Orienteering race (Red course) 1:48:32 [3] 5.4 mi (20:06 / mi) +712ft 17:52 / mi
slept:8.0 shoes: Salomon Speedcross (2014)

Red course at Peaceful Valley. I was lucky to not be affected by the mid-meet deranged-ranger course changes, since I started relatively early. :-P


* Found a deer skull with huge antlers on my way to #1. I carried it to #1 and then stashed it behind the utility boxes at the end of the nearby powerline. Retrieved it after I finished the course.

* Stopped to give directions on my way to #13, and got a little lost as a result (I probably would've gotten lost anyway, since I was looking for the junction of two very indistinct trails...).

* Had THE COOLEST MID-RACE ANIMAL SIGHTING EVER! as I neared #15: a mama bobcat and a bobcat kitten trotting across the trail. So cute (and rare).

This is a generic photo off the internet, but they looked like this (except that they were walking / trotting):

Administration 1:30:00 [3]

Worked on results for the Peaceful Valley meet. This was a gigantic pain, since I had to create a second set of courses & classes, figure out which version each person was on, etc.

Set-up for Peaceful Valley meet: create e-punch files, start cards, etc.

This took longer than it should have because, although I remembered to bring my laptop to Troy's house, I forgot the power cord. :-| So I had to install OE2010 on his PC (which meant lots of email searching to find the license number), recreate the mail merge doc for the start cards from scratch, etc. Ugh.

Cycling 1:41:02 [3] 10.55 mi (9:35 / mi) +702ft 9:01 / mi
slept:8.0 shoes: Rumor

FINALLY had a chance to ride the new mountain bike I got a month ago...!

We went to Hidden Mesa. Started at the Parker trailhead, up Pleasant Pass, two loops at the top, and then down Pleasant Pass.
