This series has been really fun and I appreciated the extension on the Mtn Lakes course as I was away travelling and would have missed it. It's been a while for me :-) so it was nice to get some practise in just by myself. Route Gadget is new since I was last around and that is a great post-run tool to learn how I could improve.
