orienteering 2:30:23 [3] 13.36 km (11:15 / km) +784m 8:42 / km

A-meet at Calero park in San Jose. Boo. I don't really like SF terrain.

On an unrelated note, we have come up with the greatest quasi-orienteering spinoff sport ever. World-wide coordinated parking lot maze-o. Those little streamer-maze micro sprints that are all the rage these days. Since there's no real "terrain" needed, identical mazes can be created in multiple locations all over the country and world on the same day. Everybody around the world runs the same course, Truckee gets -10 seconds for altitude, then all the results are combined on the internet. A full season of races every weekend at whatever 'real' orienteering is going on. Simultaneous live internet streaming of each venue. Head to head throwdowns. Beef Jerky and Budweiser tailgate sponsor parties. It'll be glorious. Tell ESPN to send my checks to the home address.

Woot no smoke! Got some rain yesterday, and the wind is going the other direction, so its pretty nice outside for a change. Its also 30 degrees, so I almost bit it on an icy wooden bridge.

It looked only half bad out there this morning, so I got out for a quick ride before it either got smokier or got rainier. Lots of wind out there though. Looks like we're in for a couple days of storms, which will help put out the current fires, but will probably also start a few more...

The smoke was bad all day but finally cleared a little bit late in the afternoon, so I went out for a quick ride around TD. Stopped to watch some cows fighting - lots of head butting and cow noises, until the big one headbutted the little one over an embankment down into the creek. That settled that.
