Orienteering race (blue) 2:10:49 [4] 13.8 km (9:29 / km) +475m 8:05 / km
shoes: O: Falcons 2008

My shoes were sliding yesterday so I wore my tighter shoes today. It worked better, of course it also wasn't raining today so my shoes were not wet.
Once again, I have no high expectation. I would like to break two hours but just want to finish without cramping.
I start off slow. The first three controls are short legs and the fourth one with good handrails. This is nice in allowing me to get use to the 1:15,000 map. I feel good early and am moving well (for me). My first big mistake is at number 9. I just flaked out on the final approach and then got confused. after floundering awhile, I got back and redo my final approach, this time paying attention and get to the control. From there I just got tired and slower.
I did finish without cramping so I met one goal.

Orienteering race (blue North americans) 56:21 [3] **** 4.7 km (11:59 / km) +235m 9:35 / km
slept:8.0 shoes: O: Falcons 2010

I didn't have high hopes but still wanted to do good. It wasn't to be. I was good to control 1. then things went down hill. I went left to 2 and was a little short when i saw rock that wasn't mapped as expected. I ran up and down looking for a control that was past the rock. Finally, I climbed the rock and there was the control. I then screwed up three, then 5. At that point I settled down and the course was much easier (both for me and technically).

The usual 4.4. Darcy was runing at the same time. I passed her several times on the loops through the park and caught her as we were going up the driveway. She ran a little longer than her nornal three and died near the end.
