Running race (Hills) 29:32 [4] 3.11 mi (9:30 / mi) +230ft 8:52 / mi
shoes: Montrail Bajada III size 11.0

Walworth 5K. Very hilly course, but nice. Small race, only 48 finishers when I had left. I was 24th overall, and 1st out of only 2 in my age group.

There was a very significant hill right at the start, 10% grade in one place, total climb of 80 feet in 0.2 miles. I walked much of it, which didn't seem "right" immediately after the start of the race, but I realized I was running only barely faster than some of the people around me that were running.

Run/walk 32:20 [3] 3.05 mi (10:36 / mi) +240ft 9:52 / mi
shoes: Montrail Bajada III size 11.0

From Highland Park, with trailsnail.
6 PM

Orienteering race (Sprint) 18:08 [4] 1.67 mi (10:51 / mi) +33ft 10:39 / mi
shoes: Montrail Bajada III size 11.0

Sprint course B. No big problems although multiple hesitations to read the map and plan my route, and one probably sub-optimum route choice. (Edit: the sub-optimum route choice was going from 5 to 6. According to AP, I had no lost time on that leg. However, I was 20th on that leg, which I think was my worst leg or one of the worst in placing. Looking at the times, though, they were pretty tightly compressed (example: 11th place was only 6 seconds faster than my 20th place on this leg), so maybe it was a case where it didn't matter much which of the two logical routes were chosen.)

15th out of 40 overall. 1st in M70, and it looks like I beat all of the M60's also.
7 PM

Orienteering race (Sprint) 20:21 [4] 1.76 mi (11:34 / mi) +43ft 11:18 / mi
shoes: Montrail Bajada III size 11.0

Sprint A course.

One mistake, going from 4 to 5, where I got mixed up and headed about 90 degrees from where I intended. I didn't realize this right away. AP says I lost 54 seconds which feels about right. It turned out that those 54 seconds had no bearing on my placing, as the next person ahead of me (Gary) beat me by about 90 seconds.

9th out of 31 overall. 1st in M70. Got beat by one M60.

Orienteering race (Sprint) 17:40 [4] 1.58 mi (11:11 / mi)
shoes: Montrail Bajada III size 11.0

RIT Sprint C course.

17th out of 32 overall. 1st M70. Got beat by two M60's. I felt like I did better from an orienteering standpoint on this course than others, but by overall finish, this was worst of the three courses. Possibly because I was a bit worn out from the other two courses ... of course, this was undoubtedly the third course that some ohers did as well.

Comment: Olive green is supposedly out of bounds. But it was hard to see on the map when it is a narrow area of olive green against a yellow background, and it wasn't always obvious on the ground what would be olive green. Also, there was one control (control 4 on the C course) that was smack dab in the middle of some olive green, making it impossible to reach the control without walking on olive green.
