Orienteering Meet race 2:09:00 [5] *** 11.8 km (10:56 / km) +445m 9:12 / km
ahr:154 max:171 spiked:13/17c shoes: Icebug #4's

US Ultra Long Champs. Fountainhead Regional Park Clifton VA

Most fast folks took the roads to the first control and it was much faster than my route more straight on, but lots of rough ground. Should of watched some key folks, but I didn't.Than to #3 I missed my trail junction and lost 5 more minutes. The course was ok after that bouncing back and forth with some other runners. Then the long leg to 12 that crossed so many bike trails it was real confusing and I had to relocate. Would of been much better if I ignored these trails and used just contours. Finished up the meet and placed third in age group.

Orienteering Meet race 40:03 [5] *** 3.7 km (10:49 / km) +150m 9:00 / km
ahr:159 max:175 spiked:11/12c shoes: Icebug #4's

Middle distance A meet at Hemlock Overlook Park.
Well it did not start too good as I missed the turn to the start and walked about 2 k and ended up
at the finish area. Made it to the start and recieved a late start time.
Really lost some 3+ minutes looking for control #2. After that pretty good but not too fast and ended up 5th in age group.
Another great map with awesome woods to run in.

Orienteering Meet race 1:09:50 [5] *** 5.7 km (12:15 / km) +240m 10:07 / km
ahr:158 max:182 spiked:10/13c shoes: Icebug #4's

US Night O Championships at Oregon Ridge Park Cockeysville, MD
Rolled in in plenty of time after flying in from ORD and Maricel was 2 hours late.
It was a bit cold 37 degrees but no wind. So almost perfect!
Did not start out to good as I picked up the green Y clue sheet and I was on green X.
So after hitting my first control on a rootstock, code didn't match and worked my way south to a 2nd rootstock. I had to ask someone where he was, I was on my 2nd control rootstock and realized my mistake. Took off back to the first control and back to the 2nd 200 meters apart. So with some serious ouch I continued on. Not terribly clean on some but good enough for 2nd in my age group. 9 minutes out of 1st.
Nice woods and indoor shelter near the start and finish.
