Red at Morgan Territory! My parents and I were prerunning today and everything wasn't quite set up when we got there, so there was a bit of waiting around for maps and the start punch and stuff. Then we were sent off to go set up the start and start ourselves.
I was pretty sloppy on the first 2 controls, but managed to find them ok anyway. I then proceeded to completely bomb the third control. I spent 13 minutes flailing aimlessly around finding about 5-6 other courses controls. I think I actually ran right past my control, but there was a bunch of poison oak around it and I wasn't sure where I was and I didn't want to go into a big poison oak patch, so I went off and found a few more controls before finally relocating and finding my control. I told myself the course was going to be a lot more fun if I actually just found the controls, which miraculously actually calmed me down. The rest of the course was clean and super fun!
