orienteering race 45:10  5.2 km (8:41 / km) +215m 7:12 / km
Middle distance with too much climb. my goodness gracious me. Felt really flustered at the start so my first control was a disaster. didn't figure out the map until i was already past the stream junction where i was supposed to turn left... i then continued on down the wrong stream quite a ways until i figured out something was fishy and i turned around. after that it didn't take me too long to sort everything out and then control was easy from there. the rest of the course was just dandy apart from my legs being a tad too sluggish for my liking. i didn't make any navigational errors although maybe could've done some better routes. oh wait, control 9 was a bummer. i was heading down the right spur, but then was pulled over to the wrong one by a red runner. so much for believing in myself... overall, semi-satisfied with my race, could've prevented those two mistakes pretty easily and then there's just the physical aspect that i need to improve on.

Ran my age category for the relay... which was brown!! woot woot!! :P i was anchor leg, and so when eric came in off his red loop with andrew right behind him, i headed out with ethan right on my heels. bolted the first couple controls just cause i was so scared ethan would catch me. ran super duper fast, and orienteered super duper well... so fabulous!!! only hesistation was on my way to 10 when i miscounted the number of streams i had to cross and i started freaking out about getting lost so close to the finish. found it just fine though... phew!... and the canucks do it again! ;-)
