About three weeks ago, we picked up an office chair from the office of Quick Left in Boulder. After many hours of @jaredewy drilling at and modifying our chair, the day came to race what has become known as the “office chairIOT” around the streets of Downtown Boulder. We put together a quick gallery of our adventuring around Boulder trying to hunt down clues and beat the other teams. Sadly, we didn’t win… but we immediately made our way to Tahona to eat some tacos and devise a training plan to win next year. Here’s a peek at how we’ll train on race week next year:
Race week training plan:
Monday: Run 26.3 miles (if we get the extra .1 mile in, it’s an ultra marathon, right?).
Tuesday: Study Boulder landmarks on Wikipedia for 14 hours.
Wednesday: Swim 3 miles, bike 109 miles, high five 35 strangers, run along the Cherry Creek path in Denver until we spot some geese.
Thursday: Track day! We’ll do 100 meters sprints, 100 times. We will jog the straights of the track and sprint the curves to improve our office chair handling skills.
Friday: Rest day. Drink an IPA or a margarita.
Saturday: Thumb wrestle for 6 hours. This will help our mental and physical agility.
Sunday: 11 hours of studying Boulder landmarks on Wikipedia and a deep tissue massage.
Now that we’ve shared our training plan for race week next year, here are some photos of our adventures from the 2015 QuickLeft office chair race/scavenger hunt:
