Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Another top list...Today I've got my own top 5 O' list for 2003. Saturday's list was top O' news, today's is my own top O' experiences for the year:
Continued recovery. Throughout the year my injured left leg got better and better. A year ago my knee was stiff every day and sore a few days a week. Now my knee is stiff maybe once a month, and sore about once every few weeks.
Three great events. Three O' events come to mind: the team trials in Harriman, New York; the Great Lakes O' Festival in Hamilton, Ontario; and the Western Connecticut "Event in Kent." All three meets featured interesting courses on good maps in interesting terrain. I wish I'd run better the first day in Harriman. I wish I hadn't gotten sick the last day of the GLOF, and I wish I'd been in better shape for the races in Connecticut.
Cool web pages. Attackpoint and Staff-Valstad.com remain worth visiting every day.
Motivation getting better and better . Thinking back over the entire year, I think my motivation has been improving throughout the year. There have been some high points (just after the relay race at the team trials) and some low points (just after the bogus races in Idaho), but overall I'm feeling more-and-more motivation.
Local night O' training.I love night O' and I'm really psyched that we've had night O' trainings every couple of weeks. The turnout has been good and the training has been a blast. Just two days left till the next session -- a January 1st 2-hour score event at SMP. posted by Michael | 7:23 PM
