Leg 2(5 points): We went for 2 points, maybe 3 if we had time of the bike section. The storms were still raining hard on us and we headed out anyway. Because that just what you do! Got the first point then turned to climb higher and the black cloud above was loud with lighting and thunder. Jay stopped on the trail and said we cant go out in the open prairie or we could be in danger of this lightening.....lets hunker down for a minute and see if it passes soon.....we waited.....waited, under a small bush like tree cover but not really, getting more wet. We waited I bet 10 minutes and then took off, just in time to grab point number 2 & 3 and take the fire road STRAIGHT down behind the TA. Slip and Slide the whole way! DONE!
Came into the finish it stopped raining and we hugged and smiled it was over. Great race for beginners and seasoned racers. Well done, creative, positive atmosphere and still challenging all around. We recommend this race to everyone!
