Thought is was time to update “ELB Extreme” for the past year (2011).
Here are a few of the extreme events:
Couple’s Laser Tag
We had to do a “couple’s laser tag” tournament before Brother Shawn moved to Hawaii. Brother Shawn and his wife are true snipers.
eLB Pool Tournament
Brother Shawn is the 2011 Pool Shark. He won the eLB Pool Tournament with Brother Andrew finishing a close 2nd and Brother Justin in 3rd.
Ragnar Relay Race: Wasatch Back
Brother Andrew and his wife, Sharlynn, ran on a 12 person team last summer that covered over 190 miles. The Ragnar relay race was from Logan Utah to Park City Utah (over tons of very steep mountains) and lasted just over 30 hours. Each ran 3 different legs of the race and Andrew’s last leg was 4 miles up a 10% grade (from 7,000 to almost 10,000 feet altitude). Sharlynn ran over 20 miles total. Here’s more about the Ragnar Race.
Brother Shawn got tired of the cold and moved to Hawaii (Kauai) for a year. He now enjoys surfing, long-boarding, spear fishing, and most importantly…the warm weather. If you happen to be in Kauai this year make sure you borrow the eLearning Brother’s surfboard for the day. (Free for nice customers)
The Dirty Dash
Brother Andrew, his wife, and his oldest 2 daughters ran the Dirty Dash last summer. It is a race in Midway Utah at a local ski resort. You run through snow machines, climb walls, slide down slip-n-slides, jump in mud pits, and more. Team Scivally finished the race and didn’t loose any kids.
Brother Andrew did the Porcupine Rim trail in Moab for the first time last summer. After his group of 4 had broken brakes, snapped spokes, 7 flats, and a shortage of water, they finally made it home. (no broken bones this time)
ASTD and Universal Studios
While at the ASTD International Conference in Orland the Brothers had a chance to play at Universal Studios. The conference reserved most of the park and there was basically no wait on Jurassic Park, Harry Potter, and other rides. Awesome!
Overall is was a fabulous year and we look forward to 2012!
