Orienteering race 1:39:40 [4] *** 8.96 mi (11:07 / mi) +475m 9:33 / mi

CYA 1 - Lord Hill Score-O. Mainly a trail run but I took three substantial off-trail cuts and was pleased to navigate bang-on all three times. In many places forest was quite thick, consisting of various combinations of nettles, salal, blackberries, and devil's club, so still probably not optimal route choices, but wanted to get off the trails for a bit at least. Didn't feel good physically; even felt some thigh cramping near the end. Finished 70s behind Eric.

Cycling 15:00 [2] 3.0 mi (12.0 mph)

Went to the Mariners game against the Jays with some friends in town. So. Many. Canadians. It was unbelievable. I've never seen Safeco like that even for the Yankees or Sox. Vancouver must be empty right now, because every 20-something is in downtown Seattle.

Later on we made friends with two Frenchmen in FC Nantes shirts who taught me some good French swearwords; I forgot to ask them if they know of Thierry Gueorgiou. A missed opportunity. Every bar was 65% Jays fans, 10% Cougars fans. A woman wanted to slap me in the face, so I let her, because everyone needs a good solid slap once in a while. Down near the stadiums there was also a military convoy and some sort of clown gathering, and people giving out 12-packs of yogurt. A real weird night.

Here is a joke I heard:

"If they had done it right, Canada could have had French cuisine, British culture, and American technology. Instead, they ended up with British cuisine, American culture, and French technology."

Running 40:11 [3] 5.32 mi (7:33 / mi) +100m 7:08 / mi

Bridle Trails run. Calves not happy; they may be slightly strained, particularly the left one. Too much pavement!

It's a little heartrending to see all the cool kids gathering in Europe for racing and fun. Wishing right now that I hadn't chosen not to go, why didn't anyone tell me it was a bad choice...

"And even that wasn’t the end of it. The Soviets produced hundreds of remarkably detailed 1:10,000 maps of foreign cities, mostly in Europe, and they may have mapped the entire USSR at this scale, which Watt estimated would take 440,000 sheets."
