Running warm up/down 13:42 
Warm up along the road at the start of the COC long. Wore Garmin, but not interesting enough to bother downloading, really. *And* I totally spaced on starting it for the race, which is a major bummer!! Would love to see my routes and where things were not-perfect.
Orienteering race 1:31:13  *** 7.3 km (12:30 / km) +90m 11:46 / km
Wow, that was amazing!!! Such, such cool terrain and orienteering. Really tough, no trails, and tricky to find ways around uncrossable ponds and marshes.
I knew it was going to be pretty tricky, so my goal was to remain in contact. That worked pretty well, I didn't have any big mistakes, just a couple ~ 1 min things. (#4 in wrong green reentrant, had a really bad direction leaving #9, found trail poorly to #15, and was more confused than I should have been to last control.) That said, I was bleeding time to Carol and Tea on most of the controls, which is frustrating, because I don't feel like I could have gone that much faster and not ended up totally lost. Perhaps a bit more simplification and focusing on speed on the places where that was possible (yellow hill tops).
Still, amazingly, amazingly fun! Would so come back to orienteering on terrain like this.
Came in 3rd, 4 min back to Tea, 2 min back to Carol. But Carol was doing even better on all the detailed stuff (probably would have beaten me by 7 min), just made a big mistake leaving the road to early to #12.
