Orienteering 1:54:12  9.3 km (12:17 / km)
I may have come last in the standings but my long NAOC race was a personal victory. I completed the course despite ripping the seat of my pants minutes before race time (thanks Louise for sewing me back up!), running on shoes held together by hope and a lot of tape, and being generally prone to give up on long races especially when I am unfit like I am now. I predicted that I would take 2 hours on the course and I took less than that. I orienteered fairly well, just lacking a bit in aggression and confidence but again the speed was quite slow. The biggest mistake I made was getting pulled off my line by 2 M21 runners who were bolting down the hill to the same control that I was and having to bushwack back along the finish chute. The hardest part of the course was having to punch the go control and head out on a butterfly loop instead of heading down the finish chute.
I really enjoyed the course even though my legs could barely travel up the hills at the end!
