Orienteering race 2:30:00 [3]

EMPO club meet at Moreau; Green course; 3.9 km, 12 controls. Time 1:41:38;
actual distance 5.6 km. Pretty good outing. Mostly used marshes even when they took me off course a bit - strategy worked pretty well. Missed 2 controls - kind of lost track of things which is deadly at Moreau, and wandered around a bit. On both occasions there wasn't much to help relocate and had just made the decision to head back to the nearest trail (which wasn't very near) when I fortunately noticed the flag not too far away. Not a great time - don't know the overall results yet but most Red runners were way faster - but just poked along and was happy to find everything pretty well. It can be a scary experience getting lost up there. Great courses set by Gabor and nice spring day to be out!
