Orienteering race 20:42 
Cemetery Hill, Western Mass Sprint Champs! Final round...
Soo. Boris goes off, see the direction he goes, then wait, wait, wait. Ian, 2 seconds, me. Scamper off after him!!! He may have started a similar pace to the first leg of Billygoat re-running last week, i.e. hard! Punched 1 still easily in sight though, and then long mostly trail run to 2, kept in contact.
After 3, Ian went the other way that I had decided to route-choice. Score! Time to try to get ahead. But was a bit nasty and I ended up totally caught in barbed wire fence. Foot was caught in one of the squares and pants caught by one of the barbs, awesome. Extracted self, but way annoyed, not going to get ahead with that time sink! And indeed, Ian punched yet again just in front.
5-6-7-8-9 fairly uneventful, happy to be led into 7 actually =). On descent to 10, Ian got trapped by some evil plan, made some noise to that effect, thought I might get a chance to get ahead, then bam, similarily caught myself... But not long after, got that chance as Ian ran wrong side of thickets to 12 and was going ahead to check out a control on a tree or something, nope, I looked around and found depression. Ok, now to lead!
Safe way to 13, but then lost my lead to 14, which I thought I was approaching well, but Ian was faster by just bashing straight. Hmph. Different route choies to 15, I went left with more down then up, Ian went further right on the trail, which comparing with others after, seems to have been best. So trailing leading into a trail run to 16, just couldn't make much of a dent. Brief hope when Ian slowed to check out an earlier control on way to 16, but nope, not fooled =) Came in with nearly same gap as start, fun, fun race. Probably due to constant competition, we were fastest, in front of defensively-running Boris, who easily took the championship.

Garmin-less so unsure of time, but went to go pick up 8 controls, mostly ones along the river. Had to pause a bit for last starters to come through, feel bad, guess we should have waited longer!
