from yesterday's middle. Not much to say, in control all the way.
on today's long (also M60, GreenX). A little miss on #6, otherwise fine. Definitely helped at 13 and 14 by people just ahead of me. Best move was crossing the wide ride just before #7 on a narrow pice of bare rock, thereby avoiding all the barberry (and its resident ticks, one assumes). Second best move was not getting at all bothered by the wide flat reentrant 1/4 of the way from 9 to 10, mapped as white, actually dark green.
As far as enjoyment, Saturday was much better. Bull Pond has its share of hills and rocks and mountain laurel, but not really much of the knee/waist/chest-high blueberry or whatever else that stuff is. So it is much more runnable. Whereas Turkey Mountain, Sunday's map, has always been much junkier woods, and it seems to have gotten more so. Very few places where the running was fun. Turkey Mountain was just hard work.
And the cadets, as has been the case for the last decade or so (ever since the Campbells really improved the program, and now under the leadership of Mike Hendricks), once again put together an excellent weekend. The days of absurd courses, misplaced controls, and people in tears at the finish are just distant memories. Good for them!
