Very nice way to cap the week. A fairly clean run @ Buffalo. The one control where I'd made a 30 second mistake vs. my intended route actually took me on a loop around some green, and I ended up winning the split by accident...
And to top it off, it was enough to combine with their 3-events scoring to put me ahead of Jon T. for the weekend, making it my first whole-weekend M21 A-event win ever.

Loop around the Laundromat in the early AM before a day at Niagara Falls, ON. Came across a trail, I'd guess by these folks?, in a Williamsville neighborhood that had a ton of runners on the sidewalks - at 10pm and 7am....

The daily Sprint. Choice A. Not quite full race pace, but not jogging either. L-achilles still annoying, but as it's not worsening, I imagine it'll get better at some point here.
Apparently got beat by the Child's - easy to know that thanks to fast Splits posting (thanks ROC!). Even digging to find 40 seconds of possibly avoidable technical mistakes still puts me slower than Ethan ran & navigated.
I wonder - where were the Child's at the US Team Trials? And could one of them be an early beneficiary of the slightly easier "specialist" exception, now becoming part of the rules tor Team Trials 2012. (Slightly = slightly: must win one of the SML Champs or Trials Event days, to be considered for a possible Exception to the normal scoring list. But conceivably useful for someone who's fastest in the US at Sprint's, even if they aren't in top 4-5 on typical Middle/Long Champs yet...)

2x the super string-O' sprint. almost 30 controls, effectively epunch skills testing. Run before my normal Sprint was faster - surprisingly, as I thought I'd be warmed up better after. Though b4 I was smoother at epunching which was a huge portion of the time on this course.

Memory O' - was supposed to be w/partner every other leg, but late arrival coordination turned it into a single person affair. Aimed to memorize 7 controls. Carried map w/me and had to look at it once, when my simplified memory of one control didn't include a steep enough climb up a side hill and I ended up 1 spur off.
Continuation of an excellent set of 'training camp' afternoons by ROC after AM convention stuff.
