Race Evaluation

OOC Kanata Lakes: Long Advanced


1. long trail run, shooting off intersection
2. drifted right 110m
3. I have no memory of this leg.
4. I expected to learn that I had run right by control 3 w/o punching. With so much confusion coming out of control 3: swimming towards control 4, worried about wearing those same shoes to work tomorrow, four of us missing control 4 no matter which way at it. I even asked Lorna if she remembered seeing me punch last control. I hadn't even caught her by that point. I carried on, decided not to swim the marsh twice more, expecting a MP all the way through the course. Bottom line: I didn't quit and I'm delighted to have results that stand.
5. I took the trails then N of marsh, I shot straight W.
6. Having faced reality, I didn't punch 3 and I'd be wearing wet shoes to work, I slowed right down and went overland to spike control, a very rare occurance.
7. I drifted 90m right but saw both rock piles as catching features.
8. Ran to double rockpiles then N through lovely fast open terrain.
9. Robbie ran by and I stuck like glue.
10. I soon lost Robbie but actually ran my best leg, according to data: S to pasture, then building, W on trail across railroad, SW across pasture to trail flash marking dry crossing of deep, dangerous ditch and picked up the back of another racer just before control.
11. I got additional guidance from runner still in my view.
12. NNW toward fence line which I tried to follow but terrain got too green. Jumped fence in to pasture until deep stream then back across fence. I crossed stream on rail ties which don't float anyway. There was a crowd of other course runners at control.
13. I considered following railroad but remembered I should be intimately familiar with a straight over land...and I was.
14. I drifted 50m right. I should have swung left around hill.
15. Down the tracks and left later than runner in front of me.
F. Made the younger racer pass me on final trail leg.
