Orienteering race 1:09:27  2.79 mi (24:54 / mi) +59m 23:21 / mi
NRE meet at Great Brook Farm SP, temp to mid-90s. Started late morning, brown course, 3.6k, 13c. Accuracy was satisfactory. Got thru the first 8 w/o much loss, guess 30".
#9 maybe getting on to a minute - seemed an un-mapped trail that threw me off tho I was right about where I expected to be.
#10 maybe another 30", loss of map contact that should not have happened. In one sense, I relocated by spotting a big cliff nearly 50m south that said "don't come this way", so a heads up.
#11 some indecision and finally went around on trails -- the indecision cost maybe 45" - going into woods, looking at a wall and path I could not find and going back to the field, as in "stop thinking, stay the path!".
#12 went a bit beyond and to the north, looked to my right and fortunately saw it about 25m away.
A long run in (440m) - went around the pond, over the north end which may have been slower. Peggy D was right behind on the road, went the other way and finished ahead but she did the course 20' faster anyway. Total guess for mistakes/hesitations/indecisiveness, 3'. All in all, pleased with the 'run'.
Fun as well as hot day. Nice to see old faces. Missed Hans B if he came. Drove along Curve and by 251 Fiske, home 40 years ago, in leaving via 27 to Chelmsford.
