Nanette and Dan have been training for longer distance events over the years. Dan has completed some ultra, ultra outings in preparations for UberMan– a challenge that has athletes (or teams) complete the swim from Catalina to Palos Verdes (21 miles), continuing with a bike ride to Death Valley (500 miles) and then a run up to Mount Whitney (135 miles). Yes it is beyond ultra- it is UBER… and he has done each leg of the challenge. The official launch of the event is this October and believe it or not, there are already people signed up for the individual event, as well as one relay team.
In addition to planning events and training- they have also been racing as well. Most recently the Ocean Canyon Ridge Endurance Challenge (OCR) in Gaviota, Santa Barbara- a 9.5 mile paddle, 26 mile run (sand and hills) and a 38 mile mountain bike course. They have done it before- this year Dan completed the paddle and run… and Nanette won the female division- with a time of 11 hours and 38 minutes. Fastest time EVER for a women! Congrats on your accomplishments! For more details on their races and the UberMan event- just ask them (usually 9am class!)
