Day One race in the northern section of Red Top Mountain State Park. Overall, I was pretty satisfied with my navigation until the last control. I was a little too far east on no. 5, went to the wrong rock, but knew exactly to follow the stream west to the next rock.
The steepness of the terrain caused me to stop for breath on nos. 7 and 9. Then I totally blew it on control 10 and went up the wrong stream. Finally I went over the hill to the right stream and finished. This cost me about 15 minutes. I was really tired and hungry when I finished.
After getting home and checking my heart rate, I was pretty maxed out for about half the course.
