orienteering race 1:18:30 [3]

3.1 km Advanced Night-O course. Dithered about going out or not and by the time I decided I did want to go out, Anne had given up hope and bailed so then I didn't have a buddy. I was tired enough and I'm feeling fragile enough that there was no way I was going out there on my own, but Sam Kolins took pity on me and agreed to "shadow" me around the course since he still had plenty of energy after doing the course.

Was good up to 4 but then I just could not read the map as my glasses fogged up big time and I had to resort to just looking at the map without any glasses which means I can sort of see some things like roads and so on but not details. I know that park well enough that it wasn't a total disaster but I somehow got totally turned around on the way to #5. I mean really discombobulated - I was sure south was one direction when it was about 120 degrees in a different direction. Finally bailed, hit something I recognized and then went pretty much right to the control. But probably a 12-13 minute error. Hit everything else without too much trouble but had to ask Sam occasionally to decipher some of the details on the map. So fail on the eyewear. But glad I went out.
