orienteering 25:11  2.8 km (9:00 / km)
Fun sprint around Arnold Arboretum. I petitioned the organizers to give me the opportunity to start early in order to get to work on time, then failed to orienteer correctly to start and arrived 15 min later than advertised. I probably shouldn't have even continued with plans to run, but went off anyways with about 20 seconds of warm-up. A bit hesitant to #1, but then performance reasonable except for #10, where I got flustered by the predictable but nevertheless annoying experience of being caught by Sam and veered too far to the L. I dropped another couple of seconds at the GO control, whose code was not in the expected sequence, even though I saw Ross punch it in front of me. Perhaps I thought he was doing the beginner course. Got to work 2-3 minutes before my shift, but for all intents and purposes was 10 minutes late before I showered and changed. Thanks to Pia for setting an entertaining course.
