Yesterday's middle Red course (F21), quite different from my Green course.

orienteering 52:02 [4] 6.0 km (8:40 / km)

Totally better than yesterday. A little cooler (the weather) than yesterday, more energy, traces of some long-forgotten fighting spirit, a little more mental intensity. Yesterday there was no way I could say it was fun. Today it was hard work, and that by definition is fun.

Time was just good enough to sneak ahead of the usual suspects among the old men, just a fellow from Hungary (I think) in M50 who was well ahead of me, but I can deal with that.

Still a long ways to go, but it was oh so nice, for example, to actually run up the gradual incline to the 3rd from last control. Time to start thinking about a summer trip? Maybe, but first need to make plans for the Western Mass 3-Day, Tuesday to Thursday this week, sites still to be determined. Time to get in some sorely needed woods running.

I'll post the map later.


And a culture stop on the way home, been meaning to go there for years, the Storm King Art Center, a wonderful collection of outdoor sculptures spread over some 500 acres of rolling hills. Absolutely worth a visit.


Is this the start of something? Another very cute female orienteer asked me to take my shirt off so she could check me out.
