Saturday my team, the Weeble Wobbles, took fifth place in the all-female division of the Urban Omaha Adventure Race. The race was a blast! I felt like a kid--pedaling my bike for all I was worth up and down hills and around curving residential streets, splashing through puddles and splattering myself with mud, running through a farmer's market, climbing over a fence, walking with a water bottle balanced on my head. I definitely want to do another adventure.
One of my teammates was a strong runner; the other, a strong cyclist. I'm average (bordering on mediocre) at both, but my teammates' abilities brought out the best in me. Here's a shot of us before the race looking fresh and ready to roll. On the left is Sandy, I'm in the middle, and Crystal on the right.
Since it's Monday, I owe you a writing prompt. Today write a scene involving three women of different skill levels working toward a common goal. They could be baking a pie, trying to solve a mystery, doing a top secret special ops mission, finding their way out of the wilderness after a plane crash. Anything! Their adventure is in your hands. Have fun with it.
