What a beautiful day! Spring weather has hit Uppsala, even if for just a day. Today it was OK Linné's turn to arrange an event, the long distance part of Uppsala Möte, with excellent courses by Jan on a newly-drawn Ekdalen map. One of my tasks today was putting out SI units, and this involved waking up at 6am. We drove out to the early morning forest and ran out through the ice-cold (it was below freezing overnight) marshes and soft hills - all alone in the beautiful, quiet woods, with nary a moose to disturb the peace.
The actual race day was spent helping put up results and socializing, the highlight of which was meeting Asplövet
in person for the first time after reading his awesome blog for a long time. As he wrote today, we mostly talked about the state of my butt, and its effect on the prospects of CSU's Tiomila team.
Afterwards we went out and picked up SI units and controls, but this time, the chilly marshes were almost refreshing in the afternoon heat.
A fine day and a great event, with around 1300 competitors.
Oh yeah, Linné's Tiomila teams are now up: http://www.oklinne.nu/index.php?page=uk/uk_main.ph...
Looks good! Don't think I could have made the second team in the form I am in now.
