54.5 km
This year’s Rogaine was originally planned for March 16th, and as usual Roni and I had booked her parents months in advance to look after the kids, but it was postponed because of rain and I had to find a different partner.

A Long Weekend
Last week was the Israeli Championship, and this time I didn’t participate because I was planning the first day, so I had a longer weekend than usual.

An Exercise in Concentration
Today I ran a half-marathon race. Usually I’m not into road races and such stuff, but this year I got an itch in my legs and wanted to prove something to myself. In addition, it’s not bad as training for long distance orienteering. I’ve raced the distance twice before, 10 years ago – but the […]
