LOC Long Distance race, Holme Fell.
Short Brown 2 course, 6.5km, 365m.
Another 2nd behind Quentin. This is getting boring!
Fell coming out of #3 and sliced my thumb and my map. The slice almost exactly followed the red line to #5 (I took the northern option) and that (combined with the blood) made reading the map a bit difficult. No excuses there though: my main time losses were later on when I'd regained my composure. Got crag bound coming out of #10 and lost track en route to #14, rebounding off the fence to the north.
According to the splits Quentin was running faster than me anyway and I was only as close as I was because he missed #22. About 1 min down today.
