Running warm up/down 12:00 
Up. Didn't hit fifteen because I mistimed when to begin and got caught talking to people a couple of times.
Orienteering 1:16:35  *** 9.6 km (7:59 / km)
One of the best races I've had in a while. It was fairly clean through number six, but then Giacomo caught me, so I picked it up in order to try to stay with him, but after the eighth control I picked a bad place to cross the river, and by the time I got to nine he was gone. I picked a strong route to 10, though, and ended up accidentally using my backup route to 11, which while it might not have been faster, was easier and a lot safer (trail to the northwest). I saw Ian there, and was leaving 11 as Giacomo and Zach Schroeder (sorry if I spelled that wrong) were running into it. Giacomo caught me pretty quickly, and on the way to 14 we both caught up with Ian. It stayed that way until 17 (even though our routes tended to vary a bit) where I got to the control first but got sucked off to the left a bit after, so Giacomo beat me to the GO control. Seeing the competition out there, though, definitely caused me to pick up my pace and run as well as I did, unlike yesterday where I say almost nobody. I definitely lost some time here and there, but no significant mistakes.
