Great Adventure Challenge

On August 20th, we competed in the 4th annual Great Adventure Challenge.  The race is held at Shawnee Peak in Bridgton and consists of a 2.5 mile kayak in Moose Pond, a 14.5 mile mountain bike ride on local logging roads and snowmobile trails, and a hike to the top of Shawnee Peak and back down again.  This was our third year doing it.  It is definitely a challenge and I am always really nervous at the start, but it really is a fun race.  The proceeds go towards a local organization for adults with disabilities.  
I won my age group and was the fastest overall female this year.  I am still 3 minutes off the course record.  Maybe next year.

Here's the link if you want to check it out.
