The picture of Jim is from his participation in the recent  Muddy Buddy team race.  This year, Jim and his partner finished 3rd (out of 30 teams) in their age group, and 55th out of 1100 teams overall!  This is Jim’s team’s best performance ever.  Here’s how the race works: one teammate runs approx. 1.5 miles while other teammate rides mountain bike trail for about 2 miles. The team then completes an obstacle of some sort such as climb a rope wall or walk a balance beam. They then swap what they were doing. One runs and one bikes until they reach the next obstacle. They do this for over 6 mile track and in the end crawl thru a large pool of mud at the end of the race. Extremely fun race and for a great cause. Money goes to the “challenged athletes foundation” (athletes with prosthetics) more information about the charity and the race is located here.
