Winter Series 6 @ Fort Ebey. One of those off days where you can tell early on that for whatever reason you don't have much in the legs. I wasn't overly impressed with the course; there were a couple doglegs, not a ton of route choice, and a lot of trail running. Ebey is a good venue, but unforgiving to course setters - the terrain is limited such that it must be used in a certain way to harness its potential and yield a great course.
Finished 1:36 behind J (but only because he made a big error on the first control) and, irksomely, 27s behind Peteris. I lost about 1:15 on 3 because I made a poor decision to cut downhill through some thick salal instead of taking the trail; also seem to have lost about 45s on 5, presumably due to the trail apparently being slower than the road, and another 45s-60s on 12, again presumably due to the trail being slower than the road. I enjoyed the 13-14 leg up the gently sloping field with the view of the water - that was a really nice touch.
