Orienteering race 40:06 [4] 4.2 mi (9:33 / mi) +185m 8:24 / mi

West Point middle distance race. Black Rock Forest. Red course, 2nd behind Joe Brautigam.

Nice to be running again. Didn't feel great, but finish sniffing and blowing in reasonable shape. Slight wobble at #1 while getting into the mao, thereafter pretty clean. Beautiful cool day with the woods in great condition. Passed Samantha Saeger somewhere, when she recaught me again near the end I realised how slow I was moving.

Orienteering race 19:10 [4] 2.5 mi (7:40 / mi)

USMAOC sprint race at Round Pond. Red. 2nd again, this time behind Sam.

After a couple of hours milling in the sunshine, up and at 'em again for a forest sprint. Almost entirely in the woods.

Pushed fairly hard, but undone by a couple of poor route choices adding extra climb mid-race. Caught Clem McGrath soon after half way (Blue and Red combined): he had picked up a knock and tailed me home.

A bit of jogging round afterward. Not quite there yet but I think this cold is on the way out. Finally.

Dinner with Campbells and Wilsons.

note: It is 22 years since I last ran this meet, and although I only lived in the US for 3 year I still feel a great affinity with the O-scene here. People are great and so friendly, its weird that it somehow feels like coming home.

Orienteering race 1:24:36 [4] 8.8 mi (9:37 / mi)

JK Slieve Croob M35 9th
Another super race, big variety from previous days, technical moor today.
Started steady on a big hilly area, but to no avail. After 30 mins the wheels came off, and it was a death march to the finish. Moral of the story - dont race with a cold.
