orienteering race 1:33:53  6.4 km (14:40 / km) +140m 13:13 / km
Day 1 at the US Champs. Two major errors and lots of little ones. An extra 9-10 minutes on #4 and an extra 5-6 minutes on 11 plus several 30 second to 1 minutes errors on #3, #9, #12 and #13. I'm not sure what happened on #4; I was slightly to the right of the control and then I just couldn't sort it out for a long time. I knew I was close, and I was, but it took forever to settle myself down and reason out what I was seeing. For some reason I kept thinking I could "luck" into the control instead of read my way in. Did the same thing on #11 after several good legs where I could have screwed up but kept myself in check. Excellent course and I really enjoyed it; not sure why I couldn't focus.
