Orienteering race (Foot) 1:17:01 [3] *** 9.15 mi (8:25 / mi) +70m 8:13 / mi
spiked:15/22c (sick)

DVOA's Batona 500 Day 2 at Pakim Pond, Brendan Byrne State Forest, NJ. I had nice company for a dinner the night before but our choice of going to Ventura's restaraunt turned out not to be good for me. My entree was bitter with chicken, spinach and brochlii on pasta. I vomited some of it up in the night but not enough. Gayle Ryan got sick too. In the morning, instead of a breakfast more appropriate for running 9K, I had only Peto Bismal. It was just enough to get me out on the course. I took it relatively easy but still tired at the end. I made a few errors early on then lost two minutes or so confusing legs 19 and 18. After the race, I once again got chilled and the nausea grew. I slept in the car while others were at awards. See the Split List.

Event: BATONA 500

Running warm up/down (Trail) 9:20 [2] 1.7 km (5:29 / km)

Warm-up for DVOA's Baytona 500 Day 1 at Batsto, Wharton State Forest, NJ. Running from the parking area to the start on the marked trail. Peggy reminded me that I had left my e-punch as we were just getting down the trail so I had to go back.

Orienteering race (Foot) 1:03:12 [4] **** 6.35 km (9:57 / km) +103m 9:12 / km

DVOA's Batona 500 Day 1 at Batsto, Wharton State Forest, NJ. I started out okay. Never going that fast because I'm out of shape, I made use of the trails as much as I could. I liked the subtle 2.5m contours but not the high blueberry bushes. I bobbled #6, then messed-up big on #7. #10 was the worst with about an 8 minute error. See the Split List. Altogether, there were about 16 minutes of error so this wasn't that good an outing for me.

Orienteering (Foot) 11:32 [4] *** 1.8 km (6:24 / km) +10m 6:14 / km

US Team Fundraiser Sprint B at Batsto, Wharton State Park, NJ. I almost didn't run this since my I was a bit tired from the earlier run. I started 1 minute behind Michael Warlters. Either he was running faster or I was running slower. I got some contact with him by the 6th control but didn't pass him until the 9th when he made an error unseen to me. Right on my tail most of the way was Patrick Shannon. I had two bad hesitations on the way to #4 which was enough for him to make and keep contact with me. I felt I navigated well under the pressure and may have helped Patrick as I fumbled my way into a few controls. I reached the Go control before Patrick but my stomach muscles were hurting from the earlier race and I'm just not in the shape I used to be. Patrick caught me on the run in. Unfortunately for both of us, he fumbled the punch and we lost two seconds in the back-up; enough to be top 10 if it hadn't happened. I finished 11th overall which was surprising but I'm sure that some of the faster people were holding back.

Hiking (General) 1:45:00 [2] 2.25 mi (46:40 / mi)

With Max & Peggy at Blockhouse Point Conservation Park. A gorgeous day for a family outing. I carried Max much of the way in a backpack and did some fieldchecking of things that my notes weren't quite clear on. Max happily hiked on his own for 20 minutes (examining all sorts of things on the way, of course) before tiring and wanting to go in the backpack. After about 40 min of that he wanted to walk again but we didn't let him until we were close to the car. Mostly trail (muddy down by the canal) but we did go down a steep wooded hill, Nadim with Max in the carrier! I wouldn't have wanted to do that. Very nice time. Warm (70F), sunny.

Bicycling (Commute) 45:20 [3] 10.94 mi (4:09 / mi)
slept:6.0 weight:172lbs

From C St. SW, Washington, D.C. to Rosedale Ave., Bethesda, MD. I had left my bicycle at work the day before due to the rains and the need to get to the voting booth before it closed. Leaving in the dark, I road the wet roads into headwinds. I had configured my headlamp by attaching it to my helmet so it needed adjustments requiring me to stop a few times. The newly fallen leaves were slick and there was patchy fog. A light drizzle with my headlamp right in front of my eyes created a jump-to-light speed Star Wars effect further making it hard to see. It was fun to ride in the relatively warm weather. Once home, I entered and subsequently scared Max. He didn't recognize the strange wet alien cyclops with the shiney head who entered the room.

Bicycling (Commute) 45:20 [3] 12.08 mi (3:45 / mi)

From Rosedale Ave., Bethesda, MD, to Montgomery Ave. via the Georgetown Branch Trail with Max; drop him off, then to C. St. SW., Washington, D.C. via the Capital Crescent Trail. It was about 39F and foggy at first. I wore winter gear and my wind block gloves kept me warm. I took my time but my achilles didn't feel right. I ran into Bob Angell who was returning from voting. As I passed the polling place I could see the line.
