Orienteering race 28:32 [5] *** 3.42 km (8:21 / km)
spiked:8/9c shoes: VJ Falcons 2

Map #1 - Club Getaway. Decent run. Missed #5 by about 50 meters, but I think it was hung further down the reentrant than mapped. Probably about two minutes of total errors, mostly due to not executing cleanly. Tough to read the map printed at ~1:12500.

Orienteering race 33:32 [4] *** 4.09 km (8:12 / km)
spiked:5/5c shoes: VJ Falcons 2

Map #2 - Pond Mountain. Good run, a bit hesitant near #3 but fine otherwise. Tried to focus on reading features (the way it's supposed to be done!). Long run in to the finish (650m with ~40m of climb).

Orienteering race 42:22 [4] *** 4.3 km (9:51 / km)
spiked:2/6c shoes: VJ Falcons 2

Map #3 - Macedonia. Struggled on this one, and missed on controls 2, 3, 4, and 6. Total errors of probably about 6 minutes. Map was tough to read and I was tired from the previous two maps. Note that distance for this and the other maps is total measured by the Forerunner tough to tell what the straight line distance was since the map scale was very approximate.

Orienteering race 52:26 [2] *** 2.61 km (20:05 / km)
shoes: VJ Falcons 2

Map #4 - Skiff Mountain - Night-O. Really the same map as #3, but with moonlight instead of sunlight. Got quite confused by the walls near #2 and bailed out after about 30 minutes. If the walls in the area are mapped correctly, they certainly didn't show up that way on this map printing at night. I think I was wandering around about 50 - 100 meters north of where the bag was hung. Navigated perfectly back to Peter's house. :-)

shoes: NB 809

Arastradero Open Space Preserve, west of Palo Alto. Trail run on paths ranging from single track to wide gravel. Almost no rocks or roots. Some hills with nice views from the high points. Upper 50's with showers threatening.
