One of the hardest things about WOD is determining when it happens. Or if ir's really kinda WOW instead? Or WOfortnight? Well, I was thinking it might be today, but who knows, when I walked around downtown this morning, I couldn't detect signs of much of anything, so I just thought to myself: "To hell with it, whenever it is anywhere else, today in Laradise it is WOD."
WOD is a very special day to me. I made my preparations. I put on running shoes, and even preceded that with the putting on of socks. And then I went out and ran intervals, 10 x 5 min., and even when it looked like it could rain/grapple, it didn't, so that part went pretty well. Then I went home and made pizza while listening to the WOD official song: "Private Idaho". I have no idea how the IOF chose "Private Idaho", but my theory hinges on a sophisticated analysis of two salient factors: 1) it's a very groovy song, and 2) notice how "Idaho" ends with an "O". If "O" doesn't stand for orienteering on WOD, then when in the world does it? (Of course on all the other days of the year, "O" stands for Oreo. We all know that.)
I know I shouldn't have to add this, but the pizza/Prvate Idaho part went pretty well, too. Won't you please come crawl out your window, it is WOD, and you can go back anytime you want to.
