biking 1:00:00  10.0 mi (6:00 / mi)
I biked to work in the morning, it's so much faster than running, and that means I can leave the house later, which means I can lie around in bed longer. I then left work at about 5:40 or so to get to the Franklin Park Park-O race. did you know that they put a nice bike path all the way down the Orange line tracks? that made it really easy to get where I needed to go.
I didn't need to bike home in the rain like Sanne, because Sam drove me home. Yay for hot women who pick up stranded bikers.

The Park-O was great. Pia set a fun course, and I luckily was running fast enough to absorb errors ( I doubt that speed was solely responsible for causing the errors). Right out of the gate I was hesitant on the first control, but that was mostly getting used to the map. Park o controls are not as visible, so my second control was a bit slow too, as I could not find the depression even when I was standing next to it. I passed a group going to control 6, and feeling the flow I picked up pace going to 7... this was a bad idea because I made a parallel error for about 20 seconds just because I was pushing harder than I could think. recovered well though, and spiked the next one, good flow going to 9, and then I saw Jeff Shapiro ( I think, it was from the back) and got distracted/didn't run straight on my compass, and bobbled the next control. I was feeling a little tired going into the last loop, but I think that was mostly the climb. Once I got going downhill my legs had plenty of oxygen to go around.
I think for me, hesitation cost me a couple of minutes ( though hesitating may also have staved off really serious errors) and just poor execution cost me a couple more. I'm looking forward to next weeks
