Orienteering race 16:58 [5] 1.78 mi (9:32 / mi)
shoes: New Balance Vazee Summitt Trai

DVOA Summer Sprint Series - Schuylkill Center

Way too much traffic - almost 90 minutes to get there.

Did sprint 1 first to get the longer of the 2 done. Tried to bushwhack from 2 to 3 and found the ground impassable. I ended up just taking the path of least resistance and popped out in a place I wasn't expecting - considerable time lost. No issues elsewhere.

Sprint 2

Learned my lesson; stayed on the trails and just motored. Ran into some stinging nettle on the way to 8. Little hesitance there as I actually missed the mapped path and used an adjacent game trail. Also a few moments slow on 11 as I had the control at the fence when it was actually on a nearby path. I realized afterwards that the clues were verbal and not symbols, which would have been great to know, as I don't look at the symbols because I can never remember what they mean.

Was told that I somehow won this sprint (by 8 seconds). Had a nice time chatting with Brent and Abby afterwards as well!
