O - competition (Billygoat Pound Ridge) 2:49:34  16.29 km (10:24 / km) +697m 8:34 / km
Good physical test, running trails and open hillsides, plus some areas of barberry.
Ok to 4, L on trail to 5, straightline R might have been better. Wrapped around end of cliffs, then got caught in them working over to control. Maybe 5 min lost. Straight to 8, Peggy led thru thick laurel. Trails to 9, then skipped 10, probably a weak choice. Trail to 11, overshot 100m, corrected by JJ (thanks!). That triple then over to 14 (better skip) and straight line to 15, trails and stone walls, with climb mixed in. Out of 15 straight towards 16 onto cliffs (oops) and corrected R. Then on to fork and took R on trail, but slowed by thick barberry at beginning. Lost 3 min to group I had been with who went L. Hard run-in with Dave Ongst for a good finish.
Note: finally got Garmin to transfer data after help from Kenny. Thanks!!
