Meet 1/Race 1
Started fine, irritated by the tree hopping and honeysuckle on the way to C4 that just got worse until I eventually sharpened up and escaped on the way to C6 after having run into a barbed wire fence. Worst leg was a poorly executed leg that should have been easy to C7. Began to mellow out on the way to 8 and the rest of the day was ok. Clipped a sharp honeysuckle branch later in the course (C16?) and really ripped up my pants and leg in two spots. Someone once told me that orienteering was a blood sport; I at least looked like I was living the dream. Fell to Aragorn by 90s, a good way for him to start the year.
