Started with Rachel, ended the first butterfly loop maybe a second after her, possibly gained a very small amount of time on the middle section by cutting across a parking lot, then had a bobble on the second butterfly where I went to 20 instead of the hub but figured it out. After that I was just trying to catch Rachel. Felt like I was running hard on this one so I'm relatively happy with that.

Didn't feel like I'd ran fast enough during this race, but only had a couple things to improve on: went through 2 stair passages the first run through that area when I should have only gone through one (reading ahead) and then made some weird choices on the second time through there because I'd thought the control was higher up the stairs (visualizing the control circle). On the control at the foot of the wall, I couldn't figure out which side the foot would be on (visualizing the control circle) - should have considered contours. Ironically, the things I was trying to focus on were: reading ahead and visualizing the control

Really had a lot of fun this sprint camp - my favourite one so far Enjoyed the structure - having just 3 races on the last day was great and let me focus better on the races, plus use what I'd learned earlier on in the trainings. Also having the 2-person relay at the beginning was good since a) it was a good practice race before the real races with the AirSI and everything, b) meeting new people early on in the event and c) not too tired at that point to actually try to run fast. Also having the first few events not be actual races was was nice for someone like me who hasn't orienteered since ... october? I also liked that it showed us everything Vancouver has to offer: cute restaurants/etc + tricky layers at lonsdale, quality sprint maps at the uni campuses, ocean-side orienteering at cate's park All of the races were fun, it was good to have all interesting stuff and having to focus the whole time/ no runners legs. (Plus it was nice to be injury-free and relatively warm/not too much ice & snow) Thanks to all the volunteers for putting on such a great event!

This was actually so much fun, despite the -20 and dark factors. Decided to string together Cottonwood Island & LC Gunn, which was awesome. All trails, first part cleared trails and second part less well cleared but through sparkly snow/ snow covered trees so beautiful. The first bridge was a bit of a slog since it's uphill and not cleared very well, and then after that I had to make it up a hill with waist deep snow. Also one cool bit at near the end where I was following a random snowshoe trail.
