MetrO series at Heirisson Island. Got stuck behind, I think, Andrew M. and Ben D. on the bridge towards the island, but getting onto the island the average pace was 3:42/km, so I needed to back down a little. That's not easy to do when tRicky is running away. I kept close to him on the west side of the island due to my shorter routes between controls, after that he pulled away. Lost sight of him after #10, but up to then we had done 10 controls exactly the same. On the long way back towards the finish I started to struggle. It wasn't much fun running past the finish knowing I had to pick up another two controls, when I was already cooked, but it seemed like a good route. Finished a minute and a half behind tRicky. Fitting end of the season: seventh second place and second overall. Google Earth distance (8.35 km) was 50 m longer than GPS distance this time, as the GPS got a little confused through one of the underpasses.
