Ski-O race 23:38 
shoes: '05 White/Red/Black Fischer Sk
Started my watch at -1:00, so I wouldn't have to mess with it at teh start, then hit the start stop button when the timer beeped, so no track...
Turned over the map and couldn't find 1. Had seen Aims, starting 2 min in front of me, head up the hill to the right and when I finally found 1, it was more to the left - what was I missing?? Got over that, but was not skiing smoothly. Ok to 1m 2m 3 in the field. No one had cut through over the stonewall from 3 to 4, so went down and came back up the wider trail. Blew down the narrow trail - was OK to 5, up the non-grromed section and then left to 6, was too tight up the hill, losing a lot of time.
Past 13 then didn't make the corner, so kept going straight on the narrow trail past 8 then almost wiped out Aims as he came up the snowshoe trail.
Punched 7, then my eye follwoed a line back up the hill and I took off - towards 13. Was almost up to the small central clearing, when I took another look at my map to confirm which way I needed to go - damn, flip around, left onto the dashed trail and up - lost about a minute.
Struggled up the dashed trail towards 9, saw Jan Merka catching up to me.
Couldn't relax and ski easily towards 10 - just a long slog.
Coming down from 12, knew I didn't want to go past 9, so was thinking stay left, and I did, back onto the dashed trail past 11, then narrow trail to 10 and back onto the wide trail. Downhill was a bit sketchy, so not carrying a lot of speed when I turned onto the narrow trail past 6 to 13.
Quick check to make sure I wasn't missing another loop, then 14, 15 and in.
