orienteering race 1:06:35 [4] *** 6.1 km (10:55 / km)
22c weight:162lbs shoes: Jalas hi-top 2010

Green course at Camp Belzer. Two counter clockwise loops of the camp. Overall a fairly easy course, although about as tough as can be done in Belzer. Only one major bobble which probably cost about 2 minutes. Starting the leg, I must have crossed one fork of the stream without thinking about it and ran up the wrong branch. Fortunately, about the right distance up the stream was a control from the second loop, and realizing it wasn't the right feature, I checked the code. My control 16 not 6 ?!?!. Couldn't believe I had followed the wrong fork, but recovery was quick and easy over the spur. Starting the second loop, the route choices were seeming pretty familiar, and my legs decided they didn't have enough left to keep running up the hills. Anyway, not the best run either physically or navigationally. Mintore edged me out by 9 seconds - there were several places I should have been able to make up that.

Streamering controls for Union County O training this afternoon - yellow course at Miami Western.

orienteering 31:11 [4] ** 3.5 km (8:55 / km)

Orange course at Miami Western, dropping packets of 5 cm by 7 cm brightly colored paper (cardstock) at each "control". The kids began starting 2 minutes after me at 1 minute intervals. Each one had to pick up one of the paper scraps at each control.

Meanwhile, the less experienced kids started on the yellow course, and had to write down a code letter from each bright pink streamer tape that I had placed earlier at the yellow controls.

Yellow: Nate (38:13), Matt, Riley, Nick, Andrew.
Orange: Alex (43:14), Noah M, Luke, Nathan, Jamie, Eric, Noah P, Brady

Thanks to Tracy Pavey for helping with starts and timing.
