Here begins Ali's Seattle Sprint training camp (6 sprints in < 20h)! Sooo many thanks to Pink Socks and ebone, for enabling!! And for reals, these are world-class sprint maps. Everyone should make it to SART at least once...
Gas Works Park.
Pretty good and perhaps like Riga sprint qual, the park portion at least. Messed up twice at the end, perhaps distracted by picnickers in finding a better route to the first mess-up, but second one really just came out the wrong direction from a control for no good reason. Gotta work on that!

Center of the Universe (a.k.a. Fremont).
Wow, awesome. Intricate + some clear multi-level, also minimal traffic. Had to work very hard to read ahead enough to not stop. Read one control as up high, thought I was being so clever with my route, then was down low. Which the map does make clear, blah.

And one final training squeezed into the afternoon (luckily all close). Seattle Pacific U, which is a hilly campus made neater by multilevels divided by (sometimes) uncrossable walls. Also very hard to stay ahead enough to not fully stop out there. Some added speed would happen with controls actually there and spotting them from further away, gaining full confidence. But still would have been tricky!!
Sylvia saw me at the spectator control and then was upset I hadn't stopped to hang with her the whole last lap apparently. Aw.
