Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Friday, January 26, 2007
Are you a better runner or navigator?If you think of orienteering as two skills - running and navigating - which is your strength? Compared to average orienteers, are you a better runner or better navigator?
I bet that if you asked 100 orienteers these questions most would say, "I'm not a very good runner, but I make up for it by being a pretty good navigator."
I suspect, without any hard evidence, that most orienteers over-estimate their navigating ability and under estimate their running ability. One reason is that it is so hard to measure navigation. Running is easier, you can compare 10K times. Another reason is that it is easy to understand what it is like to run much faster than you can run, but it isn't really possible to understand what it feels like to be a better navigator than you are.
It is an interesting topic, but that's enough for now. I'm going to go back to watching....
Men In Black II
One of the highlights of the movie is seeing my sister-in-law Annette's work. Annette designs jewlery and Serleena wears one of Annette's necklaces throughout the film. You can see more of Annette's work here and here.
You can see Serleena and the necklace below.
