Red course at the FLO championships (time estimated). Ran fairly well despite the heat and humidity, which I could have done without. This was my first time orienteering in FL, and I like it quite a bit -- enough to come back next year if FLO sets another two-day B meet. The lack ot significant relief in the terrain provided me good practice at navigation via vegetation differences. Thankfully, there was a good variety of vegetation, and it was pretty well-mapped, so there were no big navigation problems. The park (Lake Louisa) also has such an extensive network of trails -- and where there are not trails it tends to be completely impassible. So it's nearly impossible for a course designer to set controls in very difficult places. The result was a course that ended up feeling more orange than red. Definitely a runner-friendly area, which I appreciate. All in all, it was very fun, and I'm not sure that I could have run it that much faster, given the shape I'm in.

Orange course at East Fork. What a pleasure to be able run (instead of fight, fall, or get cut-up) at East Fork. A long orange course is about as fun as it gets, and was definitely the best way to be out in the woods (for me) today.
