Day one at US Champs. I mis-timed my warm up, and had to run to the start. My start time folks were already getting their maps! Not the way I wanted to begin, but at least I knew it was an easy run to the first control.
I was actually moving and concentrating well through the first few controls. I was pleased with my map reading.
I got sloppy, though, on the way to 5, and didn't pay attention to exactly where I crossed the reentrant. Or how high up the hill I wanted to be. Climbed quite a bit (to the upper set of rocks) before I decided to stop and figure things out. I was pleased that I stopped, and didn't wander aimlessly. Probably lost 5 minutes here, still.
After that I was pretty clean, only minor bobbles. I was satisfied with my effort today. 4th in F45, but not too far back.
Beautiful day, fun course. Quick Route day 1
