Around the north side of the lake to my folks' house in Kirkland. Tons of people on the BG, which slowed things down a bit and prevented getting into a good rhythm. I caught up to a guy who was clearly fast, but wasn't in a particular hurry - the perfect kind of guy for a joker like me to leech onto. He dropped me on the climb up to St. Ed despite not looking particularly bothered, then I caught back up coming down, then he actually put some effort on the Market Street climb and totally left me for dead. I caught back up again in downtown Kirkland but soon had to peel off and part ways, unfortunately.

Completion of the Lake Washington loop around the south end (after a long break). Much less congestion and less climb, so achieved a bit more speed. Coming north into the wind off the lake was arduous, especially the last few miles on LW Blvd.

Note

We hiked up Hex Mountain, on 903 toward Salmon La Sac. Pretty chill hike and mostly overcast, but still nice 360 views including the higher mountains in the Mount Stuart area, Cle Elum Lake, the Teanaway valley, and the Yakima River valley toward Ellensburg.

I was watching the movie Mystic River recently, and recognized one scene as having been shot in Boston's Franklin Park due to orienteering there at Boston Sprint Camps. This got me wondering whether there are other readily recognizable orienteering venues which make appearances on-screen. Vasquez Rocks would be the obvious one; my understanding is that there has also been orienteering in Central Park. Surely there are others?

Saw a guy in the grocery store the other day wearing a black t-shirt with just "TESLA" across the front in the company branded script. Then in the parking lot there was a Tesla, license plate "T3ZLA." Like bruh...you gotta chill.

This spring I have often seen either one or two Canada geese hanging out on the trail adjacent to some wetlands about a half mile from my work; today they were accompanied by five goslings! I had thought we were cool but they were very unhappy with my brief presence.
