GNC Day 3 Classic, Brown course. I took the trail right out of the start nearly all the way to #1. I was near panic on #2 when I came to where it was supposed to be and couldn't find it. I could see the big river system but couldn't see the ditch with the control in it. It was partially hidden by foliage, and when I came at it from the other side I finally saw it, maybe 2 minutes lost.

After that the course was total fun -- fast, fine conditions, open woods with helpful features, and I ran about as well as I can while staying in control. Tempted by the road on a couple of legs near the end but the woods won out. On the run to the "go" control (same as yesterday's) I lost the trail, went too low and lost some time coming back uphill.

Just a minute and a half in front of Steve T. for first place in M65, capping a nice weekend of good competition. Florence took first on F-Brown, and Addie was unfortunately pushed out of a medal, just getting back into running after a foot injury.
