Orienteering race 1:26:36  **** 9.1 km (9:31 / km) +325m 8:04 / km
COC 2008 Long.
A good race. Wore my sunglasses with the yellow lenses and a hat. This worked well through half the race, when the vegetation became so dense that I had to slow way down, and the fogging got worse, causing a downward spiral. I eventually took them off and stuffed them in my pants. Later in the course I got a stick in the eye, cutting my contact and really impairing my vision. Then, at the end of this slog, wanting to finish, not able to see, I do a real bad number on my left ankle leaving a trail, running through some tall grass. Was able to jog in, but at what cost?
Anyway, the orienteering was quite good. I love this stuff. It was varied. The first control was almost too mcuh (as it was the day before) but I think the course was fair. It was tough and the map was not great, but it was not too bad for North America.
A trip well worth making, although did it screw up my fall?
