Orienteering race (Foot) 17:18  2.48 km (6:59 / km)
CYNO: Red Sprint. I was late getting started due to watching Max and getting him into the daycare. I didn't have time to get my control descriptions into the holder which I ran with empty. There was no warm-up. Once started (about 8 minutes past my scheduled start), I slowly got into the map. I stopped early on the way to the first control, drawn by one on a tree. Going to #2 things didn't make much sense until I got over the berm. I saw Vadim pass and didn't try to push too hard. I was fairly clean up until #5 where I was off just a bit. A couple people converged at this point so I was on a train with Alan, J. Goodman and another junior. I was mostly at the tail end and stopped at each control to unfold my map and check controls. However on the second to last control, the end was so near and I'd just broken contact so I didn't stop to check the control number. Things didn't quite look right and I went on anyway. Had I checked, I could have noticed that I was at the wrong control. I think the mispunch may have cost me first place in +M45.

CNYO. I had an early start due to my mispunch on the sprint. I ran fairly clean until #9. Leaving the trail at a bend, I must have just ran over the top of the control. I then got distracted by another control and even went past that when I found out it wasn't mine. I fumbled a bit at #10 then caught-up to Jim Rayburn and another guy. Our troop exchanged leadse together most of the rest of the way back. I fumbled a few finishing-up. See the Split List.
