The entry deadline for the 24 hour Land Between the Lakes Adventure Race is nearing and we will be one of more than 33 teams from over 20 states already signed up for Bonk Hard Racings newest promotion of misery in paradise. The field includes many nationally ranked teams including Wedali and Eastern Mountain Sports. 10 days and counting. Time to pack up the van....gotta go!

We are in it to win it...OK that may be a little far fetched, but we've got a strong team going down to the LBL in Kentucky early next month. John, Johnny and I will be sharing nav duties while Krista will be hanging on for dear life as she attempts her first 24 hour race. We did team training last weekend and all went well. We did orienteering and biking around Fleming Park for about 4 hours. Krista got a taste of true speed on the bike with a tethered ride on paved roads that reached 40mph at times. Scary stuff for sure. She did an 18 mile run on Saturday before we went out Sunday to Fleming. She's got legs (and nerves) of steel!
I'd like to announce that we will be donating 15% of all Truman Lake Adventure Race entry fees to the Truman Lake Trail Fund. This is a wonderful organization and they have given us all a fantastic gift in the Truman Lake Bike Park and other urban trails around Warsaw, MO.
In an attempt to help out with the economic downturn, I'm dropping the entry fee from $95 to $75 per person till April 1st. We will have a late entry fee of $90 per person for April 1st - 11th. Race registration will be closed after April 11th. In an attempt to save some costs, we will not provide race t-shirts or a pre-race meal at check-in.
