Oak Park mass start race with Presto! And back to Stockton for another day of sprints! The course was a series of loops with 4 map exchanges. I wasn't quite ready to start when we started, so it was a bit of a mess on the way to the first control, but I just tucked into the pack. I'd sort of figured out what was going on by the time we got to the control and headed off on my first loop. Apparently, I had exactly the same map order as Steve Gregg, so I was running near him for pretty much the entire race. Everyone had the same last loop, and Sam tucked in behind me around the 3rd to last control. I was sure he was going to take off at the last or second to last control, so I was gathering myself for a sprint finish when Presto decided to stop to poop. Le sigh :-). I might have tried to catch Sam if we hadn't had a race in the afternoon, but I ended up just letting him go. Fun, fun!
Unfortunately, Rex lost his car keys somewhere in the park, so after the race, we spent about 2 hours combing the park for his keys. We never found them, but AAA came and with some help from an orienteer, they did manage to unlock the car.
Orienteering 27:41  *** 2.7 km (10:15 / km)

Red sprint at Delta College with Presto! Ok, this was truly awesome! The campus was full of little nooks and crannies with lots of tunnels and multiple levels and was just generally an awesome sprint! I had 2 big mistakes in the tunnels. I can't exactly remember which controls - I think 13 and then the last control to the finish, where I just got completely turned around. I also got vaguely confused by a gate that was marked as open but was actually closed, but I recovered pretty quickly from that. Otherwise, I had an awesome time - definitely one of the best sprints I've ever run. Fun weekend!
Stretching 10:00 
Normal stretching back home after getting tacos and bubble tea with Tori. Yum!

Victory Park prelim with Presto! Presto and I headed out to Stockton today for the first day of the Stockton Sprint Weekend. The park was pretty simplistic, but the course was still quite fun. There were some ducks and geese and some sort of duck/chicken/goose hybrid thing. Presto had lots of admirers.
Turns out Stockton has a high sketchiness quotient. The bathrooms at this park lacked doors. After the morning race, a group of us planned to go out to lunch, and I was just planning to leave Presto in the car while we ate. However, when we got there there was lots of glass on the ground where car windows had been smashed in and lots of boarded up windows on stores with signs like "Going out of business. Nothing left to steal." I was pretty worried about leaving Presto in the car, especially once some guys came up to me and asked how much Presto was worth. So, Presto and I just went to the next park, which was admittedly, still pretty sketchy, and hung out there between the races.
Orienteering 14:44  *** 2.3 km (6:24 / km)

Weber Point Mass Start! The afternoon race was a mass start with lots of loops on an even more simplistic park. Apparently, not simplistic enough, though because I made a few mistakes. The biggest one was going from 2 to 4 and then realizing when I was almost there that I'd failed to go to 3. So I went to 3 and then managed to go to 8 and then to 4. It was much better after that, with a slight mis-aiming at one point. Oh, and another point where I came to one of the controls in the center of the loops and realized I had no idea which control I was supposed to go to next. It was super fun with all the people running around back and forth across the park! Presto and I apparently ran through some sort of puppy class by accident, which caused much chaos in the puppy class.
Stretching 15:00 
Normal stretching back home and stretching between the two races.
Running 31:48  3.1 mi (10:15 / mi)

Running with Sam and Presto after lab! I got home about half an hour before Sam, changed into my running clothes, and then snuggled down onto the couch with Presto and a book. I have to say, this is not the most effective way to pump yourself up for a run... Anyway, Sam did manage to rouse me for a nice run, and once we got going running actually felt nice and easy even on the uphill! Presto was excited by the family of deer that were hanging out on the sidewalk.
