Why the Grand Traverse?

We have a pretty aggressive happy-hour session to thank for this lightbulb moment. Swell.

What has been the most difficult part of training?

Eating. Finding a good mix of energy snacks and real food that is still palatable after several hours of touring has been the tricky. Consuming a steady stream of calories is critical to successful training and to completing the race.

What are Team Under Par’s Grand Traverse goals?

In no particular order: survival, finishing in less than 12 hours, and dusting Team DadFit.

What are the team’s strengths?

Strong legs, healthy lungs, and rugged good looks.

Weaknesses?

We both get a bit temperamental in adverse conditions.

What’s the team’s biggest concern about Team Dadfit?

As the old farts already pointed out, old age and treachery.
