Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Tio Mila adviceBoris is running his first Tio Mila this weekend. He's running the short, unforked, 8th leg. He should be going out at about 6 a.m.
I spent a little time thinking about advice for a first Tio Mila. I've run the race 4 times. Three of those times I ran an early morning leg. Once I ran a night leg.
I could come up with lots of advice, but then it occurred to me that a key bit of advice would be:
Don't pay too much attention to people giving you advice.
It is worth seeking out advice, but paying too much attention just isn't worth the trouble. You'll find people giving contrary advice. People who think one thing is absolutely essential, but others who think that same thing is meaningless.
I think taking advice with a grain of salt is, well, good advice. posted by Michael | 8:00 PM
