Orienteering race 1:38:36  *** 8.65 km (11:24 / km)
Farsta course at the Sprint Series Final Festival at Hickory Run. This was my second farsta, so I wasn't sure how the forking would play out. I followed Clem down a right turn too early and had to recover thru the woods, but I got back with the pack for the creek crossing. I misinterpreted where we were, but took a great bearing from there. Unfortunately, it took quite some time before I figured out I had made a parallel error and had to correct. Not good to make such a large error on the first control after a mass start. Things went much more smoothly after that, which was good, because I wanted to save energy for tomorrow. I had a little trouble with C3, and I had to really squint to understand what was "white" in the clearing with the water control. Saw Gil early in the 2nd loop, but he had a longer first loop, so we didn't stay together at all. George came to the penultimate control right after me, so I thought I'd have to hustle in, but he was a bit left and crossed the first trail and entered more woods before he was able to run the trails.
