Indoor Climbing (Bouldering) 1:00:00 [2]

first time back at SBP in quite a while - it's been so long that i had to fill out a new waiver on their chalk-choked keyboards (filling it out took 3x longer than it should have since none of the keys were registering my taps).

remembered why bouldering makes me both nervous and is a lot of fun! some of the walls at SBP seem so high to climb on un-roped, so i find myself taking a lot less risk because i'm afraid of falling. it is a bit more of a workout since i down-climb most everything to avoid jumping down from the top. today was about getting back comfortable with it - not super sure if i'll keep going regularly since VW is so convenient for me. but i do have 4 more punches left on my card, so i'll go that many times at least.

the fun thing about bouldering, though, is i do think it pushes me to do some moves that i don't get to do on a top-rope. or at least not on the routes i've been climbing at VW. things like more dynamic movements and hanging like a sloth and heel hooking.

Urban Hiking (Canvassing) 1:30:00 [1] 2.0 mi (45:00 / mi) +40m 42:22 / mi

finally got out to the 45th LD for some get-out-the-vote canvassing. pretty quiet at the campaign office - after getting a quick training, got sent out on my own to a neighborhood in kirkland. my canvassing assignment was 62 doors/94 people.

felt a bit clumsy at first, but got the hang of it and it was actually kind of fun (in an easy-orienteering way) to cross-reference the map and the address sheets they gave me. most doors knocked weren't answered, so i left flyers. the few people i did get to talk to had a bit of canvass fatigue - it seemed that neighborhood had been pretty well-hit leading up to tomorrow's election. (that's what you get for living in an important swing district for this election!! :D) reactions ranged from being grumpy and annoyed to thanking me for being out there to get the word out. happily, most people had already voted and several confirmed that they had voted for my candidate.

i did catch one guy just getting home from work who seemed to not be aware there was an election happening or know who i was canvassing for. he accepted the flyer and said he did have his ballot inside, so hopefully that is one person i was able to reach and actually get to vote?

thanks to sun setting at 4:43p (?!??!!) i was only able to get to 33 doors before it was pretty dark and i didn't feel comfortable wandering around on my own anymore. at least i got to more than half of my assignment!
