Hudson Highlander on the Hogencamp Mountain map. There were 4 loops. I ran with different groups most of the whole way. I fell and broke a compass in the first loop and Erin Olafsen was kind enough to lend me her spare at the aid station. Though I navigated, the train of people definately helped me out more than I helped it. Some of the people who were leading where it was toughest were Peter Gagarin, Greg Balter and Daniel Schaublin. I ran most of the course with Scott Pleban. He lead me into many controls and I returned the favor some. I finished a little behind Scott as Daniel, Greg, Dimitri and I gutted it out the last two long road legs (I caught 3 but didn't make-up much on Scott). It was a great day to be running long--clearing skies with temps in the 40's and 50's. I'd really like to spend a week training, not just racing on this type of terrain.
