Orienteering race 1:00:47 [5] *** 4.93 km (12:20 / km) +170m 10:31 / km
spiked:8/12c shoes: VJ Falcons

West Point A-meet - Day 1. On the "Long Pond Mountain" map. Typical West Point stuff - lots of rock (more than actually mapped) and plenty of climb (haven't counted it yet, but I'm sure I did more than "optimum"). No big errors but probably 7 - 8 minutes of smaller ones. A rain shower about 20 minutes before I started but dry during the race. Temp in the 60's. Second overall on Green X by 39 seconds. One second ahead of George W. :-)

Orienteering race 24:32 [5] *** 2.88 mi (8:31 / mi) +100m 7:41 / mi
spiked:13/18c shoes: VJ Falcons

US Team Fundraiser Sprint - set by Peter Gagarin. Ran a bit harder than intended. Several small errors.

Trail Run 43:00 [4] 4.5 mi (9:33 / mi)
shoes: NB 804 - Size 9.5

Trails at Kennedy Park in Lenox, MA. Warmest day so far this year, with temps in the 70's. The park is a great place for running (and is popular with the local mountain bikers). It's owned/maintained by the Town of Lenox but is relatively undeveloped (one official parking lot, no other facilities, but access from a couple of other places including the parking lot of a local bike and outdoor equipment shop). I estimate about 10 miles of trails and even though I've run here 15 - 20 times, I still need to pay attention to be sure I know the way back to the car. It's about 25 miles from my house, but only a small detour on the way home from work, and especially good for runs on hot days like today since it's all wooded. The place would make a nice local o-map since the woods are open and there are numerous rock features and plenty of hills. Unfortunately, it's pretty far from any significant orienteering population.

Road Run 29:01 [3] 3.3 mi (8:48 / mi)
shoes: NB 878 - #5

N on Rt. 66 to Pitt Rd and back. First real run in about a week except for the occasional run/jog while hanging or retrieving bags at the A-meet. It had showered earlier, so I wore raingear, but didn't need it.

Orienteering 1:00:00 [1] ***

Hang some bags, hang around, take down some bags, count the bags, go home. Sleep.

Orienteering 20:00 [2] *** 2.0 km (10:00 / km) +30m 9:18 / km
shoes: NB 804 - Size 10

Got a report that number 7 on Green Y was on the ground and had been rehung. Walked/jogged from BeaverDam Road, down the cliff line to the trail to find a bag hanging right beside the trail about 50m from Green Y number 7 (also on Blue, Red Y and Green X - #254, the cliff just ater crossing the swamp). Turns out that the bag was one from Day 1 which had been dropped during pick-up. 254 was fine and still hung right where it was supposed to be. Thanks Valerie for finding the rogue bag (and for all your other help). Hung around for a while watching people visit the control and then climbed back up the cliff line and back to the car.
