[edit] Expedition

When I saw where today's Geohash point was, my first reaction was "That's near enough to run there" - which was a pretty stupid idea, but actually the forestways were still too bad for a decent bike tour, so why not?

Started at dusk after work. The bigger streets were okay but most of the forest ways were a bad mix of mud, melting snow and ice, so biking would have been a bad idea indeed. I wasn't too fast running either, but anyway I reached the Geohash point - with wet feet of course. Surprisingly, the field was less muddy and bumpy than the way that led there, so I went back directly over the field, through the wet forest and home. Not the fastest half marathon ever run, but anyway it was my first try, most of the time I was busy not stumbling and avoiding all the hidden and obvious puddles on the way and didn't even touch my emergency food. Yay!

When I say wet, I mean wet. Water resistance is futile...
