Day 2 of Boulder Dash--cooler temps (low 60's), partly cloudy, and great for running.
Fine to # 1, blew # 2, an error I blame partly on me and partly on the circle not being cut. There was a heck of a lot of contour and rock detail covered by the circle in the area of the control! About 8 minutes lost here, so not as bad an error as yesterday, but almost.
Then I settled down and took safe routes to some of the controls (notably # 5) and was more careful on the execution. Not entirely confident on 7, checked out another flag on the way to 14, but otherwise navigated well. Saw Allison C. a lot from 6 on (mostly just ahead of me, but I passed her from 13 to 14, though she sprinted in from the GO control and left me in the dust. :-) )
I thought I was moving better today, and my boom was smaller, but I finished in almost the same time as yesterday. Kept my place in F50 (2nd) for a kerchief (many colors to choose from; I choose a soft med blue). Meet director Faye Doria also told all the winners to take gallons of water as they had a LOT left over.
I'm very tired now, but my legs felt strong out there, even though I still don't move as fast as I'd like in the woods.
