Event: Boulder Dash

Running warm up/down (Street & Trail) 7:00 [2] 0.75 mi (9:20 / mi)

Beaver Brook Assoc. Maple Hill Farm near, Nashua, NH. Trying to warm-up on the way to and around the start in the steady rain with my jacket on. The air was in the 70's F.

Orienteering race (Foot) 1:23:02 [3] ***** 7.14 km (11:38 / km) +315m 9:32 / km

Boulder Dash, Beaver Brook Association Farm, NH. I started off okay tenatively to #1. I had slight bobbles at #2 and #4 but lost a bunch on #3 by not dropping down far enough. On #6, I passed my planned attack point on the trail and came around the back way from another trail. Through the most technical area of #6, #7 and #8, I alternated slowish and faster paces but knew where I was most of the time. I was really glad to get out it without serious errors. I hesitated long in deciding how to go from #11 to #12 and in the end stuck to the trails as much as possible. Generally, I used very safe attack points that took me out of the way through most of the race and it paid off. There was plenty of room for improvement but I felt pleased with the result. The constant and sometimes heavy rain didn't bother me much though I was worried crossing the stream on the way to #4. I didn't stop to drink the whole race.
