10 AM

Orienteering race 1:00:18 [3] *** 3.7 km (16:18 / km) +107m 14:14 / km
spiked:6/8c (injured) shoes: Inov8 ORoc280-A 2013-08

Brown course Middle on Deep Hollow map, 2.9 km 95m climb, 8 controls

Ribs/ left side still very sore so wasn't going very fast out there. I (along with quire a few others from what I heard) had trouble with our second control, a cliff on a hillside among many, many other cliffs. I found someone else's control but then was offline enough that I went beyond and down the wrong side of the rockiness. When I was far enough down the spur that I could see the finish and the very large cliff a couple contours below me I knew I had to climb back up. I took a different line up and saw the flag from below and others punching at it. Splits will show but I figure I lost about 8 minutes (maybe more).

Lost a little bit of time going to 4 when I decided I didn't want to wade the wide stream and deviated to the bridge/crossing point 100m away, but the flag was easy to spot from a distance. Then I went to the wrong rocks near 5, a much smaller error.

A uninspiring course (a bunch of yellow difficulty controls, an intermediate control and a couple of advanced legs), but not the silly unnecessary climb that we had last year. Thank you, LTC Campbell, for your course consulting.

4th today, not too far behind my usual competition if I had been clean to 2.
11 AM

Walking warm up/down 26:00 [1] 1.2 mi (21:40 / mi)
shoes: Inov8 ORoc280-A 2013-08

Note: Updated time and distance of this walk based on vmeyer's log which also shows the track. :-) Time and distance estimated Rugged streamered route from finish back to the car. Chatted with Lex who finished shortly behind me, which made the time go faster.
2 PM

Orienteering race 26:47 [3] 2.09 km (12:48 / km) +38m 11:44 / km
shoes: Inov8 ORoc280-A 2013-08

And then the sprint at Camp Natural Bridge, in terrain and having the same general flow as previous sprints I've run here. Couldn't actually "run" and jogging was uncomfortable but I didn't walk the whole thing and found all the controls right the first time. Janet P started a minute behind and gave me the competitive spirit to jog the roads and trails. Probably last in F60 but that's okay. Janet F had a nice run and finished first.

Talked to all the other Janets in the 60-64 age range (Janet Porter was born the same year but doesn't do the Brown course), and discovered I'm the oldest of us 4 (me, Janet F and Janet Porter were all born in the same year, and Janet Peterson is a couple years younger).
