Orienteering 28:00 [3]

Training in the neighborhood. It was essentially a circle with two cross trails. We then ran a ski-o course with left-right decisions. Before we went out, dad determined which controls went where. It was a lot of fun!

Run with Ethan. We moved along pretty well. We stopped for a rest in the middle for 2:30 so we both could stretch. We ran a pretty good pace back too. 15:30 and all uphill...

Orienteering 1:06:00 [3] 8.0 km (8:15 / km)

Course at some place in NY. On my way to the first control, something happened that's never happened to me before. I was running through the woods and all the sudden, there was a huge reentrant infront of me, except it wasn't on the map. I was quite puzzled as I was sure I was in the right location... I looked down the reentrant to see if there was any definite feature that would clue me in. Seeing nothing, I decided to just go around. I did so, saw some other features that matched up, then looked back at the reentrant, except it wasn't a reentrant. Water in the marsh that was supposed to be there had risen to the point of being a large puddle. On the other side, the light had hit it in such a way that the reflection of the trees gave the appearance of a reentrant.

I finished the rest of the course almost without incident. While running to number 12 or 13, I was flying down a trail. There was a family of four ahead coming towards me. One of the little children, about 4 or 5, was walking with a stick. As I was running down the trail (quite quickly) I noticed he made eye contact with me, then I knew I was in for it. As I got close, the small innocent child raised his stick trying to skeywer me. I saw it coming, though (he wasn't quick about it) and so I dodged gracefully to the side, then continued on laughing. I have never been attacked by another person while on a course, though...
