orienteering race 1:29:41 [5] 12.4 km (7:14 / km) +230m 6:37 / km

long distance. holy macaroni! i don't think i've ever run so fast for so long in my whole entire life!!! by control 10 eric, igor, and mike had all caught up to me so there were lots of people to push the pace. made a silly mistake on 4 and then my route to 10 was a bit iffy/squiggly but i really didn't want to run along the trail so cutting through the woods was an adventure. ended up being mike and i leap frogging until 20. then i got reckless and didn't look at my compass at all cutting across the trails and ended up wayyyyy too far to the east. fixed it alright but lost mike. oooh shucks!! :P :P finished the rest of the course just fine apart from being totally exhuasted and wanting to walk down the finish chute. :P really happy about my orienteering at that speed. could read the map just fine i know i just need to look at my compass more for bearings and read ahead to figure out routes and the like. fantabulous weekend and really enjoyed the woods and course!!!! :)
