the end of one sports season...

...the beginning of the adventure race season!
today it's a blistering NEGATIVE THREE degrees in chicago as i sit here and type. with wind chill, says, it's negative 22. TWENTY-TWO.
anyway, with WeCeFAR's SmartWool Swamp Stomp only two weeks away, at least some of us get to head down to Florida to check out the offerings of the nation's first-ever entirely green adventure race!
ARFE put together ten commandments of green adventure racing, and we're hoping that this will become a huge trend.
among the ten are commitments to a Leave No Trace seminar, buying enough carbon offsets to negate the carbon "cost" of the race (we use our friends at Atmosclear for this purpose), sustainble-material T-shirts, and sustainable- or recycled-material swag bags.
keep your eyes peeled on this 'blog for more information, and at this web site as it grows. we'll have lots more information soon. thanks for coming to visit!
of course, if you live in Chicago, you don't have to keep your eyes peeled. just go outside. the weather will peel your eyes for you.
