BCOC middle. Kind of went like most of my orienteering events seem to - takes me a control or two to get into things, a couple bigger mistakes, a few smaller mistakes, finish with a respectable time but nothing amazing. One of the bigger mistakes was stupid - found the 3rd control easily but looked at the control description for the 4th control by mistake (3 and 4 were right next to each other with the number 3 being hidden a bit by a lake) which was obviously a different control number and spent 5 minutes looking for the "right" control before figuring out what had happened. At 6 got sucked left too early and at 9 ignored my compass and got detoured by a similar feature that was both off my correct bearing and not far enough. 10 minutes of mistakes - one of these times I'll actually run a middle with no mistakes...
As an aside I got pegged as an adventure racer in the start corral as I chatted up another orienteer. The lack of orienteering specific clothing must have given it away... though I have been tempted to get some O pants.
2nd to Brian May (16 minutes behind). Would have been 7th in M21.
