Orienteering race 1:13:36 [3] *** 9.0 km (8:11 / km)

Chase start. I was about ten minutes behind first and second, so I didn't have much hope there, but Hans was a minute and a half behind me, so I had a little pressure from the rear. On the third control I did a long around route on a trail to avoid a large section of medium green (which I decided shortly beforehand was too dense to be efficient), but it turned out to be several minutes faster to cut through. That was where I lost most of my time on the course, and probably what allowed Hans to catch me on the fifth control. I managed to stay just in front of him for almost all of the remaining distance, but I couldn't really pull away. That said, I focused much more closely and pushed harder, so I had a very clean and fast race from that point on. I lost about three to three and a half minutes on number three, and my time on the course was only six or seven minutes behind Eric, so I'm fairly pleased.

Orienteering race 46:04 [3] *** 4.8 km (9:36 / km)

Ottawa O-Fest Saturday. I felt pretty good, but I lost a combined total of eight minutes on two controls. Number three I was a bit off to the left, but thought I was more dead-on, so I lost a fair amount of time trying to relocate only to find I was about twenty or thirty meters away. The other mistake was on seven, and I actually reviewed this very closely and determined that the control was on the correct feature, but the feature was marked about forty meters farther north on the map than it was supposed to be, and I lost a lot of time wandering around in what should have been the center of the circle. Other than that I did fairly well, although it could have been a little faster. It was also raining quite a bit, but it turned out to be fabulous orienteering weather. I'm fairly happy with the day as a whole.

Running race 22:32 [3]

Catamount 5k. Ran really fast because the weather was great and I was feeling pretty good. I think I beat my best time by about 2 minutes as well.
