Orienteering race 1:01:51 [4] 3.29 mi (18:48 / mi) +145m 16:32 / mi

Green Course at White Clay Creek. I was talking with one of the veterans who was getting back into the sport after some time off and he said that he has a map of this facility from 1995. He mentioned how much greener it is now and how much more open the woods were back then. It was a well designed course, which emphasized being able to avoid the most tulgy of the woods, but not all of them. I wore the body armor jacket and insect repellent pants (permethrin) and only lost a drop or two. I saw some who ran in short sleeves donated far more to the 'blood club'.

My meanderings:

Got to chat with anniemac and Brian briefly. Hope that they were able to enjoy themselves as much as I did.

Orienteering 36:04 [2] 2.6 km (13:52 / km) +95m 11:44 / km

My lovely wife got me a new pair of O shoes for Christmas (well, I ordered them - Inov8's light electric blue). Friends furlong47 and others informed me that they tend to run tight in the toe box and will need some stretching out, so I thought that a walk on the yellow course as a NC would be good to break them in and widen them a bit. It will take a few more times of supplemental courses to get there as far as shoe comfort goes (as comfy as O shoes can get).

No GPS track, but it pretty much point to point. :-)

Ran into a letterboxing friend afterwards and I was able to trade her a mewtwo she needed on Pokemon go.
