Redbirds fly through Power to Play

Gary and Carol participate in Power to Play

Gary Linford and Carol Vincent participated in Power to Play -- a grueling adventure race designed by Redbirds pro bono client and one of the producers of Survivor. It was about 15 km of running between 22 stations; challenges included flipping a tractor tire up a hill, carrying sandbags, orienteering, scaling A-frames, crawling, hitting baseballs, kicking soccer balls, hand-over-hand on a rope strung between two trees, and surviving the mud pit -- twice. Yikes. Our team came in 12th, at 3.5 hours, about 40 minutes after the first team (made of big buff 20-something men) and an hour before the last team. Not too shabby!
