UW told to shape up its grad program Advisor recommends doubling graduate enrollment Diana Miller SPECIAL TO IMPRINT

"CTW's success in undergraduate education, with the world's largest co op program, has eclipsed its graduate program " This is part of an independent review of the graduate studies program which was scheduled to be presentedat senate in October, but has been post poned until November or December Adel Scdra, a former provost at the University of Toronto and new UW dean of engineering, was the reviewer. Sedra visited the university in April 2002 on the in\ itation of Amit Chakma, the VP academic andprov ost at UW. His report also noted that, "there is demand for expandinggraduate enrollment both from within the University and outside," and that 'Waterloo has an obltga tion to increase its output of PhD graduates" to help provide the facultv with what will be needed over the next few years. The difficulties with Waterloo's graduate program, however, are nothing new Graduate enrollment atwaterloo peaked m 1992-93,with 2,200 students and then began the steady decline t o 1,700 students in 1997-98. Realizing that this was a problem, Waterloo's Institutional Planning- Commssion included recommendations to Improve the

cent over the next few years, giving t h e dean of gradu ate studies thc authority of a vice provost and funding everygraduate student at a minimum specified level O n e particularly important issue that Sedra's report addresses is the impending shortage of teaching assistants in 2003 04 TAs are tradition

graduate program in "Building on Accomplishmcnt," a 1997 planning report Among other things, the commission suggested that UW incrcasc graduate enrolment, pur sue the recruitment of international graduate students, dcvclop new grad programs and ensure adequate funding for grad students These recommendations did meet with initial success The Ontario Council on Graduate Studics has recently approved scvcral new mastcr's and PhD programs at Waterlooand proposals for further new programs are currently being prepared Graduate enrolment surpassed its 1992 93 level in the winter 2002 term, with 2,300 students enrolled However, only 10 per cent of studcnts enrolled at UW are in the graduate program which still ranks as one of thc lowest among universities in its class Waterloo still has a long way to go

TheseimprOvements~however~ were only a starting point Adel Sedra was brought 1; ;o help UVI' take the next sfep in improving its graduate program. After on-cam pus research completed over two days in April 2002, he released a report with 18 recommendations regarding Waterloo's graduate department. Some of his recommen dations included declaring graduate studies a priority, increasing graduate enrollm~ntby 80 100 per

Council quorum 'I wo weeks ago, the Feds Students' Council meeting ended

prematurely when they lost quorum, that is, there were too few councillors to conduct the meeting There was some question as to the meeting might be able to continue, despite the fact that under thc Feds' own rules there were not enough people to properly make decisions Certainly it might be natural to u ant to continue a meeting in that situa tion because otherwise your work might be hindered I Iey, it might not make a difference But if that is true, then why ic a rule like this made m the first place? Quorum should be defined as the minimum number a group requires toproper11 make decisions If an assembly is not normally mccting quorum, one should lookat attendance before looking at the requirements of quorum Perhaps it is set unreasonably high If so, then change it and abide by the new rule Sometmes mlec are unreasonable and should not or can not be accommodated They should not, however, be disregarded on the great frivolity of mere w h m

General meeting There were problems at the beds annual general meeting on October 23,2002 The annual general meetingic where mem bers, U\\lns students, can exercise their,authorityover the Feds organization The president presents financial statements and the members can change bylaws and elect the directors of the organwation A problem arose at that meeting because the choosing of an auditor, who mould audit the Feds' financial statements, was not on the agenda. Feds VP education, Ryan

O'Connor, voiced opposition to the members considering it because it was not part of the notice of the meeting. He said that it was against the Corporations Act to add busincss for which there had been no notice. He did not cite the restriction section that said this and after the meeting said that his comment a as based on his own interpretation At the meeting, the members did not appoint a new auditor and were told that the board o f directors would appoint the auditor he Corporations Act states that anotice consists of the time and the place of the meeting, which suggests that considering appornting an auditor at the general meeting would not be against the law ac O'Connor statcd The act also says that if an auditor is not appointed at the meeting, then the auditor from the previous year will continue in office So the Feds prevented the members from doing what, under law, they could do and tried to have the board of directors decide what didn't need to be decided Further more, they attempted to take a decision out of the hands of members Thc auditor checks the validity of financial statements that are created under the administration of the board and the executive, the decision of whom to choose should remain with the members, who are the ultimate authority in the organization The Fcds bylaws however require the publishing, along with notice, of motions and business to be concidered, which might be the requirement O'Connorasserted about the Corporations Act Thuc is the importance of Lnowmg the rules and looking them up if you do not know them

November 1 marks the mid-year point for the current Feds executive and over the next four weeks we will be examining various issues and how the Feds have dealt with them this year.

