ahr:164 max:183 19c

Sage Stomp long. Really fun area; I would describe it as Fishtrap Lake with hills and a few more trees. Adam was in the lead till he made One Big Mistake, then Graeme was in the lead till he made One Big Mistake, then I was in the lead till I made A Couple Small Mistakes and got passed by the Bonesaw, in at the death.

Also my shoe got snagged on a rock or stick or something and this happened with some 20min left

Sage Stomp "sprint" at Stake Lake. Basically a warmup for the middle - in the literal sense, because it was randomly cold and cloudy af there.

Running warm up/down 12:43 [2] 1.4 mi (9:05 / mi)

Orienteering race 30:02 intensity: (4:48 @3) + (24:20 @4) + (54 @5) *** 4.73 km (6:21 / km) +171m 5:22 / km
ahr:162 max:181 16c

Sage Stomp middle @ Six Mile Lake. There's the sun! Ran a good clean race and was hoping to be at the top, but Graeme still cooked me by over a minute; he was moving a step faster up the hills and on further review I took a couple sub-optimal lines. My excuse is that I had a mild cold this past week.

Left work early to set the courses for my first Wednesday Evening event of the season, at UW. I was not particularly happy with my designs; I felt like they were largely uninspired and I could have done better had I not procrastinated.

I was also feeling very paranoid about flags disappearing; turns out there are a LOT of people wandering around the campus of a major university on a weekday afternoon. I generally tried to find control locations in dark/quiet/out-of-the-way corners where possible, but there were certainly a number in plain view of major foot traffic thoroughfares.

I had to leave the event before people started finishing but I later learned that in fact no flags disappeared, which I consider a minor miracle. This is a testament to college students being:

A. Too cool to care
B. Too angst-filled to care
C. Too mature to care
D. Too lazy to bother
E. All of the above
