Drove home last night instead of staying for today's training. Probably the wise move, as a good lie-in was appropriate.

Instead I got a telephone call inviting me out to Purchase, where I spent a couple of hours imparting knowledge of sprint norms and in general getting excited about the area and enjoying the lovely day that was in it. Until I got tired and wanted to go to bed, anyway :)

Wow! For those not following skiwoc, AliC was 8th!

Brain was hyperactive last night, so sleeping was a beech...

Up for a medal this year?

Yale "Sprint"

Big thanks to Becky for this, as it was really top-notch map and course. I jogged as fast as I could jog without my heart exploding. Lots and lots of fun.

Took a while to recover. I think the ice-cream at M&M's helped :)

It was great to see everyone. Winter was too long!

Woken up at 10:30 by a phone call informing me that negative strep turned into positive for strep after a few days.

Tireder today, I guess it's five days after Sunday's exertions.

Orienteers are wonderful, but every so often...

It's funny how some universities, you go in, say you are interested in setting up some orienteering activity and putting on an event, and they go, cool, brilliant, we need new activities for the students, there's an outdoor skills course without any orienteering, or it could be set up as a sport giving credit for the phys ed module, and we don't have much money but a stipend could probably be arranged, and Harriman is a wonderful place, and sure, holding events here shouldn't be any problem, and if the students were interested, what sort of equipment would they need if they wanted to put on an event, and if the students don't have cars to go training there are vans that could be borrowed, and la dee la dee daaa...

Scary thought for the day: Sarah Palin may be not as thick as she appears. Some scientists would argue that humans and dinosaurs do co-exist. I guess it depends on how you define robins (or Mr Paisley).
