I dont know when but they updated the course for the upper midwest. The course is totally different now, and all new obstacles, that imho look to be harder than what they had on there before.

after running the one in Minnesota, this one still doesn't look that bad. Ski hills are much worse. You'll discover that the obstacles really aren't terrible. I thought they would take a lot more energy to complete, but they are meant to be tough, not impossible.

I specifically chose to do this one instead of the Minnesota one because I didn't want to run hills. Used to be good at that, not anymore. We were caching the area of the MN event this past week and it about did us in.

Darn, it sucks to get older! When in the world did that happen???

I was hoping they'd dump the net climbing thing. I can probably slog my way through the other stuff okay, but I know my wimpy arms will struggle to hang onto that net until I can get over the top. Oh well.

I am starting to think that this might have been a bad idea. I am in the 10:30 wave tomorrow. I don't think I can help with the carpool idea.

forgot to mention the downside... still waiting to see if they got a pic of me later in the race. I managed to fall off the first obstacle on the way down. my foot was square on the wood, but it was so wet I still fell about 4-5 feet down. landed on my hands and knees... still picking out gravel out of both. when i got to the second obstacle I noticed I had blood from kneecap to sock and today it hurts to open doors
