Pretty good run by my usual standards--only one really stupid mistake out of many opportunities (#4). Further evidence that, for whatever reason, I navigate better (even relative to others) when there is more than a minimum level of visibility in the woods (e.g., unlike HR in the summer and Elk Neck). Must just be a "big picture" kinda guy.
Looking at route gadget, my intent to be conservative (and hit lots of water stops) cost more total distance than I expected, but apparently did work in minimizing big errors.
Conditioning wasn't a problem--really only dragged going up a few brutal hills. Still, lots of room for improvement there.

Had high hopes for the sprint, but this wasn't my kind of course. Wasn't sure if I could trust the mapping (e.g., darker green clumps) and so I didn't.

Orienteering 1:00:00 [3] *** 3.0 mi (20:00 / mi)
shoes: Montrail Cont. Divide

Out in the FCE woods while Sam does some more (hopefully the last) field checking. Some running, working mostly on precise bearing and contour following. Nothing strenuous--tapering for ultra-long O this weekend.
