NAOC Sprint Green-X. I'm not much of a sprinter. I can run fast, but I think too slowly. I could see it on the 7-8 leg. From 7 I drifted a little east and came out of the woods on the trail in front of the two buildings. Then had to stop, look at the map, look at the building, look at the map, look at the other building, and finally they clicked into place. Why did that take so long? And why didn't I anticipate the buildings and get ready for them?
Aside from pauses to think, there was one gross error on 5. I meant to go all the way around the yurts and take the obvious trail to the control, but I got off the road early on a vague trail that eventually took me around through the swampy area to the junction just north of the control. Had no idea where I was, so I headed north until I saw the yurts, reversed direction again, and ran to the control. Ow.
An o.k. run, could have been much better.
