Orienteering race 4:12:37 [4] *** 14.5 km (17:25 / km) +1739ft 14:44 / km
shoes: Jalas

US Ultralong Championships at East Fork State Park. Heavy rain at the start, and rain throughout the event making visibility with glasses difficult (both for the map and ground). Very muddy and the sides of some of the re-entrants were treacherous. Not convinced my route choice on 16-17 (the longest leg) was the best (and I ended up taking a detour right at the end of the leg (after I saw the control flag) to avoid another killer re-entrant). Fun race (despite the rain), although it would have been more fun if the steeper slopes hadn't been so treacherous. Bronze medal in my last M40 race.

Orienteering race 29:55 [5] ** 3.3 km (9:04 / km) +394ft 7:40 / km
shoes: Jalas

1st leg of the US Relay Championships, RMOC 12 point team. Kept with the pack for a lot of the race. Was with a group of about 4 people towards the end but then there was a fork and they all had the opposite fork from me, so I lost the group.
Nice weather.

Orienteering race 1:51:58 [3] **** 6.5 km (17:14 / km) +1280ft 13:15 / km
shoes: Jalas

Night O at Mount Airey. Lots of steep up and down. Route choice was about how to avoid climb. Fairly clean run, except lost 2-3 minutes because I tried to take a short cut down a bank in the green leaving 10, which turned out to be too steep to decend (so I had to fight my way through thick to get out). And on no 16 I was on the spur to the south of the one I should have been (and even when I got onto the correct spur I still had difficulty finding the depression with the control in it). Although this run gave me one of my slowest AP rankings on foot O ever, it was still good enough for a silver medal. My two mistakes cost me the M40 championship.
