Going to this

9 PM

Orienteering race 1:20:27 [4] **** 5.38 km (14:58 / km) +35m 14:30 / km
spiked:11/14c shoes: Inov8 ORoc280-B 2013-10

Night O champs Brown. Only F60. 4.3 km, 65m climb. Course by Bob Minto. About 42F but thankfully the wind stopped around 9 pm; my start was 9:27.

Watch got turned off for about 6 minutes so some track may be missing too. I changed time to match my printout.

Turned down the wrong road on the way to 2 so lost time there. Had to relocate from road NW of 8. Encountered a control that wasn't mine and checked its code on way to 11.

Decent nav otherwise with roads or trails nearby. F60 Champ by default.

3 PM

Walk/Jog 49:55 [3] 3.17 mi (15:45 / mi) +12m 15:34 / mi
shoes: Sauc TriumphISO-silver/gr/blue

Mostly walking, but jogged a bit now and then after passing the covered bridge (where I started) on the other side of the Little Lehigh.

Very nice day, partly sunny and about 61F. Forsythia are starting to bloom and there were some little yellow flowers that weren't dandelions in bloom along the creek.
4 PM


Near the covered bridge (our start-stop point), we saw a bike rider with a small dog in a backpack. The dog (a miniature poodle or some such) wore a pair of goggles to protect its eyes. When it was let out of the backpack it immediately tried to get them off, apparently only tolerating them for the bike ride. Cute

Orienteering 55:02 [3] *** 4.12 km (13:21 / km) +38m 12:46 / km
spiked:15/15c slept:7.0 shoes: Inov8 ORoc280-A 2013-08

Brown course at DVOA-Warwick Co Park. 3.7 km, 70m climb nominal. Gorgeous weather; sunny and low to mid 50s with a bit of breeze; closer to 60 by the time we left the park.

The park includes the north-facing slope of a hill (with plenty of rocks and charcoal platforms) plus flatter areas in the floodplain of the creek that flows through it. If you paid attention to your bearing there wasn't much of a problem navigating (at least on my course). 5 of the controls were within the open field areas or just adjacent, so not too challenging, but this map looks like it's tough to set courses on. Anyway, I had fun.

We spent time afterward catching up with various DVOA people. :-)

9 AM

Running (dirt) race 1:01:11 [5] 6.18 km (9:54 / km) +59m 9:27 / km
ahr:155 max:168 slept:6.0 shoes: 2017 Inov8 ArcticClaw 300

Swamp Creek Stomp Trail Race, purported to be 5km. Because of yesterday's heavy rains the normal course was rerouted (and maybe not remeasured?); there was also a 10km that did the same course, twice. Temperature was about 40 at the start, and the sun peeked out later.

The 10km runners started first, so by the time we got to the first muddy area it was well tracked and potentially shoe-sucking. :-) I was happy to be wearing my new O shoes which had worked well for me the past two weekends, in the snow. In fact, the mud was as hard to slog through as the snow had been, but there were drier sections too. Passed several people there early on and a few others picking their way through muddy spots (and a young woman who had already lost a shoe in the mud). The two women I traded places with most often during the race (there was also a pair of younger girls I flip-flopped with) both passed me in the last 1-1.5 km and finished a minute or two ahead.

There were a number of stream crossings, too, with water levels not more than about 6" deep, but some involved ropes either going down or up the slope...not so much because they were steep but because they were so muddy/slippery. Once the feet got wet they stayed wet.

But I was the only woman 60 or older so I won a medal. :-) My time was better than a couple of the 45-49 year olds (but none of the 50-59s). About 87th out of maybe 110? Glen was an awesome 6th overall(!) and first M60+.

4 PM


87th of 114 runners, 42nd of 62 women
