Did you and Kate end up signing up together?
No. I was feeling too uneasy about how unprepared I was and I just wasn't comfortable committing to doing it with someone that I thought could go for 24 hours when I knew that I couldn't. Instead, I'm doing it with a newcomer to orienteering who has never done a rogaine; we signed up for 12 hours but may scale back to 6.
That makes good sense. Hope it goes well! We’ll likely be seeing you at SCEE Wednesday and will wish you good luck then :)
