West Point A-Event - Long distance race on the Lake Popolopen map (Red Course). Once again, as has been the case at most recent A events, I got zero sleep on Saturday night. Not sure why I continue to have this problem. In my sleep-deprived state, I worried the demanding terrain would quickly wear me down. Instead, I managed a clean run. Did feel slow at times but I was navigating well.
I loved this course (and the new map). It is probably my favorite West Point course of all time. A lot of variety, very little trail running, some nice route choice, and areas of technical detail. 2nd on M45.
I've been attending West Point events since 1983. This was, in my opinion, the best ever. The organization, maps and courses were superb. Hats off to the cadets, the Campbells and everyone else involved in this terrific weekend of orienteering.
