BrownX course, M70, 5.0 straight-line, 105 meters climb advertised, actual about 270.
Classic West Point orienteering, the likes of which we haven't seen for years. Well, maybe not the really classic old-time stuff as all the controls were in more or less the right spot. But still, the course was about 50% too long, and not flat..
But, as they say, whatever. I was out for a mellow walk/jog in the woods. Which is what I did, though I should make it clear that a mellow walk/jog is the same thing as "race pace" these days, especially on a warm day as this was. Had no inclination to go the slightest bit faster, though I will admit to running the whole finish chute, all 210 meters, not a single walking break. Though I was very tempted.... :-)
No mistakes of any substances. There is the phrase, usually used when the course is easy, "Any O' course is hard if you run fast enough." Can one also say that any course (at least the navigation part) is easy if you go slowly enough? I am certainly testing the theory.
Nice to see lots of friends. That was the reason for coming.
And the legs seem to have escaped any trauma. Though I did fall about a dozen times.
