Orienteering race 50:07 [4] *** 4.28 km (11:43 / km) +53m 11:02 / km
shoes: Nike Trail (Blue)

Deja Vu 1 at Rentschler. Started off feeling winded and slow, but once I got warmed up I had some really nice sections of extended running. Beautiful weather---It couldn't have been a nicer day.
7 PM

Orienteering race 54:17 [4] *** 4.5 km (12:04 / km) +45m 11:30 / km
shoes: Nike Trail (Blue)

Deja Vu 2 at Rentschler. Really wanted the workout, but I started really feeling the first race. Unlike the first race, I never really got going except on the downhill sections (there were lots of slight downhill that I was just flying on). I looked really strong finishing, but as I approached the go control, I felt my right calf cramping, and then when I turned back uphill for the final split, both calves cramped. So I pretty much left it all out there, even considering the 2 minutes I stood at 2 watching some guys using a serious 11hp homemade winch to do some water skateboarding up the Rentschler low-head dam. What is water skateboarding? I have no idea. I asked if it was a wake board, and one guy said, "Sorta, except wake boards attach to your feet." {Edit: I think it's called Wakeskating.) It's now 5 hours later, and I'm feeling it. Afterwards, had a Mount Carmel amber ale, made in Cincinnati. Very nice.

(Allergies were really bad. I might need some sort of inhaler before I race. Mike heard me sort of violently coughing / wretching from over 50m away and I heard him through the trees, "Are you okay?". )

ARDF 2m 44:08 [3] 2.72 km (16:12 / km) +77m 14:12 / km
shoes: Nike Trail (Blue)

Short 2m ARDF at Mt Airy. Me, Dick, Brian, and Marji. Three of us took the 5 transmitters out into the park making a fairly short course. Didn't run as much as I'd like, but I did some really intense 90-120 second climbs trying to reach the top of the ridge before a transmitter went off. Order was 4231 (I set 5). At one point, I hit stop on my new GPS, rather than split, so I had to repair the gpx---that's what the straight line segment is.
