Orienteering race 17:35  *** 2.1 km (8:22 / km) +55m 7:24 / km
Preliminary Sprint at NAOCs.
Started okay, caught by Emily Kemp at #3; together to #4, but I lost her in the weeds. Lost my shoe between #6 and #7 (hadn't taped my laces and had thought that I could run with it even after they undid) costing about 10-15 seconds. Blew #12 badly (90 seconds) when I veered way right.

Sprint finals at NAOC. LONG race...
Clean to #5 and then I decided to go left to #6 (a good choice); unfortunately, I then went to the SE corner of the parking lot instead of the SW (a very bad choice - 45 seconds). I was clean then until #14 (though slow up the hill to #12). #15 I chose to attack from the road, turned in too soon, and skirted the clearings just S of the one I wanted; found the road to the E and had to double back (lost 2.5 minutes). Third loop was clean except for overshooting #22 slightly and having to double back (maybe 15 seconds).
