sprint at Blackburn. Designed criss-cross course on Mom's sprint map. Unfortunately, I know this park too well and I was too tired to benefit from a super-fast run. Focused on having a complete plan and not changing it. I think that is a way of taking advantage of knowing the park too well, because normally I'm tempted to think I know which way is fastest to the control without looking at the map at all. This way I forced myself to stay in contact.

Street O' in Webster Groves, really fun! Wish I would've been able to run for longer, but it was my down week:( Anyway, the controls I did get to were fun. (It was a bike score-O.) Focused on reading the control descriptions on the map at the right time, but they were so conveniently placed I didn't even have to unfold my map to read them! Also read ahead at the right time. unfortunately, my one mistake was when I missed my start-reading-the-current-leg-again point.
