Sprint O at Longview. I guess I expected park O, so I was pretty frustrated when we had lots of high grass and thons to penetrate. Not fun.

Also, I was thinking too much about the running, and not enough about the orienteering, so I made a silly route choice late in the course. Must remember not to do this during the Sprint Finals weekend.

run/walk 40:00 [3]

Moving around on the trails at SMP. The trails are rock hard from lack of rain, so the mountain bikers were riding very fast.

A fun visit with Anna and John, who stopped over on the drive east. Very encouraging to see how excited and motivated they both are about orienteering. Now I just have to convince Anna to apply to Cornell...

orienteer race 1:38:00 [3] *** 5.52 km (17:45 / km)
ahr:151 13c

Day Two at the US Champs did not go as well. I was not reading the map in advance, just reacting to what I saw. And then came control 2.

It was tricky and a lot of folks missed it. I din't mind that I missed it the first time. I do mind that I wandered first, then finally relocated, three times, before I found it. I should have stopped and relocated immediately; instead I wasted 15 minutes. Still need to work on this !!!!!

At least I settled down after that, and started to read the map. The rest of the course was slow, with some stupid route choices (like taking the eastern stream to #4, instead of the western one) but no big bobbles. Still sucking wind the whole way.

At least the finish was downhill today, so I had some fun sprinting in at the end. And a first: climbing a ladder on the way to the start! Very fun and unique.
