race with a 20 minute run that turned into an all out sprint. Of course I'm not quite a sprinter so it sucked for me, but at least was jumped right onto the bikes after that.

Unfortunately within the first 10 minutes, Ross got a flat. Sebas and Shane took to it quickly and got it fixed. We tought that we had gotten our bad luck out of the way...

...But all races don't go smoothly; especially adventure races. Adventure racing is full of the unknown. This time a simple numeral, a digit, a freakin' miscalled/misread/miswritten number is what held us up.

We weren't really supposed to cross this river but we did. We don't know if Sebastian called out the UTM wrong or if Ross wrote it down wrong but either way, it was wrong. So we spent at least an extra hour in the place we had plotted our point only to find that the point was plotted wrong.

The funny thing is that there was another team crossing the river right in front of us which made us feel that we were going the right way. Turned out they had misplotted their point as well. Anyhow, that tiny mistake took lots of time and we ended up racing just to finish instead of racing to place. That really shows how much the navigation means to a race.
