Orienteering race 48:23  6.6 km (7:20 / km) +225m 6:16 / km
QOC Riverbend Red - still feeling slightly under the weather, a spot of technical bother on 7 and 15, more troubles with vegetation, especially getting pretty seriously hung up on thorns thirty or forty meters out of 13 trying to get across the "open" field.
Dan's first solo orange ended in a DNF - she found the first three controls, the third after a struggle, then wandered on the way to the fourth and decided she wasn't having any fun and might be threatening our ability to get back to DC to see a Vietnamese film at the Freer at 2pm so walked back to the start. Self reports as needing an epiphany on contour interpretation. Also theorises her brain may be too lazy to do everything required to orienteer competently. Still don't seem to have fatally discouraged her so we shall see. Valerie apparently offered to go out on a course with her, which might be very helpful.
