Orienteering 1:30:00 
shoes: Inov 8 X Talon (July 11)
Got through the early tricky controls quite well and had a nice 1min lead by 8. Then made a 4min mistake on 9, with a parallel error going into the control off of one clearing too early. Lost another 2min on 15, didn't see the easy trail route and made another parallel error taking the straight route. Punched the control just before Will C (-2min). Didn't want him to fully catch me so I ran really hard down the trail to 16 trying to stay out of his view. Pictured him just behind me and kept a really hard pace up the sand to 18. The last part of the race was quite fast with only some small sloppy mistakes. Came into the finish in 2nd, and managed to hold that spot, surprisingly.
Annoyed with the mistakes but happy that I was able to keep pushing hard and salvage the race. First long distance medal, which is cool.
