Running 15:00 [2]

Orienteering race 1:06:59 [4] 11.5 km (5:49 / km) +170m 5:25 / km
shoes: VJ Supra 2014-1

US Classic Champs Day 2

I came out fighting, hoping to at least beat Ian today. Immediately I could tell that I didn't have it today, either. Tried to focus on orienteering perfectly, but didn't quite manage that. I made a 30 second mistake on the easy leg to 9, and at least three additional 20-second mistakes, too much for this course. I ended up a disappointing 6th US, and should have been 7th if Matt had been racing. Mikell was impressive, well out of my reach again today. Well done!
My only solace came from crushing Ian by a staggering three seconds today. :)

On the bright side, Alli did really well this weekend, completing the two longest courses she'd ever done and racing well the whole weekend.

Also, it felt really nice to be back in the US orienteering community, which always feels like home. Thanks to RMOC for a great event!

Running 15:00 [2]

Orienteering race 1:21:07 [4] 12.8 km (6:20 / km) +370m 5:32 / km
shoes: VJ Supra 2014-1

US Classic Champs Day 1

Underwhelming performance from me, both technically and physically. Not enough respect for the terrain in my brain, and not enough oxygen in my lungs. Mikell, Sergei, and Matt were impressive today. No way could I be in the same league.

Running 30:00 [2] 6.0 km (5:00 / km)
shoes: Yellow mizunos

A run around Garden of the Gods with Ian. We had a nice chat. I felt very sluggish, probably due to jetlag, travel, and the hives I broke out in overnight.

US Classic Champs model event at Round Mountain. Alli and I went around together and looked at the mapping details. The terrain is so much faster than Slovenia! It will be an interesting transition and a fun weekend of racing.

OO Cup Day 5

Much simpler terrain this time, pretty open. I had an ok run, but had no power on the uphills. Neil had a really good race to finish the week well. I ended up 21st overall, Neil 22nd.

Really fun two weeks of orienteering and hanging out with great people. Slovenia is an awesome country with beautiful nature and friendly people. I would recommend it to anyone for a great orienteering vacation!
