Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Falling downAm I getting old or just unlucky?
I've always taken falls while I'm orienteering. But, until the last few years, I didn't seem to get hurt very often. Now it seems like I'm sore for days (or more) a couple of times a season. Is that age? Or am I just having bad luck and taking harder falls?
In Ohio, I caught my right foot on a ruined wire fence. That threw me off balance and I landed awkwardly on my left leg, tweaking the knee. I grabbed for my knee, a reflex movement, and fell on my ribs/side. Ouch. The knee is doing pretty well, with the swelling going down steadily. But, the ribs are recovering much less noticeably.
Perhaps it is time to stop running M21 and act my age (M42).
Strange course from Finland
Aspleaf posted a map from the Fin-5 in 1984. Strange area. Strange course.
Froberg posted the odds for the upcoming TioMila. If I understand the odds correctly, they represent the payout per Kronor bet. If you bet 10 Kronor on Halden SK, then you'd get 25 Kronor back if they won.
I'm not sure how the odds were set. I'm not sure if the odds will change as people begin to place bets.
