Orienteering race (Brown course) 42:18 [5] *** 2.18 mi (19:24 / mi)
spiked:7/11c slept:8.0 weight:120lbs

Ran the Brown course at the Boulder Dash A meet in Bear Brook S.P. Had another good run.... went into this all up tight because I had such a good run Sat. and was sure I would goof it up today.... ran down the hill to 1 with the ridge on my right crossed the reent.. started up the next hill and said the control had to be just off to my right.... 20yds and bingo.... easy runs to 2-8 just felt I was seeing what was on the map and was going over each point as I ran...( this is a new feeling for me...It just seemed so easy ?? ) after 8 I thought I had a good run going with no goofs and I thought lets slow down and think a little more with only a few controls to go..... the last two meets when I got to this point and was a little tired I rushed ahead and it cost me alot of time with big goofs.. NOT THIS TIME ..So I headed off at a slower pace and headed off to the left of the brook.... hit the brook and started back down the brook to the right and saw the boulder and 9.... cost me a little time but it was the right move for me.... up the hill take it easy no big goof and found 10 no problem... then down to 11 but went a little left hit the brook and wall headed rt. and bingo.... felt great No Big Goof just get back to road and easy run to finish... again was so happy to see the print out with a good time and no goofs....

Orienteering (Orange course) 1:14:32 [3] 3.37 mi (22:07 / mi)

After a short rest ran the Orange course to get more controls and time in the woods... easy run to 1 and then took the trail to 2& 4 just didn't want to fight my way through the woods ( Legs tired ) 3 was an easy short leg.... 5-7 easy runs... then I lost my mind and forgot which control I was heading for.... I was heading for 9 and got there and thought I forgot about 8.... so back I headed.... I was 50 yds away and just miss read the map and would not believe where I was... So I just ran around like a lost sheep.... should have work my way to the trail to ck my relo... then I figured out that the control was on top of the hill and up I went and there it was right where it should be.... ( sitting home and looking at the map thinking what was so hard about that leg...) the rest of the controls were easy and the run was fast.... But there was that one big blow up..... thank God it was on this run and not on my real run..... but got 14 more controls which made for a total of 55 controls for the weekend.... It was a great weekend of work and I feel great about it... but alot more work to do on reading the land and need to work on relo's.....

But looking back I am not sure how I did it.... It just seemed to flow and I know right away when I was wrong....

Orienteering (Orange course) 1:49:25 [3] 4.36 mi (25:06 / mi)

After a rest I went out on the orange course to get more work..... First big goof was I used a black pen when I drew the course on the map and blocked out some key things !!!!! self timed.... 1 & 2 went ok... then over ran 3 and ran into 4.... went back and got 3 and back to 4 ( brain still back at the start..) made a big mess of 5 ran by it so close I could have touched it.. but thought I had to cross another wet area.... relo... after alot of lost time... 6,7 & 8 bingo.... then big goof went to the trail but miss the boulders I was looking for and went on down the trail... was sure I was in the right place 100m. down the trail... after a long time figured out where I was and ran back right to the control.... now I was tired and goofed up big time again on the way to 10 ... woke up and got 11-16 easy.... I thought this course was harder then the brown one I ran for real...... But got 16 more controls....
