Orienteering race 1:16:31 [3] 5.87 km (13:02 / km) +55m 12:27 / km
shoes: Columbia Romero trail runners

Orange course at Five Rivers, with Max on my back, a real group effort! Ran a bit in places with no complaints from him.

Even managed to get one fastest split.

Nice update and expansion of an old map.

Course was fun, designed by Phil HT and set by Bruce.

*Huh - the waypoints aren't at all matching up to where they should be on the track. I'm guessing that's because I didn't start logging until about 1 minute after I started but then input the correct 'total time' so AP would find my uploaded splits.

Hiking (field checking) 2:26:41 [1] 7.69 km (19:05 / km) +135m 17:32 / km

Perhaps last day of field checking at Colonie Mohawk River Park. I've walked all the trails at least twice, many more than that, adjusted stone walls, vegetation boundaries, added lots new trails, corrected old ones and made the intersections true, added some new point features too.

Note: probably went at least a mile more than indicated. Turned off the GPS then forgot to turn it back on. From the marked finish, walked north out of the woods, followed the bike path to route 9 (trail goes under it in a tunnel) then back to the start, along the bike trail.

Hiking (field checking) 1:37:20 [1] 5.91 km (16:28 / km) +97m 15:13 / km

Another day of field checking at (let me give the correct name, for the record) Colonie Mohawk River Park. This differentiates it from the Colonie Crossings park, which has far fewer trails and far more open fields and far more farmers markets.

Anyway, more windy twisty trails some of which were not on the map or tracked by me yet at all. Saw one snake that was not scared of me, about two feet long. Saw one mountain biker, about 6 times, who was also not scared of me, even though I was wearing my father's day tie-dye tshirt.
