Orienteering 37:11  **
This was the NAOC relay, a fun run around a biathlon trail network that had a lot of target animals in the bushes! It was my first relay experience, and I was feeling the mass start pressure (inexperienced me against three JWOC girls!?!?!?) and was very nervous going onto the start. My plan was to just stay really calm even if I had to go slow and not to take a lot of risks. First leg for the Canadian Junior women B team, I felt like I carried out my plan well, or maybe even a little too well! Since I did not take a lot of risks and am not a super strong runner, I tagged off in a solid third (of four) place after a slow but clean race. However, my team pulled a big surprise and after a 34 minute leg for Robin and 32 minute leg for Maya we came in second, beating out the Canadian A team! It was very exciting and I am really proud of how my team kept cool and pulled through. Nice job team!
