orienteering race 49:09 [3] ** 4.8 km (10:15 / km) +177m 8:39 / km
spiked:11/13c shoes: Inov-8 Oroc 350

Prospect Hill, Green, 4.2 km, 180m, 15th. I really don't like this place very much (been here a zillion times), but it was decent weather, so I figured I should go for the exercise and practice. Katia was starting just ahead of me, so I let her get well out of sight before I started, figuring that she'd be pulling away. But I spotted her when she was leaving the first control, caught her at #3, and saw a lot of her for the rest of the course. She eventually disappeared up ahead with a few controls to go, and I'm guessing finished a bit faster than I did. Lost a smidge of time on #4 (looked at the correct cliff but didn't see the control behind a tree, then went a bit low before turning around and spotting it) and... #6 (I think), where I went to where Katia and Dean were standing looking confused, even though I thought it was the wrong control, and then continued on to where I knew the correct one would be. The reason I'm not sure is that I don't have my map, because they ran out of Green maps and I gave mine to Jeff Schapiro. Will NEOC never figure this out? It's not like the printing is costing them a mint, the prints were actually really crappy and hard to read. Rather pleased when I downloaded and saw my name at the top of the list on Green, until I noticed that there were two columns for Green, and I was leading the second one. :-)
