Road running race 14:32 [5] 2.0 mi (7:16 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 14

The 80th running of the NASA Intracenter Run. The 10k was last week, 2-mile today. Originally scheduled for 2 weeks ago, but postponed due to rain. Rain again today, coming down hard the whole race. It looked like about 150 runners, despite the weather. The road surface was a little slippery, but the temperature was around 60 and felt fine.

Not a great time, actually my worst ever (that's a recurring theme these days) but it felt like a good effort. Perfectly even splits at 7:16. Seeing that split at the first mile kind of sapped my motivation a bit, although I'm sure beating 14:30 will become an important goal in the future.

In the spring of 2013 I ran this in 13:56. I think that's going to stand as my best time for over 60.

Road running 30:00 [3] 2.0 mi (15:00 / mi)
shoes: Adrenaline 14

Warm up/cool down. In the rain.

Orienteering race 49:11 [5] 5.0 km (9:50 / km) +165m 8:27 / km
shoes: IceBug Olx 4

Kentucky O Adventures Day 3 Middle Green. My run was just about perfect, can't really think of anything I could have done better. Pushed pretty hard, good map contact all the way.

On 1 I was super conservative, aiming off on the low side, but it was impossible to miss. Through the campground to 3, didn't immediately see the pit. 4 to 5 was a nice route choice leg, I went along the creek, then up the reentrant pointed right at the control. 7 I saw from down below in the creek. 10 to 11 I went past 4 and through the campground all the way to the trail at the end, another tough route choice.

First in M60 by quite a bit, I think 3rd overall on Green. Fun event, thanks OLOU & OCIN.
