but boy, did you wander around a lot!
Not one mention of Kathy's cake in the write-up?
Thanks for the blow-by-blow and for posting the map. Wish I was there.
Well, I didn't win the pie, not with that run. And the pie winners had other plans for the pie than having it all devoured on-site. They certainly looked beautiful and delicious!
I was thinking about you, Neil. Remembering that training camp I did from your house. And how much I struggled in Blue Mountain; apparently I still do! =)
I recommend carrying other people. It helps with navigation.
More seriously, it sounds like you were so worried about your physical state, that you expended a lot of mental energy on it at the expense of navigation. I think that's a very common issue when lacking confidence in your shape... Good work sticking with it and fighting hard to the end! I hope your knee heals up quickly.
I really enjoyed your write-up; you spared nothing! You’re a bit hard on yourself but I get that.
Given your training you did really well. And I agree with Boris’s assessment.
