One of our favorite non-eventing-but-equally-if-not-more-insane events, the Mongol Derby, kicks off today! I can pretty much guarantee you that this is something I’ll never do in my lifetime (unlike our own Leslie Wylie), but I enjoy following along every year and it’s exciting to have it back after a two year COVID postponement.
