Orienteering race 2:45:00  18.1 km (9:07 / km)
shoes: Oroc 340
A bit of an epic - I'd thought this one would suit me, but wasn't feeling that fast off the start. Shep came through at 2, and I hung on for a few then lost sight after about a third of the long leg. I stayed high on the track then dropped into it quite well, got a bit tangled in green going to 7 then had a good run through to 9 where I caught jimbo. Nearly did a 180 in my excitement at catching anyone then got it back together. Annoying mistake at 11 where I was on the right line but got distracted and went left. Recaught jimbo at 12 and had him around for the next few then got away when I took a track choice from 18 that briefly put me on the matt parton -brian keeley train. Was getting tired by the specator control and made a mess of 26, was in the right place but couldn't find the earth wall in the green. A QLDer came along and we eventually got it and then finished the loop. Definitely the longest O race I've done, and probably the longest time. Wasn't quite last.
