O race 1:11:08  *** 8.0 km (8:54 / km)
26c shoes: Montrail Hardrock
Score O at Manassas Battlefield. Weather: overcast and 40's and a bit damp. The time limit was 75 minutes, so I actually stopped w/ a few minutes left even though I'd only hit 26 out of 30. being late to the start, I was fumbling w/ my gear rather than listening to the pre-race announcements or looking at the map. I figured the course was such that I could not get all the controls, so planned on skipping the lower value ones. One of the 15 pointers I just overlooked in my haste. Looking back I'm sure I could have gotten all of them w/ better planning.
PS - the terrain being very uneven, w/ many little holes hidden by grass - I turned my sore and perpetually injured left ankle 2 MORE times AGAIN! I have got to get some trail shoes w/ thinner soles. maybe there's something to these orienteering shoes other people wear. . . .
