Raced with Mickey, mostly I think because he's been sick and was happy to have my anchor as an excuse for his slower pace. I did nav for the first few, really blew 4. After that we kind of decided route together and then I followed along. Not sure if being low-grade sick since Monday took it out of me more than I thought or I'm in worse shape than I thought. Either way, I really struggled on the hills, and there were a lot of hills. Did a little off-trail "running" (trying to improve there) and did quite a bit of running on trail and on roads.
Incidentally, Babler was the first course I ever tried to solo nav when I was starting out, and the green course went so badly that I came in late, thrust my passport at Yvonne, and cried half the way home. Still lots of room for improvement, but every time I come back to Babler I smile at the memory.
