Orienteering (Foot) 37:36 [4] *** 4.12 km (9:08 / km) +120m 7:58 / km
spiked:5/5c slept:6.0 weight:173lbs

Greenbelt National Park, MD. I setup a Motala style course on paper--two loops with forking controls. This was in the southern half of the park. We had intended on putting out controls but to save time and exposure to the mid 20 F, windy cold, we simply navigated to the feature and were on our honor to do so correctly. The vegetation on the map was a bit out of date and some ditch features were not mapped adequately. With no warm-up, I ran slowly at first, then picked-up speed. Had there been actual controls at the features I think I'd have seen them and spiked more controls. The woods were a bit slow due to downfall and thick vegetation. I paired off with Ted Good who ran the B1 loop while I did the B2 loop. We saw each other a few times though he stopped at his #10 to verify the mapping.

Orienteering (Foot) 37:10 [4] *** 3.99 km (9:19 / km) +120m 8:06 / km

Greenbelt National Park, MD. Loop B1 of a Motala style course that I setup on paper. I had troubles reading in the thicker areas. Experience from running the B2 loop earlier let me go right to the common controls. On leg #6 I tried to stay off the trails for better practice. I started to tire on some uphills. Ted ran B2 while I ran B1. I finished 15-20 seconds behind him.
