orienteering race 16:30 [5] *** 2.5 km (6:36 / km)
20c weight:162lbs shoes: Icebug Spirit OLX

Sprint course 3 at Armco Park. Couldn't have been a whole lot cleaner. A fun course; the quick little decisions kept coming.

orienteering race 15:06 [5] *** 2.3 km (6:34 / km)
15c shoes: Icebug Spirit OLX

Sprint number 2 at Armco. Again pretty clean but lost about ten seconds (felt like a LOT longer) searching for my glasses when a branch caught and flung them as I cut through the thick patch midway between 5 and 6. The one time I had forgotten to put my usual piece of pink or orange survey tape on them, and they really hid in the honeysuckle!

The last two controls were shared with course 3. Here you see what the motivation of hot pursuit can do, as I ran shoulder to shoulder with Jordan while trying to run down Cedarcreek. Last control was 18 seconds vs 21 on course 3, and the finish was 40 seconds compared to 42. Cedarcreek found a little extra gas in his tank, and I couldn't quite catch him, but Jordan had enough left for a break-away 32 second run-in, taking him in the final 20 or 30 meters.

3 PM

walking 15:00 [1] * 0.6 mi (24:59 / mi)
2c

Big Bone Lick SP. Checked locations to move 2 of the permanent course controls. Walked to one on my own; the other closer one with the park manager. (1 control has to be moved due to the need to close part of a service road adjacent to the bison pasture to public use. Any place the public can access has to have a second low fence to keep people away from the main fence. Rather than add a long section of additional fence, it is easier and cheaper to gate off the road.)
6 PM

orienteering race 38:24 [4] *** 3.0 km (12:48 / km)
18c weight:161lbs shoes: Icebug Spirit OLX

OLOU Long sprint at Cherokee Park. 3 km straight line distance, but uncrossable obstacles like I 64, a large stream, and high fences probably made it more like 5 km. Cool, dark tunnel under I 64, although wading through the shin deep water for halfway through it and not knowing what might be in it was, uhm, interesting.

orienteering 10:00 [2] ** 1.0 km (10:00 / km)
shoes: Icebug Spirit OLX

Hasty search for a grandmother after the two very young girls doing the course with her separated from her, but showed up safe and sound back at the finish. There was concern that she might be in a panic trying to find them.
7 PM