'l'he failure to report bus pass aild ticket revenue on the front page of the Federation of Students' general office budget that was discovered in July by Ryan Chen-\Yring has been corrected and the funds factored into the Feds' operating budget for 7002-2003.

The revenue not reported included GK'T tickets, GRT passes, and Iicd Bus tickets. The Fed Bus, a non-profit ren-

discounted if not dismissed My problemwith Lee-Wudnck's argument is both theoretical and concrete From amattcr ofinformation, Lee-Wudrickhas the facts wrong on a number of issues Firstly students pay 35 per cent of their total education costs (as set out in the Tories blueprint in the 1999 clcction) and at many utmersi ties pay as much as 41 per cent The other myth is that 65 per cent is beingpatd by the taxpaT cr In fact, an increasingproportion of univ er sitv operating budgets are provided by third party o r p ~ a t i o n s , indiwduals and corporations 50 much so, in fact, that the Council of Ontario Lniversitieswas forced to altcr its definition of a public institution as L X O \%asnow- morc than 50 per ccnt p n ately ~ funded In addition, e q p e e r s , computer scientistsand other deregulated students are not "subsidizing" other programs in the wav that LeeWudrick says Fifty per cent of tuition mcreases (after student hancialaid set aside) are kept within the faculty,whilc 20 per cent arc sent to the "centre" and are spread across the university and 30 per cent go to student bursaries, helping students mall faculties However, as the deregulated programs have the highest costs, they end up largely subsidizing

themselveswhile other faculties contribute more The theoretical problems with Lee-Wudnck's claimsare more complex They stem from a genuine phlosophical divide with not just 1.e~-Wudrickbutmoregenerally with the historical liberal argument morc generally The complexity arises out of the difficulty of justifying social provision\ when, as Lee-Wudnck points out, the benefits are diffuse,abstract and often difficult to measure This point is probably best expressed by Canadianblichael lgnatieff inhis text, The Needs of Strmgers "Rights language offers a rich vernacularfor the claims an mdividual mav m&e on or against the collectivay,but i t is relativelj impoverished as a means of expressing individuals' needsforthe collectivity " Flowever, this does not make them disappear Education is also a public good butmot lust only because we say it is so kducation is a pubhc good because it has become an ironic means by which we can Further enhance our freedom as a societvbvensuringa relative equahty of opportunity As Ipaticff contmues, "It has been in order to equalize everyone's chancesat a free hfc that the state now meets needs See EDUCATION, page 9

Unions have a great run but not for long CITY OFF THE HILL As you probably know, the K L U staff associationis on strike. The . main cause for this strike stemmed from staff fears oxrera clause that would allow for the contracttng out of jobs. This isn't unusual, as most strikes today are about issues such as lob security and salaries. This shouldn't surprise anyone, considering how far we've come bcnvceil Dickens and dotxom. There is, however, a loomng threat to the continued success of unions - their own continued successes A sad truth of our current economic system is that there are milhons of people wtlling to sew together Nike shoes for pennies, not dollars, and to do it in duilgeons as aell So long as this is the case, d l be difficult for a seamstress in Mor~trealto make 10 an hour sewing together shoes.

Italso forces the work force to gam skills (notice how university ei~rollmentis always climbing). Highly skilled labourers (such as many uiarersity graduates) arc much less likely to join unions, as professionals tend to go by the market rate oi work for upstart voung companies that have never had a union It's no surprise that union membership is on a sharp declme, kept buo) ant largely bv the public sector,mhere thegovernment has n o competition to undercut it Because of this, we need to move away from protectionist measures such as tanffs, quotas and uiuons in order to focus on education As for you, I'd recom mend that you finish your degree and hope yo11 never need to re11 on a union, because within uur lifetimes that safety net will disappear.

