Orienteering race 1:06:45 [5] 8.5 km (7:51 / km) +300m 6:41 / km
shoes: IceBug Olx 4

Sixth annual QOC Bumble, at Patapsco. I ran my age group, which was 2 windows. I followed a big line to #1, then a much smaller group led by Ted to the nearest window. I ended at A, down by the river, so I figured it was best to cross the river and do the window at the swing bridge. Only one other runner from the original group with me there, and he went on to do more windows, but I was done. A little confusion when I got to the little creek near the last control, but I sorted it out. I was the first male finisher, Peggy was first female. We figured age has its privileges. Mileage is from gps and climb is a guess, but there was a lot of it.

Orienteering race 1:43:14 [4] 7.3 km (14:08 / km) +290m 11:48 / km
shoes: IceBug Olx 4

QOC Fountainhead Red. I was slow in the terrain, but didn't make many mistakes. I count that as a success. Why slow? Hard to say. Certainly tired and hungry after the first 90 minutes. Rugged terrain. Plus I was pretty happy about the flow of things and not in the mood to push harder.

It was drizzly and wet, but not too cold, actually pretty nice for late January. I left my glasses in the car. Had a little trouble with the fine map detail. I didn't know I was headed for a man-made object (a chimney) until it appeared in front of me, and then the same thing happened again a few controls later (another chimney). But I read contours well, and even the vegetation was good as mapped.
