orienteering race 1:14:06 [4] *** 5.6 km (13:14 / km) +250m 10:49 / km
17c weight:161lbs shoes: Jalas hi-top 2010

OLOU German Ridge red course. DanOLOU beat me by two minutes and David_Waller by one. Steep area with a lot of deadfall and greenbriar.

I couldn't get over the eerie feeling of having travelled through time, though, as I re-learnt how to use a manual punch card!

By the time I climbed the monster hill to number 14, I was really feeling the early spring heat and the dehydration (no drinking weater on the course). As I approached 14, a runner leaving it actually asked me if I needed water. Was I so far gone that I had actually been chanting "agua fria, agua fria" out loud instead of just thinking it as I staggered up the hill? Anyway, I respectfully declined, which probably didn't do anything to help my mental acuity as I proceeded to make a small mistake approaching 15. Other than that and some small bobbles on 1 and 10, it was really a pretty clean run.

checking control locations and map updates at Hueston Woods. Found 2 permanent course posts adjacent to the new mountain bike trail were uprooted, so I'll want to fix those before the campground and trails get busy.
