Winter League #1 @ Magnuson Park. Solid first half but very poor over the second half of the course. Not reading ahead, not picking good routes, making silly loss-of-focus mistakes. Ended up 2min behind Peteris and 1min behind Dusty. Cool to go into a surprise newly mapped section of the park though!
It was an incredibly nice day, and we had nearly 400 starts - another data point supporting the theory that we get our best turnouts on sunny days at venues in the north Seattle area.

Mercer Island 0-3 Bellevue. Last game of the season, which is great news, because it was the coldest game of the season. Unfortunately this was also one of the worst kinds of games as an AR - the kind where a coach is unhappy for legitimate reasons, but the center gets defensive and doubles down instead of making amends, and then you as an AR have to deal with it and try to walk the delicate line of placating the coach without tossing the center under the bus.

An excellent fall day, clear and cold. For some reason I think of this as a Denver day, though I guess it could be most places in the Midwest or Mountain West. Except I suspect those places might get colder than 50F.
