Orienteering race 59:07  ** 5.14 mi (11:30 / mi) +96m10:52 / mi 26c shoes: Salomon Speedcross 3
Off to a rough start, for some reason i didnt even look at 1 and started off straight towards 2. In view of everyone watching...
Able to keep up a good pace until 7, which ended up being slightly off. luckily i saw it from where it should be off through the woods so I was able to check and keep going pretty quickly. Came up a little short at 10 which meant slogging through the marsh longer than I had to.
Got to 15 and saw Dave Eaton wandering and figured something was up. He said he had been there for a while and Igor had already taken off, so I did one sweep along the ridge line and moved on. hard to give up but also pretty clear it wasnt in the right spot.
16-26 went quite well, played leap frog with Dave the rest of the way out, and I think I even beat him on a few legs :o.
Wet feet and cold waiting for syd to show up so we didnt stick around to help pick up :/.
Fun middle type course that went ok despite the few hiccups.
