GNC brown day 2, nominally 4.4 km, 140m climb
Knees have been achy since yesterday and I took Aleve this morning, but a test jog out of the start told me this was going to be a walking day. Down the hill to the bridge across Dog Creek on the way to #4 was slow and careful. Coming back across from 7-8 I didn't bother with the bridge but picked up a stick to help me balance as I crossed the creek, and I held onto it for the hill climb and almost until the finish.
No problem with any of the attacks or control placement, though I missed a trail going to 5 and found 162 when I was looking for 144. I figured 162 was probably a ditch SW of my gully and was able to get on the right trail shortly thereafter and find my 5.
Extreme O tomorrow should be interesting as I'm teaming up with Glen, but he's had enough of a workout (he ran M45 Red... and won the class!) that he probably won't mind going my speed. We've already decided we probably won't do anything that gets us wet, including a culvert crawl if offered.
Finished third in F60 behind Sandy and Shelly Pennington who were also 1-2 yesterday.
