I wasn't the quickest at the drink this year. Several others out drank me. i was 3rd to the maps but the first to be running in the right direction. I led down the trail singing I am in first, I am i first. i cut off the trail early to avoid the marsh. No one followed me. When we joined back up I would still have been in first except where I went to cross the stream there was a down tree so I lost lots of time. Then the uphill started and I was slower. I also screwed up the next control. I had a better approach then the leaders but apparently missed the control and didn't correct well. At least Nadim was with me. I lost a lot of ground and had to pass people I didn't expect to be with. As I finished the 2nd loop the leader was right behind me. At least i didn't get lapped.
