Orienteering 9/22

I ran the Red course at the BOK event on 9/22, but my results show green.  The problem is that I was a DNF on red, missing control 8 (#62).  However, the green course was the same as red except for 8 (#62), 9 (#63), and 10 (#60), so I get credit for green.   That’s great in that I was not a DNF and finished 3rd on green.  🙂   From the results table, it shows that Holly who won green did the same thing I did — ran red and missed #62.  She just happened to finish 50+ minutes faster than me anyway.

My problem is that I always spend far too long looking for a control when I don’t find it quickly, probably due to lack of confidence.  I went back in to look for the “small depression” from 2 or 3 different angles, and I kept coming on what I thought was a borderline a shallow ditch or a small depression.  After the course, I talked to others that did find it, and they said I was within 20 feet of the real control, but that the flag was in it and not visible from where I was.  I swear I walked all around that same area.  :-/

Anyway, it was fun as always, and my knee felt fine.  But now my right hip has been bugging me a bit.  😦
