Orienteering A-meet

Saturday was Backwoods Orienteering’s (the local club) first A-meet in a couple years, and it was my first A-meet ever. There were a ton of people — in fact, a bus of cadets from West Point made the 12+ drive down to race.

I had gotten a minor stomach bug on Thursday, but strong enough to make me not want to eat much, and that was apparent for me early in the race. I ended up walking a lot more than I had hoped, which is of course evident in my time. My navigation was ok, but not great. There were 20 controls, and I was spot-on on at least 1/2 of them. But there is always one or two that mess me up. I must have gone by one about 5 or 6 times, all within 10-15 feet of it, including running right by it on my entrance to the area, but it was low in a ditch. Problem was there were about 20 ditches all right there so i spent at least 10 minutes looking through that area. 😦

My knee handled the 2+ hours fine, but my legs were pretty dead, so, like I said, I did walk a lot.

Here are the results. I am amazed at the winning time!
