April 28 - *Team Trials, MNOC
May 7 - *Billygoat, Ward Pound Ridge
June 23 - *Idaho, US Champs
July 1 - *WOC?
August 4 - COCs, Ottawa
September 16 - Rochester, Letchwork
October 14 - Boulderdash?
November - *either DVOA or QOC (more likely because of Classic Champs)
November - Traverse?

Busy busy. Hopefully I'll get to travel with elements of my squad, including Kenny, Ethan, and frenemy Will.

Running (Treadmill) 40:00 [1] 8.25 km (4:51 / km)
shoes: 201607 Asics GT1000

It was a bit cold outside, so during the Patriots-Texans playoff game, I stopped by the Goldring Centre (sic) for High Performance Sport on campus for a quick workout. My ID card hasn't been entered into the system yet, but the staff let me in, and I cruised for a scintillating forty minutes on a treadmill. I finished with 10 pullups for variety before calling it a night.

Earlier in the day, I participated in the OUSA Board meeting at Navigator Cup from the Law Library. There weren't any major decisions taken; most of the work pertaining to the allocation of effort for the year through Junior Development, Marketing and Publicity, and club services waits for us in the wings. I do think I should have ultimately voted against the Senior Team ESC's request for a minor rule change about the deadlines of paperwork submission simply because the justification was flimsy, but the matter is so procedural that it didn't deserve so much attention. I trust that people selected to the senior team will be dealt with fairly.

Fun fact: Tom Brady has more playoff wins than all but 8 NFL teams (out of 32). His playoff record (as part of the Patriots) is 23-9. Tremendous success.

Running 4:47 [1] 0.69 km (6:57 / km) +21m 6:01 / km
shoes: 201606 Inov-8 Oroc 280s

Orienteering 53:38 [2] 5.37 km (10:00 / km) +172m 8:37 / km
shoes: 201606 Inov-8 Oroc 280s

I stopped in Rochester on my transit from NYC to Boston, and Linda and Rick graciously hosted me. Per their suggestion, I stopped by Mendon Ponds to run a middle distance course from the Deaf Championships. I was here in April 2008 for the Relay Championships at which I ran Orange on CSU's second team. The terrain was much more interesting than I remembered, though the coming darkness made it challenging. The muddy sides of the hills - which would be already slippery - seemed moreso due to the cold. I wonder if different layers of the mud were at different temperatures; it seemed that the surface slid readily over a subsurface layer of ice. It was a pleasant and interesting outing; I ran into (and passed) a group of mountain bikers with lamps.

Orienteering 5:01 [1] 0.32 km (15:47 / km)
shoes: 201606 Inov-8 Oroc 280s

Quick jog back to auto-san. I stopped by the main Wegman's on Monroe Ave for dinner. It was impressive.

Support Ed! He does lots of great stuff, basically gives his skill away to help the US community, and has a huge positive impact on our events and clubs! And apparently the national federation is too busy doing other things or something.
