trail run 15:00 [1]

Dad and I went up to Mt. Misery to practice a sprint course, which I made up in the car ride there. A short warm up and cool down since I had to get home for a lecture at Wheelock on the De-tramaization of Black Male Youth.

Orienteering 30:00 [3]

We didnt think this course would take as long as it did. I had a bit of trouble recognizing some of the subtle contour features that I picked as control points, and dad and I both ran to the wrong control location on one control. We both had a really hard time finding the controls after it. I couldn't believe I had gone so far off my compass. The good thing is that my rough compass bearing was fine, the bad thing is that I ran to the wrong previous control without realizing it.
