orienteering race 1:57:13  **** 8.01 mi (14:38 / mi) +646m 11:42 / mi
spiked:16/18c shoes: Inov-8 X-Talon
Mass start BG (all 10 of us). I ran almost entirely on my own, and was the last finisher (today), but nice to get under my goal of 2 hours.
Too far left on 1 got me there with Orianna, as I saw Kristen run off in the distance.
Kristen and Angelica were just ahead on the downhill out of 3, but I messed about on the way to 4, and got stuck at the edge of the field in the logs, so lost time there. Going to 5 cost me about 6 minutes.
Peter Z. went by on the 10 to 11 leg.
Glimpsed Angelica ahead from 14 to 16, and she saved me about 30 seconds as she was leaving 16, as I was too high.
By halfway I consciously told myself to not push too hard, legs were feeling tired and a bit of soreness in the upper left thigh, which never manifested itself, and is fine now.
So nice to be able to hang with a great people.
And a big thanks to Bridget for the chocolate chip cookies.
