Orienteering race 33:33 [5] 5.5 km (6:06 / km)

Flying Pig Day1-Middle. Not a bad race for me, though there is always a room for an improvement. The biggest mistake was a route choice to #1, where I lost to myself ~30 sec. There were a few other lesser ones like at #6, which took a bit standing around and head scratching before I spotted the bag down by the drain pipe. Physically never faded till the very end so I was happy with that.

Orienteering 1:09:00 [4] 10.0 km (6:54 / km) +160m 6:23 / km

A mass start event at Ansonia. Gorgeous woods, fun format, excellent organization. Wasn't planning on racing but couldn't hold myself once we headed into the woods. Kept catching or was getting caught by Ross and Jordan for the most of the first half. Then Jordan got himself lost and I haven't seen Ross for a while until we came back up the hill towards the end and had a few common bags. On the way to the last control, a bush took my e-punch off my finger, so I spent a minute or so looking for it on the ground. Luckily I found it.
This definitely was a race effort for me, navigationally a bit sloppy, but not terribly so. I expected to feel a lot worse physically, but was happy with my effort. Thanks Boris, Maire, Becky, and others who put this awesome event on.

Orienteering 1:20:00 [3]

Running parts of green course and picking bags at Tenafly. Woods were considerably greener than I remember them from a while back, tore up my tights pretty bad. Pretty cold out, 33F, want normal temps already.
