Orienteering race 43:09  2.91 mi (14:50 / mi)
Brandwine middle race. Also a WRE. Giddy from the result of my last WRE race I wanted to have a good race but was a bit put off by the area's reputation - slow, rocky, very tough physically and technically. Was too conservative to start with (giving the area too much respect) and then pushed on too much without being careful enough. This resulted in some time loss through the middle portion. The last 3rd was faster and the orienteering more straightforward (well at least what I thought) and I made a spectacular 4 minute parallel error. In sum, great race in a fantastic, unique orienteering area but I was no match for the challenge.
