Greenbelt Park Perimeter Trail at noon. Cool and sunny. There was some leaf cover, some bare sections, some mud.

Orienteering race 26:00 [5] 3.0 km (8:40 / km) +120m 7:13 / km

IMid-Atlantics Relay. I ran in a 9-point family team, with Florence leading off, Addie second, and me on the third leg. Florence struggled with an early control and put us well behind. Addie may have picked up a couple of places, I couldn't really tell. She handed off to me, and I followed Gavin Wiese to #1, but I didn't punch it, becauseI thought we were still short of the control. But I backtracked, punched, and by that point Rick Oliver caught and passed me. But I passed him back on the way to 3, stayed ahead and caught Gavin at #6. The three of us ran together for the next 4 controls. I fell behind the other two at #9, which I misread, and we finished Gavin-Rick-me. It was really fun,

Orienteering 30:06 [5] 3.6 km (8:22 / km) +94m 7:24 / km
shoes: Spirit OLX (last)

Mid-Atlanic Champs, hosted by QOC at Seneca Creek State Park. We negotiated the use of the Smokey Glen Farms facilities and fields, and it was a very fine venue for this event. The classic race was an NRE. For the Mid-Atlantics, the top 5 M and F on each course scored points. In the afternoon was a club relay, with a handicap based on points, so the top 10 relay teams scored points.

After taking a shift at the starts, I ran Brown, and run I did. On the way to #1, I hit the fence pretty hard. I was running downhill and looking at the map, and I bounced off it like a trampoline. Nothing injured. A little time lost on #3, thought I was heading for the elevated field but got into the marsh to the west instead. On the next leg I didn't like the passage at the foot of the hill, so I went up to the field, ran right along the edge of the escarpment, then headed down into the flood plain and got the control easily. Between 8 and 9 I got tangled up in some barbed wire, stumbled and nearly fell, and gouged my leg as I was pulling out of it.

My only loss of map contact was on the way to #3, and I ran fast almost everywhere else, winning Brown by a large margin.
