orienteering race 1:31:00  8.0 km (11:23 / km)
Had a real sloppy run for the long... not so happy with it.
Got to 1 alright, taking it kinda slow just to get into the map (though i didn't get into it very far, cause i didn't bother checking what the scale was until i had finished the course). 2 was a bit of a disaster... got into the vicinity of the circle just fine, but then i just couldn't find the control!!! it was so frustrating and it happened on almost every single control on the course!! 3 was just terrible... it was only bout 100m, but i came out of 2 wrong, and overan it and then... yeh... not so smooth. 4 actually went alright, lots of climb, but i absolutely spiked the control which helped with the confidence after the last two controls. 5 had me freaking out when i got to the other side of the stream and i wasn't where i thought i was. just managed to see the spur through all of the leaves, and then, crossing my fingers, i ran to where i was hoping the control was... and hallelujah!!!!! 6 actually worked out alright, but then 7 wasn't pretty bad. i wasn't totally lost... i was just in one of two places... really tricky to orienteer like that. finally did figure it out, and struck out for 8 which just ended in my standing in a fallen down tree 4 feet above the ground trying to find the control... yeh, i was getting pretty desperate. route to 9 was pretty brutal... i just wanted to get to the trail as fast as possible, so i went straight through the huge marsh at the edge of the map. pretty sure i went right off the map, and 'stump jumping' was not fun at all. thankfully, got through the last controls without screwing up at all, i was just completely exhausted!!
