Orienteering race (relay) 26:06 [4] *** 1.86 km (14:02 / km) +90m 11:18 / km
spiked:10/12c shoes: Jala Jukola Spider 6 (old)

12-pt team leg 2 (Yellow course) -- Since the leg to # 1 was practically all uphill, I proceeded to bobble it because I'm not strong on hills and go temporarily brain-dead and make bad decisions. Ugh. Couple of minutes lost there.

My plan had been to stay on the trail until I reached the point, but the angle of the trail offered the opportunity to short-cut (if you used your compass properly). I managed to miss it by a good margin (~100m) but when I realized the control I found was not my control # (good thing I remembered to check!), I quickly relocated and got back on course.

Fortunately, the only other place to go brain-dead due to climb was near the finish, which had been properly explained by Peter G. so I knew where to go without having to look at my map.

[Edited, because I couldn't read the small print:] I pulled our team up from 5th to 4th place, Phil kept us there, then Glen's phenomenal 4th leg run (and Craig W's error) pulled us up to 3rd for our club's first medal at a relay champs! Woohoo!!!
