3 colours

Hi everyone,
The weekend gone by has been full on with hubby doing the Kokoda challenge.  I've just recovered yesterday from all the running around and lack of sleep during the challenge.  It's amazing to see pics and you tube videos of the challenge from the competitor's point of view and other support crews.  Mud, mud and rivers of mud was in store for everyone.
I managed to buy some gumboots on the morning of the Kokoda and boy am I thankful.  Winning team from last year did the 96kms in just under 12 hrs, with the course slightly changed and more hills and creek crossings.  Our team did it in 24.24 hrs with all 4 coming in.  Out of 345 teams competing only 131 teams came in with the full team of 4.  1380 ppl competed, 893 finished the course.  Our boys came 34th out of the 131 full  teams.  How awesome is that...  I can also say I can fall asleep sitting upright in a car or a deck chair outside waiting for them to come into checkpoint, 4am in the morning...
