Orienteering race (sprint) 23:29**** 2.91 km (8:04 / km) ahr:150 max:166 spiked:12/13c
Nominally 2.2 km Brown sprint at Boise State University. Conditions were great with temps around 65-70 at the start. When I finished the download line was long enough that I went to refreshments first to get water and Gatorade before getting back into the line.
I finished 24/42 on the course, seconds ahead of Leslie Minarik (F65) which feels good. I beat one of the F55s (but only 1). Missed a turn on the route to 11 and had to recover; AP gives me a 32-second error, which is probably about right.
Talked afterwards with Beatrice (mp! Oh no.), Sue HT, and Mary Jones. No sense in staying for awards, since I was the only person here in my age group (and Glen didn't want to pick up his).
Then we drove up-up-up into the mountains, ending up at around 6700' plus or minus at our cabin near Stanley. We'll head into town for dinner soon.

Walking (paved) 40:00 
In Lewiston, ID, along the dike/levee which holds back the Clearwater River, from a parking lot to where the Clearwater joins the Snake. Lewis and Clark camped along the opposite side of the Snake River from this location, in 1805 (near what's now the local transfer station, according to the Google map). We're staying in Clarkston, WA, which is on the west side of the Snake. The rivers make a T junction with the Clearwater being the upper right part of the top crossbar.

Green course at Riverside SP, Camp Seven Mile, on the west side of the Spokane River. Mid 70s and sunny when we started and low to mid 80s when we finished...hot.
Nominally 5.6 km with 165m of climb, about what I counted for climb on my route (not counting circling...). I can't believe I did an additional 3 km of circling plus route choice, so maybe they measured it wrong? EDIT: No, I measured 5.61km straight line....
Small error to 1 (overran it), and did some circling at 6, 7, 9, and 13.
Made it back. :-) There was cold water, cookies, and chips at finish...much appreciated. Thanks, EWOC!

We climbed up so we could sprint downhill.

Nominally 2.2km. About 85F and mostly sunny; hot but dry.
Searched a bit for 6 and 7. A bit N of 9 but corrected when I could see the gentle contour detail.
I don't have splits for this course because my brain wasn't in the right gear. After I punched one split I was thinking, "oh, I don't take splits in sprints," not remembering that we were using pin-punches and wouldn't have epunch results. D'oh!
I'll remember tomorrow (which is a regular course anyway).
To the start. Wasn't as far as I'd been led to believe... :-)
With the uneven footing and sharp rocks, I'm glad I wore my ArcticClaw shoes for this event. Thnk the 280s would have been torn up and wouldn't protect my feet as much.
EDIT/added: partly sunny and about 65 at start, 75 at finish.

Goat at Fishtrap in Sprague, WA. The medium-length version (called the Kid) was 10+km (there was also a shorter version, ~7km or so); not sure how long the full version was. Full and Kid competitors were permitted to skip *2* controls.
Started slow, looking at the map for possible skips and picking my carefully around the rocks and high grass, following the crowd to #1. I got past some folks and led the final hundred meters or so into 2. Three was fine, but I was confused for a bit to 4 because I was reading the control in the circle as a hill rather than a depression. Once I saw others heading downhill I realized my mistake. Ardis was confused here and I didn't see her again during the course. Peg Davis figured the situation out faster and was ahead of me until 12 (where she had a mistake, probably a large one because she skipped 10+11 where I skipped later on). I saw her off to my right on the cliff line near 12 while I headed right into it from 11. Skipping 11-12 might have saved the most distance, but I decided to do the whole eastern loop (9-13) and skip later controls. Leaving 13 I decided I didn't want to cross the stream again, twice, to get 14, and that skipping 15 would save me climbing up a cliff. Should have looked a bit farther and skipped 18 instead because I ended up wading much deeper in the marsh just before it (mid-thigh) than I would have going to 14 (just below the knee).
I was enjoying the course up through 8 (water control), then the rest became a slog. Saw Glen coming back west as I headed into the eastern loop.
I wore gaiters and duct-taped my lower legs today, but still picked up tons of cheat grass seeds, just not as many as yesterday. ;-)
