Family O   Leave a comment

We’re orienteering as a family almost every weekend now, if the weather is right. A couple of weeks ago we did a course in the sand dunes near the coast (with all four children). The highlight was that Matan (now 2 and 8 months), who has always been in a carrier on my back most of the course, decided after the first control that he wanted to walk by himself, and stayed on his own two feet almost until the end. It was great fun.

Roni and the three smaller children

Then last Saturday there was a national event at Segev. I ran early and then Roni arrived with the kids. The H35 course was long (10.3 km) and tough physically, but much too easy on the orienteering. Despite that, I enjoyed the run and it was a good rehearsal for the next race – the Israeli Championships.

We then did part of the family course, with Matan again choosing to walk by himself, and it was great (even though my legs were knackered from the race and I had to carry him when he tired). The children love the forest and nature, and of course looking for controls, and we don’t feel as if we’re dragging them with us to events because we want to run. This Saturday we’ll do it again…
