Race Evaluation

CSU Orienteering Superstars: UMass Sprint


1. +00:25I misread the map, thinking I was at control 1 heading to control 2, and so wandered off for ten seconds before correcting.
2. Clean; to the left of the building.
3. Giovanni started a minute back, so I pushed to try to stay ahead of him. Getting to the control required running down a narrow alley; as I was leaving the alley, I saw him on his approach.
4. A little extra oomph to try to stay ahead. I saw Kitty and Tira.
5. Another short alley.
6. It might have been faster to go north of the building; I went around the south. I punched perhaps ten seconds ahead of Giovanni.
7. Frantically trying to stay ahead of Giovanni; I punched maybe five seconds before he did. I took the stairs rather than the longer, more gradual grass to the right.
8. Giovanni passed me just before the control, and I ran out of power in the last twenty meters or so.
9. I saw Sam leaving 8, but I lacked the stamina to rally on the hill climb up to 9. I powerwalked most of it and saw Kseniya, Katia, and Giovanni in the vicinity.
10. I pushed down the hill aggressively and passed Kseniya. Fear of Sam took me, and I was with Katia near the control.
11. Just ahead of Katia. I saw Sam as I was leaving the control.
12. Giovanni was still visible, perhaps a hundred meters ahead.
13. Across a spectator-friendly grassy court and up some stairs. Katia was about ten meters behind me, and Sam another twenty or so.
14. The map didn't indicate a breezeway on the straight line, but there turned out to be one, which I took. Just ahead of Katia.
15. Sam pulled up even with me, so I put on some speed to try to break away. I punched ahead of her, but I couldn't shake her.
16. I crashed on this leg; Sam and Katia both cruised past me.
17. Really struggling. Sam and Katia ahead, but I lacked the strength to catch them.
19. I could see my quarry (now including Charlie DeWeese) ahead of me on this long, straight leg, but I had nothing left. I picked up a little speed relative to 17 and 18, but not enough. I did get to see where the flag was due to the trio ahead of me.
F. Around the south of the building. Well back of Sam, Katia, and Charlie.
