Orienteering race (Sprint) 17:03 [3]

Happy with my race except for one mistake leaving #12. Did not consider he outer fence on the track so headed NE to the top of the hill then realized I could not get through. I had to backtrack to the opening on the SW side. That would have been about 20 sex of error but then I had a mishap on the track. I did not expect, nor see, a metal curb on the inside lane and so tripped over it, launching myself onto the track where I skidded and left some skin. It stung and cost me another 5-10 sec to stand up and get going again. Later, I learned that the red surface was rubber, so my wounds were not too bad after all.
Fun sprint. Too hot. Felt it even going to #1. Without any speed or heat tolerance, I had no delusions of winning. Happy to see my friend, Marion, won.
