Occassional thoughts about orienteering

Today's cross country raceI ran a cross country race today. The course was at Clinton State Park and Gene drew the course on the O' map. Thanks, Gene.
I carried the map and read it as I ran. That makes it a bit more interesting.
Running races like this is good. It is a good thing to do; something I should do more often. Maybe this year I'll run a few races.
Compared to the runners near me, I lost time on the uphills (no surprise); ran even on the flats; and gained time on the downhills and especially on the stream crossings.
I ran the race with a GPS. You can see the track below overlayed on the U.S.G.S. map. I'm impressed with how accurately the little GPS unit tracks a runner.
