Orienteering race 1:20:00 
Well I really don't know if I should call what I did out there "orienteering!" Since I'm an optimist, I'm gonna say that hopefully this means I got all my stupid mistakes out of my system yesterday rather than next weekend. My first control was definitely an omen when I realized I was looking for it on the wrong side of the trail, but if only I knew things were going to go downhill from there! Of the 16 controls on course, I think I nailed about 2 of them. I'm not sure what was wrong with me but I never really figured out the scale and hadn't been to Claireville before so it was a real comedy of errors. This is the maybe the first time I wished I had a GPS track to share as I think it would result in some good entertainment.
Disastrous orienteering aside, I thought we had lovely weather for this and it was really nice to have an indoor home base for before and after. The temps were perfect and it was fun to run on the icy trails. Also, while my post-race lunch selection disappointed in the beer department (um, if you call yourself a "brewpub," you should really have at least one IPA!), the company was great!
I don't even really know if this is my time. It's an optimistic guess that will likely be proven wrong when the results come out.
Running 50:00 
This morning's treadmill entertainment was this movie about a pro baseball player who decides he wants to run Western States: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/diamondtotherough
Of course he gets in with his first lottery ticket...
I only paid to rent rather than buy this one and was glad for that decision as I don't think it's one I'd watch again, but it was entertaining, so I'd say it's worth the $5.28 to rent if anyone is looking to watch someone new. Lance Armstrong is one of his pacers.
I have a weird hopefully not PF right heel pain going on right now that is definitely less aggravated on the treadmill than on the uneven trails. It hurt like a b%&$# running on the HAFTA trails on Sunday, but only bothers me for a few minutes while warming up on the treadmill. So while I'd always rather be outside, if this lets me run a bit more and hopefully gives the heel a bit of recovery time, so be it!
