Brad, Sandy, and Mike (team name: Lack of Cartilage) came down from Pennsylvania to compete in an adventure race called VentureQuest. Early on, Mike makes sure everything is attached before starting the mountain biking section.
They did great – 41 out of 100 overall. They kicked butt on the orienteering section, as did Jon T. Jon finished 2nd overall in the race.
Roger and I had a rare weekend day together, and we spent it doing an exciting round of errands. We started out so early that we made it to the wine store before it was even open. Next was the feed store for pig bedding. And then finally, lunch in Vienna . Ummm, I guess you could say that I wore him done by lunchtime. There was no objection when I went off to an orienteering event the next day.
I left work early and went to Lake Accotink for a run. I was feeling a bit sluggish, so I grabbed my little camera and took some pictures as I went around the ~4 mile loop. More pictures on Flickr.
The Washington, DC metropolitan area turned into a “small world” yesterday. Because the 5000 meter run was so sparsely attended, I, as second woman, got my name into The Washington Post. It turns out that I also set the meet record in the event for the 45-49 age group. Laughable, but still fun to see my name in the paper.
