Orienteering Meet race 1:05:57  *** 6.3 km (10:28 / km) +165m 9:15 / km
Hickory run,PA Long course First control and here is Glen T...where did he come from??? He says I just gained 4 min. on him...so it was a bit back and forth untill he left me at the 9th control..Some tough nav through the rodie plants/trees????Than the long leg to 12...Poor route choice by me as I planned to go fairly straight trying to hit the white areas with lots of rocks and I kept heading up hill to avoid the green. Well the white areas did not seems so distinct either and i should of hit the trail and gone way around..of course in the middle of green its a bit late to do that. So I was so slow that my brain could not judge where in the green I actually was, so i maintained my bearing and was pretty much right on. Just slow and GT gained back that time on me.
Nice day for being in the woods about 35 degrees.
On was out of the park i saw a little black bear crossing the road...and on to the town of JIM THROPE. I visited his memorial and was totally impresssed about his history...He WAS the Greatest Athlete ever in the US.... enough said.