People killing people with guns

YOU! OFF M Y PLANET Chris Edey's column last weck certainly got a few things right: guns s e e n to be pretq popular these days. First, a spiper terrorizes the Kashington area fur weeks wtth a series of random single-shot murders. Last weekend, the .I*oronto club circuit leal-es four dead from gun-related homicides. O n Monday, at the Lnivcrsity of Arimna, four people were Idled, also with bullets. \Yell, alright then. \\by not just bar1 the lot of them? For a safer, better, kinder; gentler world and all that jazz. KXy, indeed. Kecause, as lefties like to say to me all the time, it's not that simple. Let me prehcc the points I'm about to make ~vitha little disclaimer: I don't Itke gutls. They - direct experience scare me. I$only with a gun mas on an army base in Cambodia last !ear, where I paid for the privilege of thirty rounds on an AIC-47 (only$20, I:.S. currency only). Suffice to say that el-entually the n ~ s wears h off, leax-ing one to ponder what it feels like to be on the recei~ingendof t h o s e ~ o n densed metal bits tra\~llingat a

about little 'l'immy blowing his brains out because dadd! forgot to lock the nightstand drawer. If guns were banned, l'immy mould still be alive today. Now switch sides: a wife who is beaten to death by her abusire, alcoholic husband. If she'd had a 'gun to defend herself, she'd still be alive today. Obvious strLkes against each side are routinely ignored. The pro-gun lobby shrugs off gun deaths caused through human stupidity and igmrance and in cases where a proliferation of guns clearl) raised the stakes, m a k q othenvise small incidents life or death scenarios -road rage killings, for example. The anti-gun lobby, more pacifistlcally but also more naively, assumes that keepiiig guns out of the hands of Iawab~dingcitizens mill somehow make for safer streets - so that criminals who, go figure, didn't acquire their firearms IcpllJ-,can have even easier ptckings on the noxv-disarmed citizenry. I'll never be one to tell another human being they don't have a right to defend themsclvcs in the face of death, but I will say it's reasonable that we all know who's packing heat. Which is why I'm half-agrccii~gwith what Mr. Edey

said last week: that government should require gun registration, sax-e for criminals com.tcted of violent crimc and the mentally derailgcd (I guess n u bang-baiig for me, then). 'l'here are two reasons for this. First, the pro-gun argument that a hcavil~r-aimedsociety makes fora safer society is onl) true if p n owners k n m how to NW /11tm. Stmply haring them lying around doesn't guarantee omncrs know how to use them properly, which puts pcoplc at even greater nsk. So attaching restrictions to ownership t h a t you p r o w you know horn to use a <gun is n o different than requiring youget a driver's hcence before you're allowed to operate a vehicle. (For my libertarian friends, don't worry; we could always printize the hhntstry of Gum, and Transport while we're at it!) Secondlj-,we need tokeep track of guns without interfering with people's rights to defend themselves. In Canada, most of us don't think often about guns and see little ilccd for them because we don't feel unsafe. But our respective in& d u a l perceptioils of safety-nqja big strong male might feel safe where a petite woman wouldn't and it 1s unfair to prohibit the more vulncrablc in society fromprotecting themsclvcs. In the end, a really is people. who hll people. The problem is, sometimes they do it with guns. -

Don't touch me in public

UNDEFEATED Since the b~rthof Yndefcated, a number of people hare referred to me as the "most out ga) person o n campus " I suppose that might be true. This column has certainly provided me with an odd sense of celebrity status on this campus. Not surprisingly, I think that people are somewhat fascinated by a wellspoken,pioud, socially comfortable homosewal \\ell spoken and proud T may be, but T reall! can't call ml self "socially relaxed " T do nut h s s in pubhc, I often tntroducc myself as my b o friend's ~ "friend" and a , seems as though the Pride parade ts the only situation in wh~chI feel comfortable enough to hold my bovfrimd'a hand T o me, that doesn't sound very socially com fortablc I'or this reason, I cai~not call myself the "most out gal person on campus " Just last weekend I spent a splendid er-ening out on the to\\ n 1% ith my sigmficant other K c e n p j ed a delicious dinner at Kelsey's (eat your heart out Kourtncy Short') before heading o\ er to the m o v m to watch 'The Ring," a mowc that confused me more than (:anadian politics. Most definitely, tt was a great erening; howel-er. it sen-ed to me as a definite reminder of how uncomfortable 1 am with public acts of affection. At dinner we both toyed with the idea of holding hands at the table a i d I could onlj- laugh at his someu-hat teasing need to kiss me tn the middle of the restmrant

