Say WAA?!!!

Got my WAA (What an Adventure) Ultra gear in for my Moab 240 race in October. I learned my lesson from being exposed (and not in my usual, fun way!) during the course marking where we got stuck in the La Sal Mountains in a sleet storm in shirts and shorts!

So I got a long sleeve ultra carrier shirt, carrier belt, and most importantly: a packable rain jacket. Of course you can’t trust a piece of gear unless you test it out, so it was time to hit the showers!

Sheds like water off a duck’s back!

Oh! Do I make you wet?

All work and no play makes NPE a dull boy!

But NPE knows how to get a workout in just about anywhere 😉

Sinful Sunday

      For sure, it will be my running crowning achievement, hopefully! WAA isn’t cheap and apparently not available in the US, but I got it from a Canadian company trailrunnerstore.com for 40% off on Cyber Monday. The jacket works, but it’s something I hope I never have to use!

      People tend to think me paranoid of sun, I almost always use sun protectant clothing, even gloves. Clothing can be amazing, too! Especially space age stuff that isn’t much warmer than not if you keep it damp. What I wasn’t expecting was snow in a desert, mountains are unpredictable, lesson learned. All the appropriate stuff is required for the race, but we were foolish and didn’t take it for the course marking.

        Elevation is amazing. Lived in Colorado for 5 years. Surprised by how long it would snow into summer and star again in August.
