Running 48:12 [3] 6.42 mi (7:31 / mi) +95m 7:11 / mi

At a bachelor party in Spokane/northern Idaho for the weekend and managed to sneak in a run. Around Manito Park, then over to High Dr and found a trail along the bluff with nice views of the Hangman's Creek valley below.

I like Spokane a lot and would totally live there; it is something of an outdoor enthusiast's paradise. In fact, as my athletic endeavors have slowly gravitated over the last 5-7 years from basketball, soccer, etc. to running, biking, and orienteering, I've realized that in my 5+ years of living there I never fully took advantage of what Spokane has to offer, and in certain ways my current interests should in fact point me back to Spokane over Seattle:

Trail running: Spokane > Seattle
Road cycling: Spokane > Seattle
MTB: Spokane > Seattle
O-terrain: Spokane >>> Seattle

Only problems are:

O-club/people: Seattle >>> Spokane
O-maps: Seattle >>> Spokane

Orienteering race 17:29 [4] ** 4.3 km (4:04 / km) +10m 4:01 / km
16c

Canadian champs sprint. Pretty clean race, though I did have two or three 5s route choice inefficiencies. Ankle was somewhat sore upon waking up so I was a little unsure whether I could race, but I taped tight and it turned out okay. Helped that the footing was almost all flat grass or flat pavement.

Running warm up/down 8:13 [2] 0.69 mi (11:55 / mi) +5m 11:39 / mi

11 AM

Orienteering race 16:44 [4] ** 3.89 km (4:18 / km) +12m 4:14 / km
15c

Club sprint relay! Leg three. This was a really fun event - we formed a 12pt Cascade team consisting of Debbie Newell, Rick Breseman, myself, and Eileen Breseman, and had a great time cheering each other and other folks on.

Running warm up/down 9:14 [2] 1.03 mi (8:58 / mi) +5m 8:50 / mi
