Orienteering race 39:18 [5] 3.0 mi (13:06 / mi)
shoes: Inov-8 Roclite 295

Competed as M-Orange and came in first by a comfortable margin! This despite being nowhere near as fast as the many West Point cadets running this course - I was below average on the final sprint and close to average on each individual leg; I just didn't have a very bad leg like everyone else. Only problem was on #1 where I followed the herd and missed an easy trail route to the control. My route was direct, but went through a young dense pine forest.

Though it may not be sporting for me to continue running orange, I think I'll do it at least occasionally since it's fun, unlike red where I feel like I'm in over my head.

Orienteering race 1:22:55 [5] 6.5 mi (12:45 / mi)
shoes: Inov-8 Roclite 295

Red course at Cole Hill. Nice woods and nice map. Did really well with one exception - unfortunately it was a big exception. Between 5 and 6, completely lost track of where I was on the stone wall network, and after a pretty long time arrived back at 5. Ouch. Still managed to come in 3rd overall.
