Orienteering 1:17:58 [3]

Skipped the first ("progressive") Zero-to-Orange exercise, because Dad and I had early start times and it didn't work to change them.

For the orienteering, really felt the heat and altitude and was moving slowly.

Orienteering 1:36:01 [3]

Early start so I could go to the airport and meet Theron, arriving with the Koehlers. Pulled a 180 coming out of 3. Lost a lot of time on it.

Last day of Zero to Orange. Took the final exam.


In the afternoon, we tried out archery:

Orienteering 40:00 [2]

Didn't feel like going out on blue, the way I'd originally planned, and did yellow instead. Not sure of my time. Definitely was moving slowly; walked the whole way. Hot!


The first musical bookend to our time in Colorado. Went to Elbert with Dave Enger, John Lee and Dave to see a local band. I liked the lead guitar best. Dave E stayed and talked to that guitar player afterward, and discovered that he knows the guitar player in String Cheese Incident - they live just 12 miles apart.

Orienteering 57:00 [2]

First day of the Zero to Orange in Three Days class. I took this as a "trainer", though my participation was pretty much identical to that of a "student". Which was fine - it was a very useful course for me, both in terms of my own orienteering and thinking about how I'd like to teach kids.

My kids, parents and partner (Dave) all took this course too.

The first day there was classroom lecture, and an orange-level score-O. I finished in just under the alotted hour, and was surprised to find I'd gotten more controls than Dave. I was glad to see the rest of the family safely back. Isabel had done particularly well, getting the high-score controls without much trouble.

Running 27:00 [2]

Morning jog in Albuquerque before the kids woke up. From the hotel south on University, across the water channel, and further south. This felt really hard!

We are visiting my kids' paternal grandmother Jan and great-grandmother Grace. Jan, David and Isabel spent the day at a "family fun center" and saw "Ratatouille".
