Orienteering 1:28:00 [3] 7.46 km (11:48 / km)
ahr:157 max:172 shoes: Crocs #1

7.46km on a 5.5km Green course 136%
Was finishing up tying my first ankle brace when I realized I forgot my shoes :[ Ok, whatever, I'll do it in Crocs (only thing I had) After the first control, it started raining. By the time I found the second control, I could see better without my glasses than with them (and that says it all) I held my glasses in my hand for the next hour trying to make my way through the wet woods. Then to top it off, as I approached the second to last control, I saw Petr in front of me and followed him as I was looking for an excuse to not look at my map. Well, #!*%, red had a different last control than green and I never bothered checking (not that I could read much anyway)
It was very slippery with the Crocs and I dont know if I would do that again... at least not in a steady rain :)
Oh, yea... one more thing. I never realized I MisPunched until I got home and showed Patty how far I had to walk (in the rain) to get back to registration. That just made the whole day a complete fail.
So, what did I learn? Orienteering is an outdoor sport and rain requires a whole new game plan.

5:17pm Wait, it gets better. (I really shouldn't be typing this as no one will take me seriosly as a good orienteerer) I was looking over the map to see where my gps track was saying I went and saw the map was 15,000! (anniemac, I think I just trumped your O-whine) I ran the whole thing assuming it was 10,000. Makes sense why I was coming up short on all my pace counts :)
