Orienteering race (Sprint) 18:14  *** 2.8 km (6:31 / km)
shoes: Newbalance 758 Gray
The heat was exhausting at this point. I ran this race fairly well though slower than I would have liked. The race itself was fairly clean though not all of my route choices were optimal.
I was a tad slow off of the start then had a good first 3 controls. Controls 4 through 7 were in the woods on the side of the hill and I took those fairly slow to be safe. the next 3 controls were fine then I had a stupid route to 12 by going to the left and over the smaller bridge across the dam. Another poor route to 13 and I was unsure of 14 even though it was right at the boulder that I was heading for. 15, 16, 17 were good though I was feeling the heat and the speed at this point. The go control leg was a little weird and I went through the tennis courts which looking at the leg now might not be the best choice but probably wasn't too bad either.
Not too bad for a first sprint of the year.
