The other team was good. They out skilled us. We did manage to hold our own but gave up several quick goals. We lost 9-6. I didn't give up an goals but only because our goalie saved me. I got beat several times.
Orienteering (ski O) 2:24:34  7.0 mi (20:39 / mi)
My first ever ski o. I decided to do the long course to make it worth the long drive (3.5 hrs each way).
the course was only 7K but my GPS said I traveled 7.04 miles. That is a long way since there wasn't a whole lot of glide time. Basically it was like walking (and running) the whole way with skiis on. I am a lousy cross country skier. I rented skiis and that certainly didn't help. I think they gave me skiis to long for my weight. They just looked at my size and gave me the longest skis they had. I don't think I weighed enought to get good grip on the push off. There wasn't room to skate on some of the narrower trails although I could see other do it (my skis went into the soft snow as the edge).
I tried skate skiing but wasn't very succesful at it. I alternated between diagonal skiiing in the track to diagonal skiing in the open area. Basically I tried to stay out of everyone's way. I made my best time running up the hill so I could pass Tom Strat again (who passed me earlier). I made good time but it took a lot of energy.
I could have done the course much faster in running shoes and just carrying my skiis. There were some places where I would have taken my skiis off and run down/up the steep hills if I knew how to take off my skiis. I had to ask at the finish how to get my skiis off.
i fell several times. once pretty hard. Tom Strat fell in the same spot.
Overall, I had fun but when it quicker to just hike the distance than ski then obviously it isn't the sport for me.
