running/walking warm up/down 25:00 [1]
shoes: Integrator

AM : early walk to start, dynamic stretching, easy jogging, got to start just right, no more than a 2 min wait. Wore Garmin and did not keep time, so lucky I wasn't late.
PM: just easy walk/jog uphill to start (5 min)

Hawn SP - Middle O - green course. Left 2, headed S into the dead fall and backtracked left to trail up ridge. Boom to 10. Saw Mary Jones leaving 9 ahead of me and I thought she was taking a direct or a route more to the left. First left 9 going higher to roughly contour around 1st bowl of rentrants, then lost concentration while climbing and climbing going to the knoll just E of the direct line. Ended up on a trail 100m further NE than I thought and ran the trail to the opposite side of the reentrant NE of the control. An aha moment - knew where I was and slowly got to 10. Having not practiced this sport much recently, one mistake wasn't bad. QuickRoute

Hawn SP - afternoon campground sprint course. easy walk to start from parking area. 1-2 - legs felt tired and stiff, better from 2-3. 4-5 took power line to the left and down, didn't see that the straight shot wasn;t that steep. 7-8 straight to nose of ridge then contoured around; didn't even see the road as a choice. Near finish and thought I still had to find a #13.

Thought about doing an ice bath afterwards for quicker recovery.
