SMOC Peach Mountain 3 hour score-O. Cleaned the course with 15 minutes to spare. Still got solidly beaten by Aragorn, Dersu, Mintore et.al. Hilly terrain.
Bobbled a couple minutes on the first two controls. A bit sloppy on a few others. Lost at least 7 to 8 minutes (combined) on two controls where my aiming off was off and I turned the wrong way. I count only 16 of the 30 as good clean spikes. Estimate my total lost time at 19-20 minutes.
Felt good to run almost everything but the steeper uphills and the thicker brushier footing. Still had enough gas in the tank to try to catch the guy 100m ahead of me on the 300m straightaway to the finish. Almost got him too, but he had a little kick left for the final 50. Didn't feel dead, despite carrying no food or water, and only two water controls on the course, and actually felt like I still had good energy to go farther.
