Orienteering race 1:13:19 [4] **** 3.01 mi (24:21 / mi) +254m 19:18 / mi
spiked:15/21c shoes: X-Talon 212

Meet 15, course 25 - Gold Rush Middle

My best and worst middle at an A-meet. I had a mostly good run on a great course by Sergey; a couple of controls that I burnt a minute-90s extra on because I became detached from my map and only one really large 5 min error (I drifted too far below a trail and ended up trapped across a gorge, the solution being tied to me recognizing that I needed to get across and be on the other side of the next hill, I should have played it safe). Even with this, there were many small victories; some nice lines, stretches of good focus, some ability to transition between coarser and fine nav, and tricky controls hit bang on, so yip! The worst part is that I missed the middle of three controls in a straight line and mp'd, 1st time ever at an A-meet. As Ken mentioned separately this week, it happens... Just went on and enjoyed soaking my feet in the creek and the promise of a week in the wilds of the west.

(Yes, and I reveled in the glory of besting Aragorn in the finish split challenge; separately, he could enjoy his nice results from a very solid set of Green courses....harmony)

Meet 15, course 24 - Gold Rush Ultralong Championships

I like ultralongs. This was a good race for me considering lost time as a percentage of the run. I felt like I was flagging at the 60-80% mark. I really need to find a way to pull up some competitive drive at times like this but it was absent here. Most of the lost time was from a couple of weaker route choices, especially in the steeper legs like 9, 10. There was room to artfully cut climb and in other places cut distance without gaining much climb and I chose poorly. Happy and surprised that it was good enough for 2nd in M45

Road running race 24:19 [4] *** 2.47 mi (9:51 / mi) +2m 9:49 / mi
spiked:9/16c shoes: Saucony Guide 8

Meet 15, course 23 - Gold Rush Sprint

It was hard getting out of the car on a really hot, sunny day and focusing, so this was the most pathetic sprint run that I have put in in a while. I completely lost it on control 3. I tried to get moving again was able to enjoy parts of the course. The cheering at the finish encouraged me in from the go.
