Flying Pig - Long at East Fork Park.
One really bad leg (C3) where I misread the contours in real life and wound up headed 90 degrees the wrong way, until I luckily came to a trail to wake me up. Sadly, I was far from the bag, with a couple of gullies between us. Other than that, it was clear that my fitness is lacking, as it was too tough to fight thru the green stuff and some of the hills took too much out of me. And to top things off, I blew out one of my O-shoes just before the 9th control and the start of the 2K 9-10 leg. That slowed me down a bit on the trails, as I had to make sure my foot landed in a way that kept the shoe together, and more on the off-trail slopes.
The rest of the family was more successful. nate had a bit of trouble and was only third, but Luke had a nice run to lead the Primary School category by 3 minutes, and Zach, the defending Intermediate School champ had a great run to lead by 6 minutes against a larger and much stronger field.
Patty also took the lead in her category, by 8 minutes, and Walt managed to finish 2nd in M65+ for the day.
