Orienteering at Burr Oak Woods. Dick L set the course.
I was satisfied with my run. I worked pretty hard and wasn't lazy. Except I was lazy about warming up and did that on the way to the first control. I was a little suprised to beat Tom H. Not shocked, but pleased.
I've got maflixer running. I'm guessing it will take all night to run. If it works, I'll post the video tomorrow.
I didn't do a first dinner to prep for a second dinner. So I got really hungry before dinner. There are some lessons to learn from Tom C.
Update...mapflixer video. I was curious how long it would take to create the video. I guess I spent maybe 10-15 minutes downloading the video files, georeferencing the map, adjusting the GPS track, and editing the mapflixer configuration file. I started mapflixer about 4:30 p.m. Saturday. The final video file was finished at about 3:30 a.m. Sunday (roughly 11 hours to generate the video for a race of about an hour). That's good to know.
Ack...I made a small typing error in the configuration file (not noticing that the files names used a 0 rather than an O). The result is that the final video gets hung up at the 12 minute mark. I'll see if I can fix that.
Jogging on West Campus. The temp seemed to be falling.

A very short mini-night-sprint. Mostly this was to get a GPS track and chest-mount video to do another mapflixer video. I wanted to test adjusting the GPS track at map.routegadget.net so that it doesn't go through buildings. I also want to see if it works to start the video but not start the map immediately. I don't think the video will be great because I was running with a headlamp and I think the camera likes a lot more light.
The mapflixer is running. When it is done, I'll upload the video and post it here. It might be later tonight or it might be tomorrow.....and now it is ready.
I jogged on West Campus tonight. As I was heading out, Mary was returning...and her lamp was out. I hope the problem was that I unplugged her charger when the battery wasn't fully charged. That would be better than the time I set her jacket on fire with a headlamp.
I went slowly. I always run slowly, but tonight was even slower than usual.
