shoes: Oroc 280
Perfect O day, bright sunny warm but not hot. Maybe Spring is finally come.
Started with very little energy, and the blue berries quickly sucked that out. Probably walked 75% of the course but no notable nav mistakes today. Just lots of hesitation, and some suboptimal routes.
On the long leg, first went back to the start, then down the rocky reentrant to the big trail just south of the water stop. Took the trail all the way past the big swamp to the bare rock corridor .. but that wasn't the plan. I simply missed the trail junction past the stream.
From 5 to 6 went via 8. From 8 to the tunnel, took the swamp. I'll need to wash out the shoes.
Fun times. Glad I went. And that's not even counting that I beat Phil ... ;).
Orienteering race (West Point Green Y Day 1) 1:13:39  6.0 km (12:17 / km)
shoes: Oroc 280
Arrived with my O shoes, which was my first goal. Yay. However, did not arrive with my compass. Argh. Fished about the bottom of the O-bag and picked the best of the old broken compass bits, and went with that. Don't think it mattered much. Nevertheless dropped by Berman's tent after to shop.
As for the O, terrible embarrassing start to number 1. I *think* I actually missed on my 1st attempt by about 5 feet, probably glancing left at the wrong moment. But I wasn't confident of where I was, and so trudged on by, and spent many minutes in aimless wandering until coming back to the original spot. Ugh.
Did better after that, but there were quite a few places where I wasn't sure where I was, or was moving with no plan. But the plus side of being so slow is its tough to get too far of course.
Overall, a successful day. Two solid face plants, but no major new body damage that I'm aware of. Yay. And many of the fast guys had giant errors, so my placement is ridiculously flattering.
