Kim in Slovenia

The next stop for this adventure racing team is Kilamanjaro.

I am looking for teamates to climb Kilamanjaro, along with a missiong trip with XMA. After that it is of course Primal Quest!

Interested?

TODD PHILLIPS

adventure racing teamTodd and I plan to climb Kilamanjaro togther.

Todd is a medical volunteer from Primal Quest's past, chemical weapons inspector, inherent traveler, and the mule of Team Intrepid.

Todd has been involved in Primal Quest since the San Juan's. He has been part of the volunteer crew every year since.

In Utah he helped Kim get through it by taping her feet, and mostly by encouraging words. He was an inspiration during a very rough race. Kim is not the only adventure racing team he has helped. Others seek Todd out to let them know he helped them finish. What an amazing place to be!

Todd will tackle PQ this year himself. He is a talented writer and extremely funny. You'll laugh and maybe even cry as your read his blog. OK maybe not, but certainly you'll be entertained. You'll see what it takes to make it to the starting line of PQ.

Follow Todd as he documents his training mishaps, travel stories, and anything else that crosses his mind as he prepares to compete on Intrepid's adventure racing team in this year's installment of Primal Quest Badlands presented by SPOT.

adventure racing teamTodds first blog post

It is difficult to be witty when staring at a blank, white computer screen. That level of repartee comes from conversations at cocktail parties and is doled out by political pundits. I am just not one of those guys. Now if you want me to explain how I came to try and fill these pages, then that is where the story begins.

It was a dark and stormy night. No, seriously it was. I was sitting in a horse pasture under the medical tent of Primal Quest 2004 in the San Juan Islands, Washington State. I had been working as a medical volunteer for the first time, and I was freezing my proverbial, round, circular orbs of personal affect off when I thought that for once in my life I would love to switch places with those who were, I thought, less fortunate than me; adventure racers.

adventure racing teamThe weather had been brutally uncomfortable for the first three or four days and I was sequestered under a leaking canvas tent, watching Man on Fire with Denzel Washington on my iMac, wrapped in every stitch of clothing I had borrowed to keep warm and basically doing my best at 2 am to be cheerful to those who wanted band-aids.

Kimberly Dunkin

adventure racing teamKim is 40 and married to Phil. They have one son.

She is a part time karate teacher and stay at home mom. She loves competition more than anything and that is why she enjoys being on an adventure racing team.

In fact, she doesn't normally play video games, but was playing the nintendo ds. When asked why?, she realized it was because it keeps up with the records and she is trying to take the #1 spot. If it didn't keep score, she wouldn't play.

Just like growing up you don't play catch. That is boring. It was always burn out.

CANICE HARTE

adventure racing teamCanice is a highly competitive athlete that loves to see the team function well together and succeed. He is always aspiring for the win.

He will be the teams' navigator. He received his training the in the marine core. He was the team leader at 3rd Reconnaissance (1985 to 1989)

After getting out of the Corps he went to school and started competing seriously in Triathlons. He stopped racing because climbing really was his passion. He grew up and lived in the San Francisco Bay Area and had easy access to the Valley and many other climbing areas which kept him busy.

Only after a motorcycle accident did he back off climbing. He then turned his attention to being on an adventure racing team and now paragliding.

We recently were interviewed for a magazine. These were Canice answers that allow you to get to know him a bit.

adventure racing teamI am 41 years old and married to Katy Wang. We have a 23 month old daughter named Penelope and live in Park City, UT. I'm a consummate outdoors person and am hyper competitive.

2. Inspirational Quote

"It's good to hard, but it's hard to be smart"

3. Funny moment

While I was in the Marine Corps I was on a training exercise for a week where we were sleep deprived and fed 1 MRE a day. In the 6 days on the course we had 2 1/2 hour sleep. Towards the end of the training one of our guys thought his food was running away so he started chasing it. Eventually we tackled him and brought him back to reality but I laugh every time I think of that day. As for me, I saw flying pizzas.

4. Worst Injury I was commuting to work on my motorcycle when a steel pipe fell off a contractors truck in front of me. The pipe went through my right knee at 55mph and after a signed waiver to amputate my leg, a week in the hospital, four surgeries and 3 years of rehab all is good to go. Luckily for me my Patella did it's job and absorbed the brunt of the impact, thus saving my femur, tibula and fibula. The patella itself was crushed and part of it had to be removed but they were able to rebuild the rest. The doctors would like to do another surgery but I'm tired of recovering and am having too much fun using my leg.

adventure racing team5. Best wilderness tip:

Climbing Denali with a friend of mine was a great epic trip that I'll always look back on with a big smile.

Favorite Snack/RecipeI love ice cream. If I wasn't racing I would have a banana split and wash it down with a milk shake. then I would go out for some more ice cream. Probably two scoops of chocolate on a sugar cone with chocolate sprinkles.

7. Most useful resource (book, dvd, mentor?)

Mountaineering: The Freedom of the Hills

8. Indispensable item (gear, music?)

Sun glasses. I have blue eyes and they are very sensitive to light.

9. Memorable moment

Too many to list all of them so I'll go with the big ones like the birth of my daughter, my wedding, the loss of my brother to cancer, the first time I was shot at.

10. Mental strategy

Internalize my own weakness and draw strength from those around me. Always pass and don't let yourself get passed and laugh at the absurdity of the moment.
