GNC Classic day 1 Camp Rutledge - Hard Labor Creek State Park 9.8km, 335 m
I was able to keep up a good pace today, but was not very clean on the approaches which ended up costing me 1-3 minutes on multiple controls. Really need to focus and not just wing it.
2 - hit the trail N and had to come back down. 4 - got turned around exiting 3 and left the trail thinking I was at a completely different point. Once i corrected that i proceeded to miss the circle ending up too far east. 5- slight overshoot 9 - the hill up to 9 addled my brain and I whiffed the approach. Syd caught up to me here (8 minutes gained on me). 10 - syd passing me got in my head. must have just missed it but had to reattack. 13- slight overshoot 19 - got distracted by a flag that was SE and had to correct

GNC Middle Bert Adams Scout Reservation 4.8 km, 140m
We were cutting it a little close and parked about 15 minutes before my start time. I quickly checked in, put on shoes and headed straight to the start line. I was a little flustered but took a few deep breaths before setting off. Turned out to be one of my cleanest and fasted races ever. One minor bobble ending up on a spur just E of the correct one for 5. Otherwise i was clean and kept a good running pace.

Still a little stuffy but over all feeling better so I joined syd for the full long run. It was a beautiful day to be out in the woods at 45F. Trails were muddy but less traveled than most parks around here, so not bad. Went back and forth with some mtb bikers for a bit but chose to do a reverse loop to break away. Feels pretty good to be in 14 mile shape in January :).
