Interesting time. Preceding warning, no flags. Did not know that until figured it out. Aimed left, hit the hills in the green, then the bare rock spur. Compass straight in, but. Not confident in my location. Didn't find the flag, but it was a technical area so I thought I might be in the wrong spot. Tried to attack again from the bare rock hill with two knolls on it, no success. Back to the hill in the green again. Attacked 42, figured out there were no flags and headed back to the start because I thought I was out too long. I wasn't, I was the first one back.

Orienteering 10:00 [3]

Didn't track it other than putting on a timer, explored a bit. Headed south, eventually got to the open clearing, orienteered to 62, back to start.

Jukola leg three! Started at 2:43 in the morning, made mistakes on first and second control but then settled and had a good race for the rest, with maybe two mistakes, both under 40 seconds. Route coloured in pink.

Note

Jukola was a ton of fun. I'd heard news of pine branches whooping you in the face and leaving you half blind, but it wasn't that bad in my leg, maybe I avoided it. The beginning of the course was so annoying, green area a lot of people were screwing up, and I did not escape the list of the duped.

In other news, Jan Erik had a good race. We're all quite certain of it since he crashed into the tent excitedly about half an hour after midnight rambling about his fantastic race. He was probably quite tired, a very tired excited that came tumbling out as words. Props to him, his race really was good.

Sarah really stepped up to the plate, and along with the third leg in Venla, she also replaced Emma and ran the 4th leg in Jukola. Mad props to her, she may have started hurting but she ran a ton over the weekend.

We're all at Vierumäki now and are heading over to Tampere tomorrow and doing an easy training. Dylan will head back to Helsinki and head home, he did well in Jukola as well. Soon after he started, it started raining, and it didn't stop until when he was just about done. Having a better placing next year will help a little with the pain of the start shoot.

Jan Erik led us in some yoga, and the bugs were absolutely vicious. I feel relatively loose right now, so I think it was a success, although measured against how many times I was bitten maybe not. Christian is joining us soon, and he's hella sick, so there's something to be careful about. Time to look at my splits for Jukola! Very quick update, nothing big had happened.

TL;DR: Jukola was big, it was fun.
