Orienteering race 1:23:23 [5] ***** 10.98 km (7:36 / km) +325m 6:37 / km
20c shoes: Oroc X-Talon Shadow

Long course. This went quite well, and my few silly mistakes weren't as bad as I thought they were at the time, even though I did find 18 before 17... :)

Also, sidenote, my returning flight got delayed by 3 AND A HALF HOURS so I feel like creating a Siri-inspired verse/poem/song to describe it...

Oh, United can't you see,
by the day's fading light,
what so proudly would hail at 5:40,
by twilight isn't moving.
Whose lack of air conditioning kept us through the night
through the windows we watched; AC was so gallantly not working.
And the captain's updates, the people's tempers bursting in (non-air-conditioned) air,
gave proof through the night, that our delays were still there.
Oh say will this deeellaaayyyed flight ever actually take off,
from the land of the fast orienteers, and the terrain of my dreams...

(sing it to the tune of "Star-Spangled Banner")

Leg 3 of a 6-point relay team with Julia and Amalie. Big thanks to both of them for carrying our team; I made some silly errors and got (very painfully) KO-ed by green-briar multiple times which made my race feel kinda sloppy...

Tuesday Apr 9 #

Note
(rest day)

Does lugging around 10 mega-bags of mulch count as a log-able activity? Sure felt like it... :)
