Orienteering 4:25:02  19.68 mi (13:28 / mi)
shoes: New Balance 473 pair 2
Longest orienteering course I've ever ran. I ran most of it in a group, although my group changed when Jon Torrance (who won last year, but only came in 7th this year) powered ahead of me on 6 to 7 and when the group I caught up to (after meeting another orienteer) shrank down to three, one of whom was Alex Reiter. On the final map, James (the other group member) and I did most of the navigating, while Alex corrected us on the second-to-last control. Came in 9th, a good finish and the fastest on our team. A comforting thought: I would have had to have cut out 20 minutes to move up one rank. Biggest error was following someone to the finish for a shorter course when I knew he was going the wrong direction for our course.
Straightline: 26.2km, so I only ran 21% extra
