shoes: High top 2

West Point 30th A-Meet & 2009 Interscholastic Champs: Classic Race - Lake Popolopen, NY
Green Y: M50 Place 2nd Overall 4th
3 minutes down from day 1. Felt pretty good. Had a pretty clean run, minor hesitating in places. Shame about leg 7-8 as the 1km road option in route choice was a clear winner. Lost about 20 seconds at control 17 - went beyond control.
Overall Tim Parson got me by 2 seconds!

The DVOA teams did extremely well in the interscholastics champs, which is very encouraging for our juniors.

Orienteering race 13:40 [5] 2.18 km (6:16 / km) +75m 5:21 / km
shoes: High top 2

M50: Place 1st - 2nd fastest overall on course. See Splits
Great setting on the West Point campus overlooking the Hudson River. With Alison starting 30 seconds behind me, that was a great incentive to push as hard as possible which I did. Had a clean run, though almost overshot 5 and 6. End result: managed to hold off Alison. She also had a great run with 5th fastest time. It is only a matter of time before she starts beating me.

Orienteering race 33:06 [4] 3.26 km (10:09 / km) +95m 8:52 / km
shoes: High top 2

MIDDLE Distance: M50 Place 6th
Tired from the sprint race - Lost about 20 secs on way to 1, as changed plan from low route to the upper route, but the upper route was much cleaner even over the rocky ground. A slog up hill to control 2. On bearing out of 4 must have veered left a bit as found another control on a cliff within 80 m of mine. Realized the mistake when checking the code, (others were not so lucky). Caught up with Scott Thatcher here, who was moving well through the open woods. Only real mistake was taking the direct line to 8 without realizing there was an uncrossable fence in the way then, went right and left was the quicker option. Lost at least 1 minute. Strong run. Less than 3 minutes off leader.
