You've hear of the Eco Challenge. The adventure race in some 3rd world country cossing 100's of miles on foot, bike, canoe, etc. over many days.
Now there is the Ego Challenge.
Put simply, it is me vs. "Get Primal" Adam.
He is running FANS 24 hour timed race on June 6th, the same day I embark on the Kettle Moraine 100 Mile run.
Who can be the first to reach 100 miles?
* There is a 2 hour gap between start times, so we are going by race clock. Or, add 2 hours to my clock time, and that is equal to Adam's. (If I finish my 100 by 4am, he needs to hit 100 by 6am.)
If that was not enough, you can follow it on Twitter. We will both be "twitting" from user "aharmer". If anything, this will be more real time than the race webcasts. (assuming the crews don't mind texting updates).
I will work with my crew to give live updates, as Adam will be doing the same.
So, not only can you follow one race, you can see how 2 unfold.
Is this cool, or super geeky? I am not sure. I just hope I don't get my butt kicked by more than 4 hours.
