Uh oh...

I am getting the bug again to try something new. I am thinking adventure racing. I still love triathlon and want to train, train, train, and race but there just aren't that many triathlons around here. It is going to be WAY expensive to get to many races this year because of the crazy freakin gas prices so I was looking into branching out and trying other things that are around. Some options might be...

1. Adventure racing (just a couple local ones, but this scene is growing)
2. Mountain biking or cyclo-cross (sorta funny, its definitely more just off road and single track because we definitely do not have mountains anywhere close)
3. More road cycling with a group (Mr KT and I may take on a century this fall)
4. Possibly an 85 mile relay race coming up in August. (The hottest month of the year around these parts.)
5. Xterra style races? (That would be great except there is only one and it is about 4 hours away which defeats the staying close thing.)
5. Any suggestions keeping in mind that this is boring old Nebraska?

I am just looking for some new outdoor activities to add to my growing list. I am sure Mr KT will be glad to hear that I am looking for more things to do. He already thinks I am not home very much. :)

All of the above sound fun!
I tried MTB last summer, I have kind of a love hate relationship with it.

adventure racing does sound like fun - but I gather you have to do a lot to get good at it. no matter- I like a challenge, I bet you do too.

My vote is for an adventure race. I've always wanted to do one of those!

My vote is just move to Colorado. There is plenty to do out here! Plus you guys could hang out with us.

When i looked at what direction i wanted to go for outside fitness, I seriously debated between triathlon and adventure racing. Obviously I chose tri, but i am completely kitted out for AR if I get the new desire or chance to race, I will.

I do incorporate desert runs and MTB in my training...or will as soon as I get back out there.

I think you should do a little freestyle running...=)
