Orienteering 1:00:00 
Coaching. We had another Mid-Atlantic Junior Team training session today. I used existing controls from the QOC local event to create a pairs map contact / relocation exercise. Each runner in a pair has every other control on their map. As the person with #1 on it leads the way to #1, the other person has to follow along and identify the location of #1 when they get there. Then the second person leads to #2, and the roles reverse.
We had an odd number of juniors, so I paired up with Sam L. It was good to get out and to watch Sam in action. The heat and steepness meant that we weren't moving quickly. At the end, I stayed behind a bit longer to help Valerie search for a runaway beagle. Luckily, Pepper returned shortly.
Neither Alli nor I ended up going out on a course. When I am coaching and Alli is helping with SI, it is difficult to also get out on a course, especially if Inara hasn't napped. We have concluded that the optimal number of parents per child is three.