In general, our adx-anccsto one anotherwere unsuccessful. Thenat the mories T waited until the lights meilt d o w i to make an?-sort of physical contact with lum. Still, we were uncom fortablc. FTappilj-,T am not the only one that is uneasy with public acts of affection; my boy friend is just as subtle as T am. '1hat's really importarit to me. T h s of course is a very scnsi tire topic for me. T feel as though T am a hypocrite and perhaps my readers do too. How cat1 the uni~ersity's sole writer of a gay column, who speaks ofacceptance andtdcrancc and pride, be afraid of showing that he too is in a loving, committed relationship? \\'ell, my answer to that I\-ould be, "I just am." I don't want to be stared at. I don't want to be glared at. Yes, I want to show my bo!;frtend how 1 feel about him, but not if it means that we are . going to be called "fagotsn from a passingvehicle. And yes, unformnately university students still do that sort of thing. I think that the most incorrect assumption that people make about gay people is that they just wake up one day and figure it all out. One day they might be straight or sexually ambiguous a i d the ilcst they are ani~ouncingtheir homosexuality from a rooftop and making-out in the streets. Rather, being gay is a process; I cannot stress that enough. And whtle T, Aaron Crxvan, have become comfortable enough with whom I am to share it in the mass media, I am not yet comfortable enough to share it with random people in the outside world. Perhaps that nil1 be my next step. For now the "most out p y person on campus" will have to sta!. closeted, as far as public displays ofaffectionare concermd.

Conquering the world through kev chains

ESSENTIAL INSANITY In the middle of co-op season, when all the suits are out and polishing up their mating calls, I'm very careful about where I stand. Never smackin the centre of sidewallrs, lest a tardy bird (yes, they are the overlooked cousins of the early bird) is plowing her way to Needles Hall, everythingslower be damned. Never in the path of anyone carryingsomethingleather. Never in line before someone who is in an "interview trance," that is, nodding and smiling, lest they tap me on the shoulder and gix-e me examples of their flexibilityand resourcefulness. However, despite having to shift my eyes back and forth like a nervous squirrel near the 101, something does get me through coop season. At first I couldn't think of what that something was. Night after night 1 tossed and turned, racking my brain. \Tas it the shmp

shoes? The smiling-induced hvitchiness?The pinstripes? After much deliberation, I have pinpointed the exact whereabouts of this source of strength. The key lies in apile of brightly-colouredplastic on my bedroom floor. One: a translucent turquoise beach ball. Two: a squishyyellow construction-hat-shaped stressrelieving object. 'l'hree: autility keychain. Four (my personal favorite):a retractablebrush, pocket-skd. Ah, the curiously joyful world of swag. After a 20-minute session of trying not to cowcr too obviously, nothing makes me feel lighter than a half asleep mtemiewcr handmgme a retractable brush It's like the "15 per cent more" sticker ona jar of vegetable oil, or the baker's dozen or, dare I say, Aunt Jemima's smile It's proof that someone, somewhere, toiling away in a ghastly-lit cubicle, had a flash of inspiration, a moment of levity and thought, 'Trow, a beach ball will do it1 That's what this company needs!" Silly swag is a proof of humanity. After all, no infallible, well-oiled machine (the facade ofa corporation) would allow somedung as frivolousas stress-relievingconstruction hat to escape. An infallible, well-oiled machme would probably

grab it with one of its claws, and tear it to shreds. It would think, "Squishy yellow coi~stn~ction hat? Palm-sized? Kidiculous!" It would thmk, "There is no logical reason forgiving students a retractable brush. None at all." Poor machine. It suffers from a lack of imagination. It will never llave an appreciation of the absurd.

