Diggin in at World Championships in Portugal

A short note to fill in anyone not following the team at worlds. It looks like a complicated, tough course. I know the ocean swim/surf was treacherous. Just look at Ernie. He's covered in seaweed!!

Jen and Fritz look great on day three. I think I would look dead. Jen is still smiling (?) This team represents the soul of adventure racing. Heart, strength and courage. GO TEAM!!

Ernie's getting serious now. I wouldn't want to be the team in front of him. I think he's going for it ! It's been hard to tell where the team is via the race website, but occassionally a photo pops up from the gallery that I recognize as our guys and girl. And as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. I think this is from the long mtb into the night on day four before or after the 11:00 pm cutoff.
