Orienteering 29:04 [3] **** 4.09 km (7:06 / km) +10m 7:01 / km
shoes: Brooks Ghost 10

Sprint: Blue

So I was telling people after the race that I incorrectly punched a first control on the red course, and I thought that was my mispunch. I don't think it was, I wouldn't be disqualified for that, would I?

Now looking at my GPS, it looks like I didn't visit control 9. I was a little stunned by this at first, but I think I know what happened. I was actively trying to plan ahead during the race (not something I would typically do), and as I was planning ahead, I must of lost track of which control I was on. I don't think that has ever happened to me before, as I would typically just work one leg at a time (although, I must have mispunched somewhere before, my memory is certainly faulty).

Anyway, I really love sprints, and I hadn't done one in a long time. So this was worth it, and I really enjoyed it. Great to see friends too.
