Orienteering race (Marymoor Park) 27:49 [5] *** 3.5 km (7:57 / km)
13c slept:10.0 weight:135lbs shoes: Brooks Cascadia 3

Great race today. I smoked through the course, save one 3 minute mistake on Control 7 that involved me falling into a river. I felt good today. The bad news? I only got 5th and the winner was the guy who already has a win and a 2nd place finish. The good news? I'm still in 1st, got rid of my 28th place finish, beat the other contender, and I can now run freely with 4 solid finishes now.

Orienteering 7:00 [3] ** 1.0 km (7:00 / km)
6c shoes: Brooks Cascadia 3

Training exercise organized by Nikolay after my run. It involved going to a start location with a map that had two controls on it, memorizing the control locations, leaving the map, and finding the controls. At the 2nd control, there would be another map with two more 2 controls. There were a total of 6. I did pretty well. The time/distance is just an estimate.

Run 6:00 [2] 1.0 km (6:00 / km)

Light jog through Woodlands and back home after spotting a potential lost dog and checking the bullitin board.

Orienteering (Farrel McWhirter) 32:39 [3] ** 3.5 km (9:20 / km)
10c slept:9.0 weight:135lbs shoes: Brooks Cascadia 3

Had an O' "race" with dad today at Farrel McWhirter, but it was more of a training exercise using some of the tougher permanent controls. He beat me by about 15 seconds. Farrel McWhirter is a simple, easy map, so I focused on flowing through controls without stopping, and tried to do a better job of reading the map on the run. I am getting better at that. I also improved my thumbing and map folding technique.

As far as the gap between Dad and I, I think I'm closing it :). I beat him all the time on Catching Features, but in real life O', he outruns me, and might be a little better navigator.
