Orienteering 15:12 [4] 2.1 km (7:14 / km)
shoes: Inov8 - Xtalon 212

Course 1, sprint, on Miami central campus. Made a couple small mistakes, like a bad route choice to #4 (north of Roudebush) and I hesitated at #4 in the circle (didn't read control description), but mostly a clean run. I could really feel a slow-down around #8 -- just feeling tired.
7 PM

Orienteering 22:42 [4] 2.6 km (8:44 / km)
shoes: Patagonia trail runners

A really fun course, and it felt really nice to be doing sprints again! My mistake of not bringing my clue-sheet holder probably cost me 2 minutes, but didn't affect my overall place in the race or my enjoyment. I ran the whole thing without ever looking at the control descriptions, which is pretty stupid. It might work 95% of the time to run sloppily without the control descriptions, but for the 5% of the controls that it helps with, you can lose a lot of time.

So I lost one minute on #10, not realizing that it was at the top of the stairs. And I lost 2 minutes at #11, repeatedly coming within 2 or 3 meters of it, but just not seeing it. I'm not sure that knowing that #11 was at the south end of the open area would have helped me find it, though. I just needed to look more carefully at the map. I lost a lot of time there, but it was really my fault.

Trail running 50:00 [4] 5.4 mi (9:16 / mi)
shoes: Inov8-MudrockIII

Bob Ronker's trail run at Mt. Airy. Fairly wet conditions made for some slippery trails and slow times. I got fooled into thinking that the water stop was halfway in (perhaps because that's how Ronkers described it at the start), when it was really probably only 30% of the way. So the end seemed to take forever. An enjoyable run, but I never had a good sense of how much was left, and probably didn't finish very well.
