Orienteering race 1:04:16  *** 5.7 km (11:16 / km)
Today definitely went better than yesterday even though mass starts are not my favorite. I had already decided to just run my race and not worry about everyone else. This was a fine strategy for the first two loops because it was so chaotic out there anyway, it was easiest just to do your own thing. On the last loop, though, I found myself running with George Walker off and on for a few of the first controls, and steadily for the last 6. Then he threw me off by telling me that the pentultimate control (which we could see from the control before it) could be a dummy control. So, of course, I slowed down to double-check and he took off, to beat me into the finish. I'll have to be less trusting next time!
