Orienteering race (QB3 day 2) 1:17:04  13.3 km (5:48 / km)
Day 2 a long one on a new map. Reminded me of oaky creek a little bit. Started 1 minute behind josh and a minute in front of macey which meant really made me not want to get caught. I caught Josh at #3 after pushing it pretty hard over the hill to make up th e distance. Ran together till 9 and then I made a couple of minor mistakes on 10 and 11 opening the door for Alex "Bonk Man" Massey to catch up which he did. But out of 12 I went straight and Macey went left and was never seen again. I caught Andy Hill on route to 14 and we ramped up the pace for the last few controls into the finish.
Would have really really loved a gel out there as I was cramping pretty bad towards the end. Got 3rd on the day approx 5 mins down on Shep (who had to slow down at the end due to rolling that problem ankle of his towards the end) and 19 seconds down on James Sheldon who must have been shifting through the terrain. Macey came back looking worse for wear but explained to us after a gatorade and some food that he had hit the wall on the way to 13. Really happy with the run today, only a couple areas where I lost any time and it was usually less than 30 seconds. A 2:45 lead over 3rd place for the overall badge with a sprint yet to come meant I couldn't paint the town red quite yet.
