Orienteering race (NavDash) 19:13  *** 4.3 km (4:28 / km)
spiked:21/22c shoes: Brooks Beast 12
First NavDash event for the year at ECU Joondalup. Without Oscar at the start there was a chance to get a win, so I wanted to do well and was even a little nervous before the start. Messed up the first attempt at starting because I had forgotten to clear and check. Luckily noticed the start control did not beep, so I went off a minute later instead. Good course with lots of route choice. A few long legs at the start had me tired pretty soon. Lost a few seconds at #13 and #14 towards the end of the most complicated section, but was fine through most. Chose the wrong route on a few legs; two I noticed while running, but I found I had made a few more sub-optimal routes when looking at the map afterwards. Still, won the event by 17 seconds over fenry and more than a minute ahead of tRicky. Fenry didn't seem very happy with his run; he should win a few of these NavDash events if he keeps improving.
