Yesterday (1964) and today - same classmate 50 yrs later on marble promontory on right
Orienteering race 32:43 2.02 mi (16:12 / mi) +145m13:15 / mi
Middle, chilly/good temp. Ran in shorts which helped. Good run - went to everyone directly. Went to #1 straightaway but did not see the classic pond I had in mind (how silly is that) - saw a flag but did not check code, ran away from it (as in headless panic?) but caught hold, looked around & went back to the flag which was indeed the correct one. Climbing on the way to 9 made it hard to keep on a bearing & when I crossed the marsh & looked at the hill, I did not see the reentrant, went right & hoped I was right - which I was. A bit sloppy on #10 (ended up running down drive from small bldg); #11 was a grunt as was the run in. Was in first by only 6-7 seconds (Natalya D. & Greg Yarkie), so glad to have pushed as much as I could. I’m not always aware of putting out continuous concerted effort, so I don’t do it. First M65 and second in Saturday’s distance so a good weekend. Nice to have good weekends when so much time/energy/effort is involved in the coming and going.
