4th overall at the Wissahickon Trail Classic. I was comfortable in second at two miles with first place only 15 seconds ahead, but I took a wrong turn following the old course. I lost about 3 minutes overall. I was also pretty discouraged from having lost that much time. I was in about 20th when I got back on course. So I decided to have fun with it and see how far up I could climb from there.

1st place was only 3 minutes ahead of me. He's also sponsored by Salomon. It's good to know I can race a guy with that type of speed. But I should pay more attention to the trail blazes.

Is there anyway we could get something together in the OUSA budget for something like this?: https://youtu.be/aIS0M13w_i0

5th and final race of the Wissahickon Wanderers Trail Series. Man, I love these woods.

I tried to keep it at a tempo pace to make sure I'm ready for the Trail Classic where the big name runners will be.

So, what to write about this weekend. Great event in spectacular terrain. Very fun courses by Andis, Greg, and Niels. What I would give to run more courses like those. I was so grateful to see so many DVOAers out there helping out. I really love my club.

As for my performance, mixed feelings.

Ecstatic in some ways because of how far I've come over the past few years. Most of my time loss today was because of slower route choices, not losing map contact or fumbling in the circle. That is a big change for Greg. It is certainly cause for a pat on the back.

Pretty damn pissed in other ways because of Lyme. My energy levels were much better today and yesterday. But I was still less aggressive than I normally like to be in terrain that's this fast.

It's great to secure a WOC spot, but I've walked away hungry for more. I know I can do better.

Looking at the splits and routes, I'd say I lost the most time on 2, 7 and 12.

2 was much faster on the trail on the right. Didn't see that option until too late.

The final climb to 7 would have been faster if it had been spaced out more gently by attacking from the left.

12 would have been better on the right going past the pool. I was hoping the lakeside trail would be faster, but it was kinda crappy running on it. Very rocky and lots of small turns that couldn't be mapped, but had to be navigated. Perhaps it would have been better to pop into the woods once I saw what that trail was like.

Running 20:00 [2] 3.0 km (6:40 / km)
