Billygoat Run - second well behind Will Hawkins, on whom I relied completely for the long leg to 7 - he was running much faster than I could even keep track of on the map. I wondered whether he was merely pretending to be confused shortly before 9 in order to shake me but I knew where I was at that point and all the people who'd caught us at 7 were sure to be breathing down our necks anyway so I forged ahead and then made a parallel error one ridge to the north of the right one on 10 that let him get by. Slowed down a bit thereafter from the effects of previous exertion and the lack of a rabbit pulling me along. Saw Will just ahead (he said he messed up 11 somewhat) and Wyatt, Vadim and Boris only just behind me in the 12-13-14 triangle but no one thereafter.
Just barely remembered to grab two of the waterproof bandaids I'd bought the previous evening as I headed off to catch up with everyone walking to the start - nice not to have rubbed my nipples raw though not so much of a performance issue as in a multi-day event.