Bring: focus and balance with an ancignt eastern discipline

FINDING BALANCE Yoga, you might be interested to know, is the oldest physical discipline in existence.Though the exact origins are unknown, it is thought be at least five thousand years old. The word.~o~a has its roots in ancient Sansknt and means "to merge, jom, or unite." Yoga is anexercise~thatcentres on the belief that the mmd, body and breath are all rnterconnected.Through movement, breath, posture, relaxation and meditation, yqa strives to establish harmony and balance within the body and mmd. Sound like something you could use? \Yell, this week, let's look at some basic yoga postures you can try in your dorm room ~vithoutthe risk of getting stuck m a pretzel. First off, you need to take a deep breath. Close your eyes, sit comfortably on the floor or in a chair, straighten your back, relax pour arms and exhale from your diaphragm. You will know that your breathingis correctwhcn your chest does not move b r e a t h i n g should come from low down In

your belly. The trick to yoga breathing is to hold the breath for about five seconds after inhalation. Dunng those seconds, focus on relaxing every part of your body. Now, breathe out while visualizing a wave of relaxation from the top of your head to the bottom of your feet. Doesn't that feel good? Now let's try some more complicated yogic e~ercises. The first one is called thc upward dog Tie on your belly with toes pointing out, palms under your shoulders, elbows bent and fingers pointing straight forward. Now, as you inhale, press down with your hands to arch your back upwards while keeping your feet on the ground. Bend as far back as is comfortable, making your spine curve into a "C" shape. FTold this position, breathc out and repeat Another great, simple yoga position is called the side warrior. '1'0 do this one, stand with your arms out and vour feet apart as though you were doing a jumping jack. Now turn your right foot out and lean to the r~ghtside so that your knee is at 90 degrees. Keeping your spine straight, put your right hand on your hght knee and stretch your left arm upwards m the direction of your spine Keep going until you are looking upwards Now breathe

. Another position you can try is called the bridge pose where you lie on your backwith your knees bent and your feet brought all the way in to your body. Keep your arms stretched towards your fect and pressed against the floor. Now push your hips upwards until your body makes a bridge shape. I Iold this position for a minute or so and keep breathing and focused. Now, exhaling, come down gradually. Try these positions out at home and 1'11 bet that you will feel more relaxed afterwards. '17heyare a perfect exercise to dowhen you arc frustrated with studying. If you are interested, you can learn more about yoga on the Internet or through the one of the many books ax-ailable in the library. Peace.

Coach Tom IGeswctter s a d that he is "optimistic for this tournament" and fccls that t h s tournament has a wide open field. He seemed very

happy about the team's recent success and hopes that it will carry ox-er into this weekend. There will be some tough competition though, so the Karriors will haw to play\vell. S e x n o h e r teams from Ontario, Silskatclicwan, Alberta and the cast coast mill be play~ngfor the coveted Naismith Classic talc. Among them mdl be the \K'cstcril Pvlustangs.

After finishing last year with a 2.17 record, ranking as high as fifth in (:anadz and losing t h e ~ provincial r championships to L a d , they !ook to be serious contenders. The I Iuskies, a team from Saskatchewan, will be competing. They h a w a 2-1 pre-

season record. The I Iusliles have a good perimeter game and fin~slied sccoi~din the Mountaiil Conference last year to the number one ranlied team 111 the country, Unirers~tyof Alberta. Our horneto\vn fix-als, the Golden IIawks wrll also be there. And last but not least, Kpersrm [Jillvcrsih- will be looking to snatch the gildcd trophy. All these teams have a good shot at mmiiing the Naismith this year. The \Yarriors in particular are pla) ing with confidence after a win over the

wcckcnd and may be able to upset strongcr teams like \Yestern and h4cGi11. In order to do this, though, Grahamlarman, \K'aterloo's leading scorer, needs to be healthy.

