Orienteering 1:20:27 [4] 7.2 km (11:10 / km)
shoes: orienteering shoes

Day 1!

Great fun and a lot of controls went well, with the exception of two major errors that were frustrating:

#3: I saw the control, didn't check it, ran in circles for 8 minutes, and then found it again and punched it. Very annoying! -8 minutes.

#12: I convinced myself that the control must be at the top of a reentrant near a rootstock even though the map said it was in the next reentrant over. I stared at the map for a very long time here, too, then bailed to the road and attacked the same incorrect location again. Bizarre! Then I came to my senses and realized it was over there. -3 minutes.

Run 45:28 [3] 5.0 mi (9:06 / mi)
shoes: Nike Trail

I went for a run with Christina after the history lecture. Through Battle Park and along Bolin Creek and then across MLK through a short trail system I hadn't explored before.

...maybe they're the trails that supposedly link the hopefully-to-be-next year's-house with the Bolin Creek trail. That would be awesome :).

We came back via the enormous hill at Hillsborough St, which I found quite difficult but we managed to run up the whole thing. Success!

Distance is approximate; my watch has 4.46 but took awhile to locate. I should probably start leaving it under a bush for ~10 mins before going out to run.

Absolutely beautiful day out, and t-shirt weather!


Super excited for Georgia tomorrow!!

Run 29:40 [3] 3.0 mi (9:53 / mi)
shoes: Nike Trail

Morning run #1.

Battle Park. Clear and cold; nice for running but I was glad I had a hat.

The time includes stopping briefly to chat with a friend I ran into in the woods, but that can't really account for much of the speed issue here. Looks like it was a sloww morning run.

But on the bright side, I feel much less sick than yesterday!


Eric gave me some mapping tips (thanks!), so hopefully that project will be underway soon :).

Run 20:24 [3]
shoes: Nike Trail

Quick run around campus in the evening. I'm going to start running in the mornings instead since class doesn't start till 9 or 9.30 this semester. I think it'll be more efficient and more consistent.

Bio #1: seems good so far
Spanish: professor is awesome
Chem: professor is nice but apparently really difficult.

Bio #2, history, & modes of inquiry tomorrow.
