glad you took a clinic! As I tell people who want to learn to ski, you'll get so much more out of the sport if you have some idea of what you're trying to do with your body. I'm so jealous of all your biking!
It's been fun! We should bike together sometime, somewhere :).
And, yeah, a good coach/teacher is amazing! It cost money, but was super worth it.
Interesting to think about for orienteering... I have an idea for a half-day clinic for adventure racers (using an orange course at an orienteering race) based on what I did with my friends a few years ago. But...will see if I'm ever in a place where that's something I can do.
