The Adventure Racing Manifesto
If youre not hungry, youre carrying too much food. If youre not thirsty, youre carrying to much water. If you are warm, you have too many clothes. If youre not wet, scratched, and bruised, you took the long way. If you are not frightened, you have too much gear. If you are not tired, youre going too slowly. If you are not drop-down sleepy, youre getting too much rest. And if you finish the race on schedule, it was too easy anyway.
