Looks like a not an easy HH. Nice time!

Must have been an exciting last control and run-in!

Stay tuned for the write up.

Look who's recovering nicely from going under the knife! Nice run!

Everyone finishing in your pack is a dad.

Yeah, we decided that I have to be the freshest 'cause I only have one kid. On the way to 22, Will started singing children's songs...

I'm jealous that Ken's kids aren't fans of Bieber.

I play curated lists of my music on runs with my kids in the chariot, but for my daughter Bieber trumps it all!!

I blame it on my wife.

Brilliant race, Boris, and a very nice write-up. Interesting to read about so many controls you "missed", but you were the only runner for whom AP assigned no lost time. Good concentration and quick recoveries.

you know this sentence has a very different meaning when you stop reading at the number 22.

"Yeah, we decided that I have to be the freshest 'cause I only have one kid. On the way to 22, Will started singing children's songs..."


Funny children's songs story. When Mark Adams' daughter was a few years old Mark was driving himself to work (about a 40 minute commute). It wasn't until he was getting into the company parking lot when he realized he had been listening to (and apparently singing along to) Raffi the entire way (

feet: was the one this time. Also on repeat in my head for much of the rest of the course, so I was just sharing. Along with, of all things, 'There was an old man called Michael Finnigan.'

I can out-Baby Beluga the Griz any time.

The dinosaur train is going to have a rough time when the Tyrannosaurus grows up and eats everyone else in the family.

worth staying tuned for

Hats off to you and the other dads for a really impressive race. I won, but you guys stayed pretty close considering our respective level of training.

I continue to maintain that you and your generation constitute some of our most technically-adept orienteers. It gives me a goal to strive towards.

Priceless. I still catch Sandra Boynton songs running through my head from time to time, but I've never had the opportunity to share the experience with anyone on a course. Way to go, dads!

I find the melodies a little bit clunky - but most definitely memorable. :)

Barnyard Dance is my fave.

Oh brother, Barnyard Dance. My kids are 16 now and I still remember that one. And don't forget "This is the song that never ends..."

Where do I find the melodies for these books? I just Sing-a-Song them to Inara
Oct 8, 2017 12:46 PM # 
That's what I meant by clunky.

I do the same and it comes out more spoken word, less song-y.

I feel like I nail the Barnyard Dance though! :)

There are Boynton songbooks, which come with CDs. Amazon pulls them up if you search on Boynton music.

Cows...such remarkable cows...
