Orienteering race 38:06 [4] 5.0 km (7:37 / km)
shoes: VJ Supra 2012 #2

NAOC Middle

Lost the race already at #1, just like a few others did. More bobbles at 2,3, and 4, then finally got into it and had several good controls. Didn't understand rock mapping at 11, and so lost some more time in the circle there. Good otherwise, but just too many mistakes. Really hoped for a NAOC medal here, but ended up about 30 seconds out, 4th North American. Great job by Eric keeping it together better than the rest of us.

Orienteering 35:00 [2]
shoes: VJ Falcons 2012

NAOC model event. Green and prickly at times, wide open and fast at others. Surprisingly rocky underfoot. Nice to be out orienteering in the warm sunshine. Really enjoyed everything, except for my painful toe.


Made it to the US after chasing after some lost luggage at EWR. Drove to New Haven and spent the night at Rob and Becky's, surrounded by devil cats, who were better behaved than usual. Then a giant American breakfast with Becky and Rob and Will and Claire. So nice to see them all! Now: off to NAOC!

Raid Uppsala Adventure Race, with Alli: Team Sheep on Bicycles

My first adventure race of any kind, and it was a blast. Aside from figuring out that we don't know how to canoe, we did well and had a lot of fun slogging through the mud. Keeping our canoe straight was a bit of a struggle, as we kept zig-zagging across the river and hitting other boats and trees. After the canoe section we were 35th out of 38 teams in the mixed short class.

We then did mountain bike orienteering, which was surprisingly fun. We used Lisa's and Mats' bikes which made life a lot easier. We tended to take pretty wide route choices, using bigger roads and trails, and I think this helped a lot as all the small trails in the woods were super-muddy and impossible (for us) to ride.

After the first MTBO section, we moved up from 38th to 20th place and pretty much stayed there for the rest of the race, despite the silly navigational mistakes I made during the regular orienteering section.

The last part of the race was another MTBO bit, during which we were racing head-to-head with another team in a hailstorm. The other team had a bike towing device, which seemed like a very smart thing to have.

We raced well, had fun, and were pretty shattered afterwards. Some time in the Fyrishov hot tubs helped a lot.
