Orienteering race 2:10:18  **** 12.1 km (10:46 / km) +150m 10:08 / km
I would have preferred to skip this race had I not been concerned/unsure about the rules regarding relay participation. More very technical navigation over the same area as the middle for the first half of the course, then a map exchange and another few loops around an area with some small lakes and a fairly extensive trail network.
I felt good over the first half, and for several controls was running easily with Erin, Boris, and eventual silver medalist Wil Smith. After the spectator loop, however, I just plain ran out of energy, which hasn't happened in a while. I neglected to bring a Gu or anything, and most likely didn't eat enough beforehand. I'm blaming this one on poor race preparation more than poor fitness.
