Orienteering (Beaumont Hills) 46:00  2.6 km (17:42 / km)
shoes: Asics Gel - Trabuco 13
Took Lachlan to orienteering (4yo)
was explaining north on the way to the event with an interesting conversation:
"north is in that direction Lachlan, do you know why I know north is over there?"
"Because you are smart Daddy ..."
"awww, thanks Lachlan, that is a very nice thing to say"
"Yes, because you use your brain, and we all have brains, everybody."
"That is right Lachlan, we all have brains"
"Yes daddy, even girls have brains"
so we took the score option (so that we didn't DNF a line course) and started to get the first treasure (I told him the controls were like treasures, and the map was like a treasure map) in which he was very excited to find each treasure.
after getting controls numbered 1, 2 and 3, I wanted to go for the nearest control and perhaps turn back, but Lachlan was adamant that we had to get control 4, we got there after 30 total time mins so it was time to turn back and try to get home in 15, Lachlan did get a piggy back for about 300m due to sore legs, but he did do a bit of running around in the morning.
we got back 1 min late .. he was keen to do it again :)
