Sprint Finals Festival Farsta - good fun, even the overfull stream crossings (though I didn't wear those O shoes again all weekend). One leg in the first loop where I was doing nothing but follow Eric Bone, who may have been running on a bearing or reading subtle contours or following John Frederickson and Erin Schirm, otherwise navigating okay except for the second last control, for which I went into the woods much too early because it appeared to me there was an expected junction ahead. My bad, I hadn't run far enough but deciding I was in the wrong rocky area and then contouring west and slightly south into the right area let Eric and Clem get ahead of me and stay that way to the finish. All of us were about 4 minutes back od Eddie, not sure if anyone else squeezed in there. Nice to run in terrain without handrails all over the place.

DVOA training weekend night-O - most challenging night-O I've ever done, not that that's saying much. Shaky start, I think I decided later that this was partly because the start triangle was drawn on the wrong side of a building but I don't have my map in front of me to recheck that. Otherwise just slow moving through the dark woods. Except on the way to 6 - on that leg, I got horribly hung up in a patch of raspberry bushes on the way east to the road, then I thought I saw a stub of trail under the course line leading to 7 that would get me close to the control without running through a marsh and spent a few minutes wandering through rhododendron bushes, miraculously eventually finding the control without bailing out to a trail again first. Hope to do more of this in training this winter.
