Nordic Race - The Sprint!

Just before we start

Yesterday I ran a very cool race called Nordic Race - The Sprint :-)

I had two great team mates called Sofia and Kim. We ran round together and helped each other around the course (or rather Kim helped us)!

Deeper than I thought

Looks like I enjoyed that one!

More water. I'm glad the sun was shining!

I'm making this look a little too easy......

...what was actually happening behind 'The Walls'

Sliding down an oiled slide was fun :-)

This water was boggy and disgusting!

I loved the climbing wall

Reaching for the bell at the end

Up the hill with a sandbag on my shoulder

This was hard!

Crawling as a team

Barbed wire, dried mud, and wet clothes

Still smiling while wet and muddy

The balance beams were easy thanks to my son Theo training me on them at playgrounds

Oh my god!

Men were shoveling ice into this!

Getting ready to jump into the cold water

So cold! Please help me out Kim!

Meeting the last obstacle together

Fighting these two big guys


Sofia, Kim, and I as proud finishers!

See you next year :-)
