East Fork State Park - US Ultralong Championships - Green (F-Green)
I was so physically beat before even starting. Pretty much the entire time I didn't get above a fast hiking pace. However, the weather was gorgeous and I really enjoyed most of my time in the woods. I also had zero problems navigating and found everything right where I expected it to be. Everything was super muddy, and I do hate sliding down and clawing my way up the slopes, but it is kind of fun on some sick level. All in all a really enjoyable weekend of orienteering, and I was especially pleased with my pace on Friday and Saturday even if it didn't translate into results in a much more competitive class than I am used to.
