Team Trials, sprint. Good run, no mistakes except one route might have been better. Had Ted Good start a minute before me, saw him as I was leaving #1, he was running back to it, having not seen it on his map until most of the way to 2. We were together through about 8, then he ran out of gas. Tom Carr started a minute behind. I expected to see him come sailing by, which he did on the way to 16. Held him off as long as I could, first time I saw him behind me was at 10.

Got really surprised once -- was cutting through some young evergreens, a few of which were staked for support, and I didn't see one of the wires. Hit it at full speed, caught it right in the belly. I went from 9 mph to 0 in about 1 foot (it had a little slack in it), then backwards, but somehow I ended up still on my feet, so no more than a few seconds lost. It must have caught me right at my center of mass, otherwise I would have either been on my face or my back. Fortunately no harm done, though it did cost me the chance to match Tyrtom's time.

A very fun sprint, by the way.
