Orienteering Meet race 1:24:20 [5] *** 6.8 km (12:24 / km) +110m 11:28 / km

NAOC Long Champs. Another poor performance. We did have an awesome time Sat. night, great beer, food, company and we had an irish bar with a hgih energy irish band playing on JP's birthday. But the course and woods were extremely nice. It did get hard to read the map as it was so damp in the woods I had to take the glasses off and just go blind most of the time. It was really a great 4 days of orienteering and 2 new circles on my US map on the wall for places I have been for O. I would come back soon and the 12.5 hour drive from Syracause was not to bad. I did get home befroe 1:00AM.

Orienteering Meet race 1:15:21 [5] ***** 4.1 km (18:23 / km) +98m 16:25 / km

NOAC Middle Champs Salmon River Fish Hatchery.
Ok the rain is coming down, buts its not cold. I decided to dump the reading glasses at the very last minute. Bad mistake. This map was very detailed and hard to read. First 3 controls went good, than it was lights out after that. Totally by #7 I could not read if it was an up or down in the green part of the map. I thought it was a ridge and it was a depression....
I was totally out of it by #8 and made it in in a very poor time and performance.

Orienteering Meet race 12:44 [5] *** 1.8 km (7:04 / km) +50m 6:13 / km

North American sprint champs prelim 1. It was fast and easy. One mistake at #5 when I did not see the trail and lost 45 seconds in the green.
This put me in 2nd place in M-55.

Orienteering Meet race 24:01 [5] *** 3.5 km (6:52 / km)

Ok some one was playing a big joke with me and put me in the top 15 Elite Sprinters for the big show. This was not that funny with me, but i took my challange with a grain of salt. It was making me nervous and I was not sure that I should be in this, but there were other age group (older) guys in this. Well i thought we would all be on the same course and Maricel started 30 seconds before me and headed left.I picked up my map and started to head left opps I needed to head right. Ok in front of all the spectators. I also had to figure out the punching routine special for the green runner that turned into another buffon in front of everyone. I did end up beating Glen T for 1st ??? unofficial.
It was strange being put in high regard, but others just did not want to run the 3rd loop is the best I could figure. No one asked me if i wanted to be in the elite sprints. overall I am sure I was last of the 15 not sure about the 10 women who ran.

Orienteering Meet race 1:28:25 [4] 8.0 km (11:03 / km)

Mendon Ponds Rochester Orienteering club thursday dusk meet.
It was a 1 hour score O, but Joe and i decided to sweep the course no matter how much time it took. It was a nice map with lots of trails. I made my loop around the lake. A little slow at the start due to heavy day of driving, big burger lunch and too many brews the night before. I did not plan on the run a very good strategy for sweeping the course.

Road Riding 1:00:00 [3] 12.0 mi (5:00 / mi)

Ride with my old buddy Waddell from South Lyons MI. We rode from his house 2 miles and did the 8 mile loop at Kennseton Park. I rode quite simply the worst road bike still around. I told him I would look for a cheap gararge sale bike if he threw this one out to the recycle bin. It was bad , but I rode it. Nice day with fog over the lake till near the end.

Running 1:00:00 [3] 7.0 mi (8:34 / mi)

Ran from my aunt's house and found a short trail in her sub. Than out to run by some big homes to a farm. turned around and headed back.
Long run for me and tight.
