Orienteering (Competition) 31:32  4.5 km (7:00 / km)
Kansas-Missouri Orienteering Championships at Clinton Lake on the Lake Henry map. My warm-up mostly consisted mostly of going with Michael Platt to the bagel shop where it's nice and warm contemplating how nice is to be out here instead of having to shovel snow (I actually like snow...). It was fun to see lots of mid-westernern and westerners here (Mike & Mary, Mikell Platt, Dan Menehan, Jan Ingebresten, Eric Buckley, Sharon Crawford, Rob, Orlyn). For the mass start they had us facing the wrong-way. I thus while still trying to orient the map walked the wrong way and found myself behind going to #1. By the second control I was in the midst of it but made a slight error after #3. At #4, I fumbled losing more time trying to grab the punch. Dave Frei and I traded leads a few times but going to #7, I got a few steps behind and never made-up for it. As expected, Mikell Platt won, David was next and I crossed third (unofficially of-course since I've not lived in either state for the required 90 days). My legs felt rather dead during most of it. The per K time was good but there were many trails and open field. See the Split List.
