This was so much fun!!!

I felt fit and smart and was just so glad to be out on a course. Tenth on the course, though I gained places since the early starters had separate control descriptions with didn't exactly match up with the course. A change had been made at the last minute to shorten the course...

However, I had some decent splits against good competition, so I'll take the pat on the back I gave myself without any qualifications.

Walking 26:53 [3] 1.19 mi (22:36 / mi) +27m 21:06 / mi
shoes: Pink!! Ice Bugs

A long, difficult walk from the Finish. Happy to see Roger had driven down to the lower parking lot for me. I could have made it back under my own power, but it was nice of him, and it saved my legs a little for later.
3 PM

Orienteering race (WP - Sprint O/Br) 22:42 [3] *** 1.9 km (11:57 / km) +45m 10:41 / km
shoes: Red Fish

FR = 1.58 miles with 48.5m climb

I was the last starter - thank your smoke for coming to see me off. There was a team of two boys starting just ahead of me, and they were advised not to let Miss Valerie beat them. Well, I like nothing more than a challenge. They were very speedy, but I was more accurate, as well an sneaky, so I pulled out the win.

Was concerned that I had lost the race when I stumbled into concertina wire between 6 & 7, but I got out of it pretty easily.

Snuck under the buildings to 9, just after punching with the boys at 8. They got confused there. Messed up 11 by going back almost to the Finish, so plenty of witnesses to that little show. Slowed at the end, but then had enough to get the 4th best split on the Brown course run in. Though, thank goodness I had worn the ankle braces, which I contemplated not doing so...I turned my ankle over running in. Little twinge but not as bad as it could have been.

I love to Sprint! And, while I missed my goal of 10 minutes per K, I really enjoyed myself, and it was part of a very good day.
