Standing Around All Day is Hard Work

I spent the day up Millcreek Canyon at the Jurassic Adventure Cub Scout Camp with Alder and 7 other boys from the neighborhood. My job as "leader" (a responsibility I shared with the Wolf Den Leader who was also in attendance) consisted mainly of standing/sitting around while the boys moved from station to station. Occasionally I was called upon to maintain order, direct traffic (of the human variety) or supervise the rope ladder on the obstacle course. Luckily there was plenty of shade, though it did feel like I was racing at times due to all of the dust. Kids just don't pick up their feet when they walk! However, it was a fun experience and I was glad to be in a position where I could volunteer my time.

Upon returning home I quickly changed clothes and headed out for a road ride. Surprisingly (or not) my legs felt like crap. I guess standing around all day really takes a lot out of you when you're accustomed to spending your days in an air conditioned office sitting on a padded chair. Needless to say my ride quickly turned into active recovery. Hopefully I can get some punch back before Saturday's hill climb!

That had to be tough standing around all day staring at the mountains and thinking about all that single track just going to waste.
