Fun, Race, Urban Dare
Last week I posted about a race called Urban Dare that my wife and I were participating in. It was Saturday and I am proud to say that I did complete the race. I thought that we had a respectable time of just over 3 hours to complete all challenges. I thought that until I found out that the winner completed all in just over 1 hour. WOW that was fast. The race had 8 clues and three dares that had to be completed. It was a lot of fun and I was shocked that my wife and I did not get into any fights or arguments. We really worked well as a team.
One thing that really hindered us was that we did not bring a pen. We had two droid phones, a netbook with a cell card but no simple pen. All the tech in the world could not replace the mighty pen. So if you are going to run the Urban Dare take a pen. We got the clue sheet and sat down and started searching for the answers. We were only stummped on one and that was OK. the biggest flaw was not having a pen so we could write down all of the locations and then map out a good route. We ended up backtracking a little and that killed us.
Over all it was a blast and I think I would do it again. I need to get into better shape though. I was so sore the next day that I got nothing done around the house that I wanted to do. Any way go do it and have a good time.
