Orienteering race 44:53  6.8 km (6:36 / km)
QOC Beer chase - first, just over a minute ahead of Eddie, who was just over a minute ahead of Peter Bjorgul. People were pretty bunched together through 5 controls on the first loop, though I might have got away on the leg from 3 to 4 if I hadn't messed up 4 and let the pack catch back up. From 5, Eddie and I exited together to start the long leg but he then took a line somewhat more to the right and apparently drifted even more to the right than he'd intended. He said he could see me punching control 6 as he was climbing up towards it. Peter was also in view as I exited that control. After that, I saw no one other than Eddie approaching the third last control of the last loop, since my route choice to the next control made that a big dogleg. Warm but nowhere near as oppressively so as the last time we held the Chase at McKeldin.
