Orienteering race (sprint) 24:18  2.0 km (12:09 / km)
Not a particularly great run. I had to wake up at 330 in the morning to catch my 6 am flight from SFO to Raleigh via Phoenix. Didn't arrive at the race site until 445, and since my start time was supposed to be 430, the organizers wanted me to get going fast, and even drove me out to the start. Climbed up to the start, and about a minute later, headed on up the hill, still not really in O mood yet. Seemed to take forever to get to the first control. About midway through the course started feeling better, but overshot the penultimate control by about 200 meters, and probably was a 4 minute error.
Then, after I finished, tried to get back to the parking lot, but the streamers had been removed, and since I hadn't walked to the start, did not know the way back. I remembered Joseph telling me to take the trail, cross the dam, and then get on the road and up to the start. So after I crossed the dam, found a trail going to the right, which was the right direction to the parking lot. Walked and walked, and after about 30 minutes knew I was on the wrong trail. Was worried about getting the car out by 7 pm, so started to jog. Tripped on a root and did a face plant. Ended up way back at the campground, almost at the entrance to the park, about 2 miles from where my car was. Continued to jog to the main road and then towards the parkinglot. I flagged down a car, and asked for a ride back, which they gave me even though they weren't orienteers. Arrived at 615, just as they were about to start a search party.
