Orienteering race 27:02  ** 5.1 km (5:18 / km) +90m 4:52 / km
Managed to come out on top of a loaded field including usual suspects Eric, Peteris, and Nikolay, plus Ali Crocker up with the Portland ladies and Jourdan Harvey, a Kiwi who World of O tells me had good showings at a couple JWOCs and beat most of the North Americans at WUOC this year. Patrick and I agreed this may have been the strongest field in Winter Series history, with seven athletes who have competed at one or more of the various WOCs.
Also happened today: the dad of one of our most promising juniors who is weighing the commitment between soccer and orienteering said that when his son sees us in our Team USA jackets it makes him want to orienteer. So yeah, that's a pretty cool thing to hear.
