Pre"running" Brown at Joe Grant with Presto! Bleh. I was hoping to be able to run this, but alas I was not. I mean, I guess I could have run it if I was unconcerned about pain or additional damage, but my knee started hurting basically as soon as I started running, so I decided descretion was the better part of valor and just walked the course, and even walking down the steep downhills was still slightly painful. I will hold off on running a bit longer and then maybe go for a flatter, smoother first run.
Anyway, other than that things were reasonably clean. I had a couple of moments where I was like, why is the control not here?!?!? It should be here!! But it turns out that it was there - just behind the feature. And one silly moment of almost going down the wrong spur. Other than that, I made a couple of route choices to increase distance but decrease poison oak since I decided that getting poison oak on a course that I couldn't even run would just add insult to injury. Presto was happy to be outside in a park, although I'm sure he would have liked to go faster, and it was nice to experience what may be the last of the rain for the next 6-9 months!
