Vitamin D

Today's activity... Orienteering at Lake Needwood... Taking in some much needed Vitamin D on this gorgeous day!!!


Not only was it a beautiful day for running in the woods but the course was also fun... Lots of neat control features...


I think this car has seen better days!!!  Great spot for a control Greg and Kathleen (the course setters)!!!  And thank you to the young boy who took this picture for me while waiting at the control for his Dad!!!

My favorite moment of the day... When I walked by a little boy (5 years old maybe) who was orienteering with his family, he whispered, "there's one up there" as he pointed up the hill to the right of me... So cute!!!  I took this handstand on the hill for him... 


My favorite line of the day... "I feel like I'm in Dirty Dancing" said the girl in front of me as she crossed this log...


P.S. This was the only place to cross the river without getting wet on this part of the course.  It helps to run into the course setter who just happened to be out taking pictures at the moment I was looking for a way to cross... There was no cheating involved because I had already completed my course and was just out taking handstand pictures!

This next pic is a view of the sprint to the finish...


So fun!!!  And last but not least, the finish...


Thank you to all of the volunteers at Quantico Orienteering Club for making these events happen... I am so lucky to be part of such an amazing group!!!
