Baker2Vegas 2012: We did it....Our 3rd Challenge Cup Win!

During our celebration dinner at Benihana our Team Captain makes a very special speech.  She thanked the Team for all of their hard work.  She stated win or lose we have created this special bond.  "We are a Family"! 

I remember at one point last night or early this morning :), I shared with one of my Team Mates that each year I always consider not participating in the event.  And each year I continue to participate.  She said the same thing.  As tough as this event is we both decided that in the end we get back so much more from the experience than what we can ever put in.  

I've always believed that the true "character" of a person rises to the surface not in easy times but in the tough challenging times.  If we can go through such a brutal race (120 Miles, 20 Legs, 113 degrees heat, 5,000 elevation, a truck load of rules we have to maneuver and the chaos that occurs out on the road) and in the end still care strongly for each other, then I would have to say that I agree with our Captain's assessment that we have indeed become a "Family". 

So to all my Team 117 Sisters & Brothers, a Huge thank you for the honor of sharing such a memorable experience with you! 


  1. Congratulations to all of you!
