Occassional thoughts about orienteering
Thursday, May 22, 2003
To the Team Trials...Later today I'm flying out to NY for the U.S. Team Trials.
I think I'll have internet access all weekend and will make an effort to update these pages with some reports from the races (middle distance on Saturday, classic on Sunday and relay on Monday).
I'm looking forward to the weekend because it should offer some really nice orienteering. The terrain -- maps in Harriman used for the 1993 WOC -- is top notch. Eric Weyman is setting at least some of the courses and he's an excellent course setter (I'm expecting well thought out courses). The format, with three different types of events, should also make it interesting.
The current weather forecast is for warmish (upper 50s ) rainy weather. That's about my favorite weather for orienteering. Though as my eyesight gets weaker and I rely more and more on my magnifying glass to read the map, rainy weather can be a bit frustrating.
My goals for the weekend are clean runs. I figure to finish somewhere in the middle of the pack. posted by Michael | 12:47 PM
