Team Merrell - 3rd place at Primal Quest!

Well, I am back from a whirl wind 1000km adventure around South Dakota. Our Team placed 3rd in the Primal Quest, after battling it out with Salomon Crested Butte for days. Overall, we had a good race and I enjoyed racing with my new teamates, legendary kiwi racer Neil Jones aka "Jonesy", and Aussie navigator Rob Preston, aka "Rusty". Racing with Team Merrell was a real privledge after competing and racing against them for years. A special thanks to Team captain and AR Queen, Robyn Benincasa for inviting me to step into her spot at the last minute! South Dakota'ins (is that a word??) proved to be extremely hospitable everywhere we went making us feel like rock stars throughout the course. These people were super keen to have the race in their state and help in any way they could.

Now.., back to reality...sigh...

Not sure what's up next, as have decidedto re-naig from the Commonwealth 100km team due to my lack of road miles, and limited recovery time before the Sept 18th event. Feeling good overall though and heading out for my first post race run this afternoon. Definately not done for the season, decision time now....
