Yesterday I had a fantastic time teaching the MOMAR 101 course http://www.mindovermountain.com/momar/training/clinics.htm to a keen group of new Adventure Racers at the Comox Lake Dam. We were greeted at the Dam by a serious summer downpour which lasted a couple of hours. Luckily we were warm and dry under the cover of a tend on loan from Extreme Runners-http://www.extremerunners.com/ big thanks to ER for the tent and you special discounts for our participants!
Regardless of the weather the 101 crew showed up with a great who cares about the weather attitude and a desire to learn how to prepare for and complete a MOMAR race. We had a great time discussing training plans, equipment, nutrition, team dynamics and race day time saving tips and tricks. We spent a fair amount of time working on MOMAR navigation and the crew had a chance to practice their skills in the surrounding trails and forest. Great job team! All of the participants have now signed up for 2008 MOMAR races and I am sure they will have a fantastic and fun race!
Next 101 course: Saturday, August 9th 1-5pm
