Well, shit. This didn't go as planned. Day 1, Red X, extremely creative route to the first control. Interesting enough to win me a door prize at the course review/meet 'n' greet. Lost about 8 minutes running up the wrong creek, relocating, and finally getting to the first control. The rest was okay, a few bobbles later in the course, but not a happy place kind of run over all.

Sprint relay. I ran the second leg for team I Can Has Sprint Relay? This was a really neat format. There were four different sprint courses, Br/Or, Gr, Red and Bl. Teams were composed of any three people and each person ran their age group course, which were designed to be handicapped so that they'd have equal winning time, with the added twist that all men (including those on blue) had to run an added "penalty" loop at the end of their course to really even it out. Brilliant. (At least I think most of us women enjoyed it.)
Team I Can Has Sprint Relay? was led off by Sam, who ran really fast and finished while some blue runners were running their 'penalty' lap. Awesome. I think she was sixth, behind a bunch of fast kids on shorter courses. Then I went out and tried to run fast, succeeding somewhat, but coming back in 11th place. Passed off to Ross, who managed to bring us back up to 5th.
I ran much harder during this sprint than I did during yesterday's sprints but managed to run about as well. Figures that I'd run okay for the three races that don't count. (Not that a the sprint relay wasn't important!)
