Long tempoish run. For some reason I started feeling like death around mile eight, but pushed through it and brought the last two back down under 7:00/mile pace. The trail I was running along was called something like "Rock Creek Greenway" - foreshadowing of next weekend!

Orienteering race (CROC - Wenzel Farm) 21:37 [4] ** 2.8 km (7:43 / km) +40m 7:12 / km
17c

I cruised down to Portland for the weekend to visit some friends, and there happened to be a CROC event going on. How serendipitous! They advertised this as a "brand new" map - I guess they got that right. The map was...creatively impressionistic. No offense to anyone, but if COC ran a meet on a map like that, the workers of the world might finally unite.

Overall I'd say the meet was somewhat lower-key than a Sammamish meet. I'm not even sure they recorded times. But hey, it's still orienteering!

Also, the CROC veterans are in a bit of an uproar over Ali's impending arrival. This might be the biggest O-thing to happen down there since they hosted the US Champs in...2008?

I wasn't planning to ride today, but there is an old Confucian proverb that goes something like this: "When it is a sunny morning in Seattle between November and May, even for five minutes, you must ride a bicycle to your place of employment, because that doesn't happen very often."

Thought of the day: If you ever played Mario Kart on Super Nintendo, you know that in Time Trial mode you could race against ghosts who represented your best times on each course - there would be you as whoever, plus Ghost Bowser, Ghost Princess or Ghost Luigi, etc. I would like this to happen on my rides to/fro work, so that I could race against a whole mob of Ghost Wills spread out in a 5-6 minute long peloton. I feel like this technology might actually be feasible - somebody get Google on the phone.
