Mid-Atlantic Champs at Rosaryville, Green course. I had one idea going in to this course: run like hell. The shortcomings of this strategy made themselves known on the 3rd control, when I inexplicably found myself too far south and east, at the barn, instead of cutting the diagonal as intended. Then at No. 4, a good route choice turned bad when again, without understanding how, I ran too far and off-bearing, this time hitting the road south and west of the control, somehow missing the spur entirely. Another little mistake on the easy control #9, getting into a parallel ditch. Pretty clearly outrunning my ability to think. I finished 8th, scoring points but just barely.
