TNT. Thought I would enjoy a nice, easy run. But Tom ran away from us immediately from the cars. I ran about 2 miles with Jim, until I got tired of Tom lapping us, and then I ran with him.
Initially, I accelerated around the turns and opened up a little gap on him. But, he eventually started closing the gap, and with his finishing sprint, he almost completely erased it. I did another two hardish laps after that, and then a cooldown.
Tom, in addition to being one of the featured contributors to the premier American journal of orienteering, is also rather fast.
