Running 1:08:26  9.07 mi (7:33 / mi) +200m 7:04 / mi
Not sure if I've mentioned this on my log before, but for a long time orienteering was classified in my brain as a family activity. Then it somewhat abruptly became a "me" thing for a while a couple years back, but almost as soon as it did, I started on the path to where I am, such that now any time I go to a local, regional, or national event, I look forward to seeing lots of cool people whom I consider friends just as much (or sometimes more) as I look forward to racing, which I find to be a great thing.
And if you're reading this, whether from the Seattle area, West Coast, East Coast, Canada, Europe, or wherever, chances are you've been a part of that. So thanks, and keep being your awesome selves.
