Ozark Greenways Adventure Race

Boy, was I tired after the race!
...I mean, all that waiting around for the runners to come exhausting!!

The Ozark Greenways Adventure Race was Saturday at the Niangua River Oasis. Co-ed teams basically put their bodies through extreme physical challenges, located out in the woods. They run, canoe, mountain bike, orienteer, and do mystery tests. The challenge can take anywhere from 7 to 13 hours!

It's rough, and in some cases dangerous. Yesterday I heard that a woman appeared to have broken her pelvis after falling OVER her bike several times.

I personally never want to do anything like this, but my boyfriend (Jim) and three more of my co-workers thought it sounded like "fun". I am so proud of them!

Team KY3: Travis Cagle, Sara Sheffield, Jim Van Dillen, Beth Keeling
