Orienteering race 58:59  ***
Brandywine White Clay Creek Red.
This course and event greatly exceeded my expectations. Based on historical precedent, I expected misplaced controls and bad courses. Well, there were misplaced controls, but only slightly. In each case, they were easily findable (although Vadim did have a problem on one, which is understandable.)
The courses were not perfect--two later legs on red were rather silly--but the courses did use the terrain well. And the green course was especially good.
I ran well. I did have two smallish mistakes in the middle of the course, both in areas where the map isn't good anymore (although that is almost everywhere, so I shouldn't have let that throw me.)
I am please with the consistent level of effort. While I am not fast, my form has felt good and I am feeling smooth when running. If I can build on this I will be fine.
This is my final DVOA event for a while. Godspeed.
