Running from the car rental place to the ferry terminal, after successfully (I think) figuring out what to do with the car after hours, since I had received no instructions and it was quite unclear.
Lukas enjoyed both overnight ferry trips on Danskebåten. Traveling with a toddler limits the possibilities a little bit -- only one of the five restaurants opens early and doesn't require reservations, for example -- but it's also fun because he gets so much joy out of simple wandering around the boat. With something like seven passenger decks and a couple of kids areas there is plenty to explore. And by the time his bedtime rolls around we are exhausted, too, so it's no problem that at least one of us is confined to the cabin early!

A rushed warm up on the way to the start, including a run to the secretariat to get a new bib number, then back to my bag to get 40kr to pay for a new number, then back to the secretariat to actually get the bib. By the time that was all settled and I had it pinned on I didn't actually have a lot of time to get to the start. I also needed to pee and the woods between the arena and start 2 were very open, so it ended up being a fairly public pee.

WMOC Middle Final (A)
Quite pleased with my run but a bit disappointed by the result. Today was much more interesting and difficult than yesterday, and also more fun. I made a few smaller errors probably totaling up to something under 2 minutes, and of course the technical nature and lower visibility slowed me down. But I consider this a very good outing for me. I even led a train through the last few controls and into the finish.
Now for the disappointing part: the bottom 8 finishers today (25%) get relegated to the B final, which means I had to do at least as well as yesterday. Unfortunately I only beat 7 people, finishing 25th and 8 seconds back from 24th, which means I will run in the B final on Friday. Kind of sucks, but dems da rules this year, harsh as it is.
