Run 40:00 [3] 4.7 mi (8:31 / mi)
shoes: Lop


Tom and Sandy were there.

Ran on the track--the first people to do so after the snow.

It was quite crusty, but not crusty enough to not fall through. Hard work. On the last few laps I could not keep up with Tom..

Run long 1:31:00 [3] 9.0 mi (10:07 / mi)
shoes: Lop

Took off to Tyler in the afternoon, in the manner of one without a job. Running in the afternoon is something I could get used to, but it might make me soft, so not so much of that.

Intended to do 1 hour to 1:20, but ended up going longer (perhaps just because of the fact that the pace slowed after 50 minutes or so, especially as the snow got crustier.)

Went to the fox den, but no evidence of foxes there. There were many tracks elsewhere. Saw a big hawk-like thing, but we have many more colorful birds at home.

It would have been great conditions for skiing (were I to do such a thing) and indeed, one intrepid soul was gliding classic style through Tyler.

For my part, I ran on trails, fields, or forest. It was all the same: "Very Nice!!" Perhaps even calling for: "High Five!!"

Well, I digress. Those evaluations are best done by my colleagues with more hair and fewer inhibitions.


While the weather outside was frightful, I felt quite delightful.

And who wouldn't? With my performance apparel from Axis Gear* and lightweight racing shoes from Berman's Orienteering Supply*, I was ready for anything.

And then when I got home, I made myself a tall glass of oh-so-refreshing Gookinaid Hydralyte* electrolyte replacement drink in the yummy orange flavor. I was rejeuvenated in no time!

* Yes indeedy, these are all official sponsors of the DVOA Jukola 2007 Team. These fine firms know a winner! (You might call this a commercial endorsement. No kidding! DVOA Jukola 2007 is unabashedly commercial, and undeniably good.)


Had one of these later.

Not a sponsor, yet, but I suppose there are higher priorities.

Weight training 10:00 [2]

Bike 20:00 [3] 8.04 mi (2:29 / mi)

Level 7 hills.


TNT was cancelled, so I got to go to the Fed gym one last time. And reflect on teh end of another chapter in life.

2 more years down. But, they were good ones. I exceeded my expectations for my own orienteering career in some respects. Or I guess I had a chance to continue what I set aside in 2000.

Is there more to do? Well, certainly. How will the new gig contribute to that? Hard to say.

I suppose if the market continues to go up, boats of all types will be lifted. Of course, we want to make money regardless of what the "market" does, but let's be honest; the "market" is our master whether or not we thumb our nose at it.

More prosaically, a stable market is a first order indicator of lack of disturbances beneath the surface. Though, those shoals can still exist.

Ships foundered on natural gas in September while the market was sanguine.

Anyway, I better go look at some options.

Ran back faster.
