Middle distance race at parks in two different states--MI and IN. The first part was mostly urban, while the second part was mostly in the woods. I dithered around going to the first control, then settled in. At the beginning I was being very conservative, and mostly went on trails. I had a lot of trouble at 4, and ran up and down the hill three times, before finally ducking into the woods, where the control was at the bottom of the ravine with lots of vegetation in the way. By the time I got to six, I decided, enough of only trails, I can find my way through the woods. Good from there through 9. Ten was located on the other side of a ditch, which I decided not to attempt. So I took it slow and easy by going east to the road, then back west to the control. Except for 4, which was a disaster, and the slow start at one, I was mostly happy with route choice and performance.
This morning, Sharon and I walked all over the Notre Dame campus. Beautiful grounds, and historic buildings. A good way to start the day.
