Sage Stomp middle
be video. For the middle they set up a sort of reverse chase, with start times being determined by the sprint finish, but winner being last instead of first - hence the J starts 30s ahead of me at the beginning of the video - which foretold the entertaining possibility of everyone running around in the forest together having zany adventures. Here's a summary of my encounters:
-- With J from 3 to 5, after which he confused me by running off in some crazy direction and we parted;
-- With the Bonesaw (who, naturally, had missed his start time and thus started last) from 8 till I blew up at 10;
-- With J again from halfway to 13 till losing him again after 15;
-- Found Nate coming into 17 just behind me from a strange direction;
-- Found Adam coming into 19 just ahead of me from a strange direction, and again from between 20 and 21 till the finish.
Unfortunately the short start window turned it into more of a "worry about what other people doing" race rather than a "try to orienteer independently and well" race, but the former are always fun too.
