QOC Pohick Bay Red. I just can't get through a race without a major screwup. Today, it was 9-10. I don't even know how it happened. I got a good look at the hills across the way as I descended to the creek, decided to climb rather than contour, and next thing I knew I was in nowheresville. It took me a while to relocate, and it was a good ways to get back. About 12 minutes lost.
I kept up a good pace throughout, but a little slower from 10 onwards, having lost just a bit of motivation there. The navigation was pretty easy, until it wasn't. Really nice to get across the road into the Meadowwood area. Also nice that the rain held off, but the control pickup crew may have been unhappy.
