CSU Somerville/Cambridge/Harvard street O. Great fun, but I kind of sucked compared to the last one. We all mass started and after 2 controls I was there with Ross. He was running really smoothly and briskly and I just kind of tucked in, only deviating here and there. Still, I had some problems keeping direction and staying in contact.
And then we got to the Harvard campus sprint map. And I had major problems. I wasn't really able to read things, was hesitant, etc... I just kind of followed along after Ross as any time I tried to orienteer I couldn't.
We finished the Harvard part, and then he let me lead for a leg--kind of a cooldown--and I did a 180 off the map. So, a little ignominious.
I'm not sure why I had these problems, but I think a compass would have helped me. Especially in the campus section, with frequent turns, I could not keep oriented.
