ahr:172 max:181 shoes: Brooks Cascadia 4 (Tractors)
ACt Sprint Champs. Ran pretty well, hitting everything well and pushing hard. Started with plenty of map conctact to get first three in the forest and noticed early the elephant tracks (I was 2nd to last starter). Did the ones through the camp well - just like summer series!. Shep caught me in the next lot of forest and I lost a little bit of time through the bush section leading into the spectator control as I tried to keep w shep without map contact - it didnt work and I had to reestablish contact. Having said that prob only lost 30s. Did the last loop fine although bit spent physically. Good run, bit dissapointed to be so far down the list!
