Very nice to see our juniors do well this past weekend.

Actually, not just that, but also to see the good team vibes under the leadership of Coach Erin.

Orienteering is usually an individual sport, but having a good team can make a huge difference in attitude, morale, and training consistency, and all that usually translates into better results.

Congrats to the whole group for showing up, for being prepared, and for racing well. It's a good group of kids.


And for those who donated to the marathon fundraiser last year, a modest part of that money was used this past weekend -- some travel support as needed, renting a home for them to all stay together (instead of camping), a van (or two?), and entry fees. These things make a difference. And it also makes a difference knowing that people in the orienteering community are supporting you.

Up the river to Montague and back. Decent breeze out of the south, so easy effort on the way out, a good more work on the way back.

The weather is changing. Going to have to figure out what to wear as it gets cooler.

Seemed like a good time for my weekly jog (between watching the sprint and watching the sprint relay), and also a good place (rolling back road a little NE of Hanover, where we stayed). Goal was a mile out and a mile back, perhaps even with just a stop at the turn-around.

And did exactly that. :-)

Butt sore as usual, left side more so. Quads tight/stiff as usual, left side more so. But better to be doing something than nothing.

Today was the long-distance orienteering so I did a longish ride. Wasn't the time of day or the start/finish point that I would have chosen, but you take what the possibilities are.

Nippy this morning, mid-40s, bit of fog around. Started at the parking for the Long, so the first 3 miles were mostly downhill, last thing you want for starting out on a cold morning. But I gave myself a talking to -- just ignore the cold and it will pass -- and in fact the cold did pass.

And then a nice loop up in the Vermont hills. Several steep climbs, but at least they weren't too long. Still, would have been easier if the legs hadn't felt dead right from the start, and I don't think they ever got any better. Just one of those days.

Stopped to refuel at 25 miles at the general store in Sharon, as I was carrying neither food nor drink. Fortunately there is always a little money in the saddlebag.

And then I would have been totally happy to finish in downtown Hanover, avoiding the last couple of miles uphill, but that was not the program...

Still, glad to got out, saw some nice country, and no falls.


Has a nice chat with Tuulikki Salmenkyla, mother of Anton, daughter of Juhani (who I met many times over the years at European events). She's been helping the Junior Team with arrangements in Finland (that's where JWOC 2017 is), plus was with them at JWOC this summer. She had good things to say about Erin and the program and the group of kids, lots of progress, just have to make sure we stick with it because things takes time.

Took a ride from Hanover up to the Dartmouth Skiway, a place I'd raced maybe a dozen times a long time ago. Caught a little rain for the first few miles, and cooler than I'm used to (60s), but then the rain stopped and the road was dry. And I was dressed just right, so no complaints.

Easy ride up the river and back. Light breeze from the south.

Taking the bike along up to Hanover, though I think I need to pack some warmer clothes too.
