DVOA A-Meet Day 2 - Blue
I was the first starter today and was alone the whole way. A decent race, with around 2 minutes in mistakes total. I have no idea how much of a disadvantage it was to start first - I definitely left footprints in the snow, but I don't know how useful they were to those who ran after me. Anyway, I enjoyed the course, though not the knee-deep river crossings around #12.
After subtracting the times for road crossings, I ended up 3rd on the day, miles behind Sergei R, who destroyed us today, and just behind Kenny and just ahead of Erin, who raced really well this weekend. It's great to see him getting into the kind of orienteering shape that he is capable of!
