hiking 5:30:00  25.0 km (13:12 / km)
with big catching features for CP10 and CP12, CP11 was the main challenge. having no better idea, we simply did a straight bearing and skirted or went through quite a few marshes. i see now that a more southerly bearing would have been drier. we hardly got up to a jog between CP9 until the trails into CP12, but we were steady, constantly moving.
got the news about my bib penalty from Angus at CP11. after apologizing to my teammates, there wasn't anything to do but push hard, and so we did.
i have never eaten so few gels and bars in a race and so much real food (sandwiches, boiled eggs, etc) and it seemed to work great, no gut issues at all this race.
