Orienteering race (Long Orange NAOC) 1:34:31  3.8 km (24:52 / km)
A tough race on a pretty tough terrain filled with endless amounts of similar features. As my times show I did not have a great race. Particularly points 2(23:15) and 3 (23:57) gave me quite difficulty. Point 2 had very weak trails I was unable to follow so I tried a straight bearing. Because of a lot of close by marshes, I couldn't identify which marsh my point was in and got disoriented. Point 3 was similar in the dead reckoning method and again I was lost because of all the hills and cliffs in the area. In all, I should have observed the territory more in depth beforehand and made smarter decisions about how to approach the area, such as moving slower and using directing features. After that I had a pretty smooth race except for point 9, in which I should have taken the road but tried to be ranger and cut through the forest. Physical is not my probably I just need to become smarter mentally if I want to move up.
