Primal Quest – Badlands 2009 is UNDERWAY!
Good Morning to all!
A quick breakfast and off in the buses to the start. For the first time, I got to see all the teams and, yes, there are tons of Osprey packs in the race!! Without doubt, the dominant brand for sure, with Salomon and Camelbak a distant second and third, and few Gregory’s and others mixed in.
The drive out to start line took about half an hour in total darkness. As teams milled about and rested, the sun start to paint the eastern sky a light orange and under growing light at 5:38am, the starters pistol blasted off. Team Cordura/Osprey, starting lined up right in front, bolted out of the gate and along with a couple other teams quickly separated themselves from the main pack as the runners all disappeared over a rise in the road. Time to start tracking us on the PQ Leaderboard!! This can easily be accessed through our team website :
or directly on the Primal Quest website:
As of 6:40am, about an hour into the race, we are currently in 5th place!!! Rock on team!
That’s all for now!
