Orienteering race 1:40:30 [4] 8.1 km (12:24 / km) +260m 10:41 / km

Ran It Granite A Meet - Red X long course.
Much better than day one. No big mistakes this time. I think I placed at the back of the pack (as opposed to after the pack) -- waiting to see the final results. That was perfect for me. I made it through without feeling beat or injured. After having plantar facitis for a year+, I finally feel like I'm fully recovered. Now I'm more confident I can do speed work and hills without getting easily injured.

Wet course today again. Very open forests. I have to say that the orienteering is easier than at home because of the big hills and lack of fight -- at least on this map.

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.

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.
