Race for Water!

Ribose recently sent out a team of four brave young souls to conquer the Victoria Peak and the Aberdeen Country Park.

We started out at the Peak Galleria. Our team name was "Watercooler". It had an immediate effect on the weather…​

The brave young souls…​

  1. with 4.5kg of water on their backs! We weren’t allow to drink from it though, otherwise it would defeat the purpose of the event, so we all carried an extra bottle of liquid or two.

Ready to roll!

image

  1. Makes me so proud // I’m gonna shout it out loud…​

Shuffling to the Starting point…​

image

And we’re all eager to capture the moment with our phones.

image

  1. except for Desmond who, I later gathered, was on an important mission to "attack enemy portals".

image

Peter looks down on the first slope of the day. Careful, Peter!

image

Team having a strong start! …​ By the way, anyone seen Desmond?

image

Moments later, a wandering spirit was found, with one hand holding tightly onto a strange device, a device that led to another reality…​

image

Lemmings!image

Another slope taking a sweet sweet revenge on Peter, slowly sapping energy from him. (Later, I heard it worked out to be 30% of his total energy, whatever that means.)

image

As with everything in life, there’re ups…​

image

  1. and then there’re downs.

image

But we all made it to the finish line. Go Team Ribose! (Please don’t ask about our pose. We were tired.)

image

Afterwards, George found a quiet space for meditation. Very zen. (I mean, look at the flowers growing behind him!)

image

And we all went home feeling exhausted, happy, and accomplished. "We should totally do 30km next year."image
