Orienteering race 1:08:02 [4] 4.7 km (14:29 / km)

Ran It Granite A Meet. Middle distance Red-X. First control was horrible. I made 3 major mistakes: 1) I watched where someone else was going who had started before me and they went off in the wrong direction -- that person DNF'd 2) Made a parallel error by going up the wrong stream bed. 3) Saw a wall that was on the map and followed it, but unfortunetly it was actually a fence on the map. So I basically had to redo that control and found it quickly the second time around. Total on control one: 18:08 (it should have been about 5 minutes -- that would have allowed plenty of time. Otherwise everything went fine.

Forests are runnable. It's been raining, so lots of small streams to cross and wade through. Very pretty. 350+ people orienteering.

Six hours walking around Mount Vernon today with K,C&E and Leslie. Nice sunny day, but the moist breeze can chill you quickly.

Running Road 53:00 [4]

Out and back down Mount Vernon trail, starting from Leslie's house. Tough run after driving in car for 3 days and tourist walking for 2 days.

Sunny and pretty along the Potomac river. People and Bald Eagles fishing. Woodchucks are out.

Walking around Gettysburg memorial with K,C&E for a couple hours. Warm enough to picnic outside. Mountains of Pennsylvania were impressive. Must be incredible when the leaves are out.
