Walk to Start at Hickory Run State Park, along a creek for the most part--nice, and pleasant conditions waiting for my start time (no blackflies swarming like last weekend in Canada :-) ).
Started at the same time as Meg Parson ("the redhead start time").

Solid effort once I realized all the light green wasn't so bad. I'm glad Sandy didn't send us into or through the thick dark green (laurel and rhododendron). Good use of the area.
Minor (for me) bobbles in/near the circle on 2, 3, 8 and 11, maybe could have been 1:30 to 2 minutes faster? 1st F50 for the day. 8th/37 overall on Green Y (very happy about that!), 14-15 minutes behind Kristin Hall who's very speedy, but only 7:30 min behind second place.
Fell on the way down the hill to the water control and narrowly avoided impaling myself; landed in the soft area between a stump and a stick. Feeling extra aches two days later, probably from the fall.
Didn't see any bears, but heard at least one had been in the vicinity earlier in the day who was "encouraged" to relocate for a few hours.