Schedule of games

In 1968 a traditionwas startedwhen the Naismith Classicbeganhere at thc University ofWaterloo. It originated under the title of thcTip-offTournamcnt but was quickly renamed. 'l'he name change was the idea of Mike L a d l e , the coachat the time. The tournamcnt is named after James Naismith, the man who created basketball. Originally the game ofbasketballwasplayedusingpeach baskets asnets,whichcaused the play to be fairly slow because erery time a shot was made a ladder would haw to be erected and the ball picked out manually. This process was oftcn recreated at halftime dunng the early years of the Naismithclassic.Abeard and glasses would be worn by a volunteer pretending to be Naismith and the original game would be reenacted. This was just one of the halftune shows that have happened duringthe tournament overthe years. Other showshave includedthe b&fcase drill team that would come in wearing suits and tics, Frisbee tricksters and crowd participation games. The real charm of this tournament lies in the quality of organizatton and play. l'he Naismith tournament has always included eight teams each year. It began as a two-day tournament; however in order for the teams to play all of the necessary games, thc semi-finaland the championship game had to be played on the same day. At this level ofplay, the risk of injury was greatly increased whm more thanonegarnewas played d d y . Because of thts the tournament formatwas altered to become a threeday event. Now each team plays a maximum of one game per day.

'The three-day format allows for teams tocome fromalloverthe country to play. Often two-day tournaments are too es~ensiveto be cotisidcredwortli~vhilcwhentravel costs arc factored in. 'l'he Natsmith is an invitanoid tournament,u-hichallows the organizers tochoose teamsat their discretion. Often the teamsarechosen because of the high caliber ofplayiilg quality,however tf the Waterloo team isinterestedtn competmgina specific

Naismith showing off. tournament being hosted by a school, then often the teamaffihatedwith that school will be invited. The men's basketball coach,Tom I<ieswctter, has attended every Naismith tournament that has been held at K'aterloo. For five years he playedonthe teamand forthepast 11 years he has been the coach. He helieves the Naismithis among the "premier pre-season tournament~,"because of the quality of the games, teams and coverageare phenomenal. His oponisbacked by that of former player Sean Van Koughnettwho said that the Naismithis the "best tournament in Canada." Clapping until the Warriors make their firstbasket seems to be a rule here for the crowdat the Waterloo basketballgames. l h s traditionwas started

by Lavallc dumgthe second year of thc Naismith classic and rcmains today Coach ICeswetter says that sometune: such ob~ioussupport of the crowc can be very beneficial and other time, tt can be quite mtimtdatmg. "Some times the minutes start ticking by anc the fans are still clapping. It can tenc to makc us a littlc trigger happ) ti order to get that first basket," s a i l Iaeswetter. Aloiigwith the fans, the band ha been an obvious presence at t111 Naismith tournament. Many olc members come back and play wit1 the band again. Often the band ha, had as many as 30 members here h Homecoming weekend. T a t yea Dave Greenberg, the o r i p a l ban( leader, even came back toplay. Thet enthusiasm and support is greatl! appreciated by the players and coacl alike. TheNaismith tournament is 04 a part (although a large onc) of t h ~ weekend. Other events include thl post game dance, the alumni swin meet, countless reunions and man; other activities, Check out the com plete program of events a even that is not posted on the schedule i the pickup game of basketball playec early Saturdaymorningby some of thi alumni. People simply show up a they choose andagame isplayed,witl one special rule abided by: the oldes players always start the game. There is only one area that coulc have room for improvement durin; this homccomingweekendand thati the presence of more of \.Waterloo' current students. T h s weekend i open to everyone, not just previou alumni and graduates. It sounds lik, it could be anaction-packedweekend so come out and enjoy the festivities

Good food in the raw

1s adventure racing in you? Jason Cagampan SPECIAL TO IMPRINT

h'Iy legs are burning; my heart is pumping so fast it feels like it is going to csplode. I keep tellii~gm> self that if I canmake itup this next hill, things arc gomg to be lust fine. I struggle. I am pedalling in the lowest gear possible and 1 seem to begettingnowherc. Kith e\-ery turn of the pedal, I grow more weary. Ex-ery bend in the path seems to bring another long, steep climb. I curse at this insanity and qucstion my ability to finish this race. As I finally reach the top of the climb I'm momentarily relieved. I feel worn out after the 30-minute climb. I peer down the ski hill and asscss its incline. Realizing this is the only way down, I chuckle silently-pure and complete madness! As I get on my bike, I grip the bars tightly and close my eyes. I just hope I don't go head over heels. This is adventure racing! Ad\-enture racing is a multi-sport race consisting of nax~igation,trekking, paddling, biking and ropc work. It has been slowlygrowingin popularity thanks tomajor coverage of the Eco-challcnge races and to the pure sense of adventure and team work these raccs oEfer. l'his sport encompasses more activities than triathalons and is team-oriented. Race formatsare donempairs, threes and most commonly four-person races, Races can be six to hveh-e hours, 24 to 48 hours, or thc cspcdition length of three to twelve days. ltisa sport that requires physicaland mental toughness as wcll as teainwork skills In September I had an opportu nity to race the Sea2Summit two day stage adventure race in Quebec Sup posedly a good racc for beginners, the two-day stage formatwas oaerwhelming, espectally since I was a rookie. We began on bikes for the -

