WOC Long

Not sure what to write about this one. I had hoped to run sub-2 hours, but I didn't manage it today. The blueberries were thicker than I expected and the ice made running down the cliffs treacherous. But overall this was a reminder that I currently don't have the fitness to attack and perform in a WOC long.

Some things to take away from this course:

-Harriman is beautiful. It's everything you'd want in great orienteering terrain (including the hills). This area is such a beneficial resource that the US orienteering community has. Not to be taken for granted.

-I need to smooth my routes. The GPS track shows too much time and distance wasted while moving forward. Assertiveness needed in the woods.

-It was surprising how well I was reading the map. For most of my orienteering life, it's been my navigational ability that's held me back, but today it was physical fitness.

-I'm even more convinced that, whenever I move to back to the states, I'll need to live in this area.
