Some overall thoughts on WOC. It was a great experience and I am glad I got to race. The sandstone terrain was fantastic. I haven't (yet) travelled many places to orienteer, but it was definitely one of my favorites. I am getting a lot more comfortable racing with a GPS tracker and ignoring all of the media people in the woods. I had a couple of good races and a couple not so good. I was a lot closer (% time wise) to the leaders than I was in Norway so I'm moving in the right direction. My fitness was not where I wanted it to be this year after a hip injury last fall/winter. It held up great though, so I'm optimistic I finally have that all sorted out. Goals for next time are to be more fit (I have 2 years to get faster...seems like plenty of time) and to hopefully spend some time in relevant terrain more than a few days in advance.
