Orienteering race 19:01 [3] 2.55 km (7:28 / km) +8m 7:21 / km
shoes: Ascis 2000 May 2018

Gosnells Council office and park

Nice little area that I had not been to before, well set courses by Ken Brownlie. Ran (well jogged) the short course no big mistakes but maybe a couple of routes could have been slightly shorter. Did not see the northern route 2-3, ran low on the sealed path 3-4

A bit out of touch at the start I forgot:

My pre-paid card, SI & Stick for registration
My GPS as I went to the start
And then started and went 5m and the lights came on that I needed to pick up a map

Followed by the OWA AGM where I stood down as President after two enjoyable years. I had decided long ago that I was not standing again. At present no one had been elected as President but there is a VP, Treasurer and Secretary so I am sure they will carry it forward.

Energy levels good, just no speed or sustained running
