It was a good race for most of the race! Mistakes, yes, but also a lot of clean controls. That's not easy running first leg for the first time! Well done, and many years ahead of you. And have fun with cousins!
You've got your first one under your belt. Now you know what to expect and how to prepare. You'll keep getting better and better at it!
I know being sick probably made it not so fun, but overall, did you have fun? That's super important.
See you in a couple weeks.
Yay! Looks like you had a not bad first JWOC and a lot of new experiences to add to you knowledge. The first time always has added nerves because you don’t know what to expect and sounds like you handled them very well. I also hope you had a lot of fun! Some of my best friends are from JWOC so remember this is a life experience as well as an orienteering race. Can’t wait to hear more about it all at the 6-days :)
