North American Orienteering Champs long distance race. My legs felt fairly good (but not great), but I had mistakes, especially controls 2 & 3, where I lost about 1.5 and 2.5 minutes. I had a few other small mistakes--none as big as those early ones. Thomas Nipen caught me two minutes and got 2.5 minutes up at #3, but I caught him back at #12 and we did a few legs together before diverging on the long leg from 18 to 19. We came together later in that leg, after I lost 1/2 minute trying to find where a trail continued where it crossed a wide river. I took a brief wrong turn on a road, where Thomas got ahead of me, but I nearly caught up by 19. We took different routes to 20 but arrived together, then I got ahead of him on the last couple controls and to the finish.
