Orienteering race 1:30:46 [4] 3.25 mi (27:56 / mi) +492ft 24:26 / mi
shoes: Salomon XT Wings 3

Middle - Adams Creek - Brain was left in the Arena!

Hard to really process everything that's been going on in the last few days, but as far as orienteering first A meet...let's just say I finished and I was not last. Made some big fat mistakes on 3 controls - like doing a 180 (oh, my first one!) and in general, not going slow enough to be technically correct. It was a little disorganized. Also i read some contours backwards. oh my! I would say this was the hardest course I have ever done given my lack of sleep and mental fuzziness. BUT I had a great time, and the day was really really fun. There is always tomorrow. :)

More thoughts later -

Orienteering 1:31:57 [3] 2.81 mi (32:40 / mi) +384ft 28:56 / mi
shoes: Salomon XA Comp 5 GTX

Model Event training. This was very helpful for just getting me back in the mindset for orienteering but I have to say, my brain has left the building. I lost my cell phone and had an international team of orienteers helping me find it (I insisted they go back to their training, that I would find it eventually, but they insisted back...) Eventually we found it and I called it quits on the Pickerel Pond map. Went to 9/15 controls. Beautiful woods!!!

Walk 15:00 [2]

Walking my Dad around the halls of the hospital, where he has been since Thursday night. He told me to log this- apparently he gets up at 6am to do his "rounds" and does them 5-6 times a day despite having tubes coming out of his body! His positive attitude is so inspiring.

Tomorrow afternoon he is having surgery to fix a problem he's been having for a while that got a lot worse. Please think good strong healing thoughts for him (in between thinking thoughts about NAOC.)
