Well done Emma.
I only recall orienteering in dust once. It was at night and I didn't like it.
Before you left you were worried about the fit of the new shoes. Did they work out ok?
It was brutal in the dust. I keep blowing my nose and its still black.
The shoes were very good! Some sore spots on my feet but that’s just from the dust.
That 'snot good.
A few years ago my favourite o shoes fell apart just before a rogaine. I wore a brand new pair of inov-8s in the rogaine for 24 hours with minimum trouble. (walking, of course)
