Orienteering race 53:30  *** 5.81 mi (9:13 / mi) +170m 8:26 / mi
Moses Lake sand dunes sprint-goat. We've invented yet another orienteering discipline.
The red group out of the mass start was Eric, Jourdan, Peteris, and myself; with the short distance this was our best chance to dethrone the Bonesaw from his longtime reign as goat champion, but we fell short once again (Bonesaw is my new nickname for Eric that I'm attempting to put into mainstream use). I made three ~30s errors which cost me - leaving 6 the wrong direction and hitting the road in the wrong place, overrunning 9, and on the way to 15 getting stuck in a swampy thicket that looked friendlier on the map than in reality. My legs didn't feel good, but then my foot didn't hurt, so call it a wash. I've been doing lots of massaging and stretching (and not running) the past few days, which seems to be helping.
On the way home we discovered the racing forecast in Idaho this weekend: Fri - 99. Sat - 104. Sun - 108. 108! We're all going to die grisly heatstroke deaths.
