Orienteering race 3:15:00  9.56 mi (20:24 / mi)
Billygoat 39, about my 19th run. Was running in packs until I made an error on the skip from 13 to 15. I ended up navigating solo the rest of the race. Took the right fork for 21.
I didn't even see the left route to #5 until after the race. At the time, I saw Ken Walker, Sr, coming down from a steep cliff on the left and wondering where he had come from.
Thought about skipping #10, but I judged that skipping #14 saved more distance. Never saw the possibility of skipping #1.
The night before I found myself with no Gu in stock. So instead I carried a baggie with Fig Newtons and ate them during the race. Success. No cramps, even slogging up the poor route I took to #15, or late in the race.
At the 2nd Saeger loop, I saw Rich N's group behind, and a lone guy a bit ahead. He reached the huge boulder (19?) ahead of me.
Near the nonfunctional control, I was near another lone guy I thought was announced as David Webber. From the splits, it looks like he fell back after 21. I passed him going up the hill toward #20, when I took a more direct route through the marsh and he went around, then I got up the spur and into and out of the control ahead of him. Yet, at #21, we commented to each other that we witnessed the other one being at the control, even if it didn't beep and there wasn't a pin punch there to prove that we found the flag.
