Occassional thoughts about orienteering

The world is weirdI came across this quote and thought it was interesting:
The world is weird in ways we don’t appreciate and don’t like to acknowledge.
The first step is to acknowledge it is weird, step back and try to collect and list how it is weird, and only then try to come up with some coherent explanations for a bunch of things at once.
Not sure how to relate it to orienteer. Maybe - Orienteers are weird in ways...? Or maybe - Orienteering is weird in ways....?
The quote is from an guy named Robin Hanson, an economist. He's talking about how to try to understand something that you don't understand. I like the idea of trying to describe before trying to explain. That's one reason I try to spend time looking at how people actually train in addition to listening to people explain how they think others should train.

I was out between 00:00 and 01:30 yesterday, running in Stockholms bushiest terrain, just because I know I will do it again in 9days...Post a Comment
I think that is weird. I have acknowledged it (we talked about it in the car at 02:30 on the way home), but could quite explain it... Maybe it's because different people find different sources to life-quality. (And all orienteerers have the same source.)
