I'm a person who needs novelty and adventure and lately there hasn't been much in my life. So when I saw the weather was going to be warm this weekend, I decided it was the perfect time to sign up for a zipline. This one goes from tower to tower down the hill. I'm not fond of heights, so the toughest part was just stepping off the tower for the first time. The trees are starting to change colors, and there was a nice view of KC and the Kaw. It was lovely.

I wore my HR monitor to see if adrenaline caused my HR to spike. It did not. I only kept the time that my HR was above a resting pace. Not much!

I had fun on my little adventure for the day.

I wasn't sure if I was going to train today. But when Mike asked me to join him on a bike ride on this warm sunny evening, how could I resist?

Some topics of conversation:
how cool it is that my grad school adviser won the Nobel Prize today; new features in Open Orienteering Mapper; what to make for dinner; attending the Nobel lectures in person; data-driven decisions; and when to host a night O event.

Practice at Overlook. I drew a course that had longish legs/trail runs followed by quick and precise controls. I have trouble after long legs, because I get tired and/or I let my mind wander. This was pretty good practice, but not the hardest since I know the area so well. I need to try this exercise on another map. (Although looking for single trees was a good way to practice concentration and detailed map reading.)

Beautiful fall day. I stayed after to watch some kids (and their parents) at the playground. Weird to see kids rushing to greet each other (friend just arrived) but then stopping a few feet apart instead of hugging. Also interesting to see that the dads stood back/stared at their phones and let the kids play while the moms hovered over/interacted with the kids.
