Orienteering race 40:24 [5] 6.36 km (6:21 / km) +176m 5:35 / km
shoes: VJ Sports Bold

NAOC Relay

316 controls

1: Looked for a clean start and got it.
3: Decided that running through the forest wasn't worth it, think it was the right choice.
4: Aimed for the left reentrant because I was more likely to hit it accurately, then crossed over to the control. Again, good execution.
6: Compass leg, very runnable, well done.
7: The low point of my race. I exited 6 extremely well and made it to the trail network alright. I veered off in literally the last meters because of either compass error or errant map reading. Either way, I talked to Greg Balter and concluded that running around on the trail was by far the better option. Yes, going straight can save me four seconds, but taking the trail guarantees that I make it there without issues. Especially in the relay, taking reliable routes is crucial.
11: Very good compass work where I ignore the trails.
12: Off compass but realized quickly.
15: Should have run down the reentrant but it looked clogged so I ran down the spur instead.