first leg of the race mhich consisted of approximately 40 to 50 km of biktng. The trails consistedof single track and gravel roads. Much ofthe section was up and down hill which had mc considcringright at the start whether or not I could finish thc race at all. The pcople who competed in this racewere uo focused thatitpierced me with intimidation. Imagine little old' mc competing in a race wtth people who have been doing this for years-itwasunreal. The pace ofthe section was incredible. Tcams flew past at alarming rates over the technical trails. Yet even in the midst of the madness I took time to apprcciate the beauty of my surroundings. The most memorable part of the section was biking over a massive dam, realizing the man-el and beauty of being on top and looking down into agorgeous valley below. Itwas breathtaking and for a moment the whole concept of competition was erascd from mcmory. But I quickly remember what I was here for to racc. Asme began the paddling section of the race, I hoped that this sectlon wouldprovc to be an easier one than the last. N o hills, no sore legs, lust flatwaterpaddling. Unfortunately, what you wish for isnotwhat always happens in real life. A treacherous headwlnd decided to take the canoe where it plcased, making for a rough and long 17 kmpaddle. My partner cursed the wind as we laughed at the difficulties of the section. l'he teains ahead seemed to be experiencing similarproblcms, sharing our pain. We found out later that a handful of teams capsized andmere disqualifed fromthcrace since rescue wasneeded. After a miserable wet paddle, we made it to dry land where our support crew dried us off and garc us hot soup. \Xre didn't stay long. Instead, we quickly assembled to start thc trckktng/ropcs section. -

\X'e decded to trek fast and the hike seemed to take us uphill once more. Aswearrivedatthe first roqe section a traverse multiple teams also arrived, bottlenecking the crossing. The rope section should hal-e been enlopable and painless. 'This n-as my first trawrsc and I looked fonvard to the opportunity ofzipping down alinc. As Iattachcd my harness andgotprepped,a smile lit up my face. My smile slowly dissipated as I zipped down the line and realized that pulling myself across the rest of the waywas proving difficult since my arms felt like lello after the longpaddle. Backon solid ground, we a11 trekked fast to the second ropc s c c t i o n a zip-line. 'l'here was n o pulling on this rope section, so I just sat back and cnjoycd thc ride.Wc pickedup the pace and ran the remainder ofthe section. As we reached our bikes for the final section, we knew that the end was close at hand. The final 20 km on bike seemed to flyby because ofthe darkness and flat roads. \X7emade excellent time untilwe reached the climb into Mt. Stc. Maric. I was exhausted by this pomt and ~t hurt to climb the numerous hills. T observed that 111 the Sea3Summit race, the emphasis is on summit - it was mostly hills. As we wobbled through the finish line I was relieved that the fourteen hour day had ended. Then I remembered that this was onlythc first day Adventure racing is definitely a mental and physical sport. What 1 accomplished in two days was thc espenence ofalifetime. I didn't come in first place or evenwin anything. Ti is the pure enjoyment and satisfaction of finishinga race regardless of rankand time that kceps yougoing. Let's just say, I'll see you at thc starting line. For more information, visit -

Long distance relationships are tough. So tough, m fact, that yours truly is in the don't-even-try camp. If I were going to make an exception, I'd do it playing by your rules 1)Make sure there will be a definite end to your separation -when you graduate 2) Stay connected with a routine of interacting with one another -daily phone calls and annual visas 3) Make a firm commitment to the relationship before separating -get married, like you did 4) Ignore the naysayers. Keep up the good work and don't let your friends get you down. If reading about other people who have bccn there brings you comfort, trv Locznx Yonr I>ong-DzsfanceRdat~ond@by Stephen Blake
