Nav Dash event at Brigadoon. Nav Dash in the bush, for a change, very different from the usual. Despite my best intentions, I went around like a headless chook. Still reasonably ok until #8, but worse in the middle and final bits. Saw Sickman and Declan McC around the course quite a bit, and we were confusing each other more than helping. Ran off the map on the way to #9 when we crossed a track. Couldn't find the track on the map, until I finally realised the edge of the map was the track. From #10 I followed the line from nearby #14 to #13, which I only realised halfway. Worst bit was #17 and #18, which I both overshot. Too little map reading and too much guessing. Disappointed when I looked at the map afterwards and noticed all the useful information on there that I really should have paid attention to during the run. Need to look at the map more. Still, I've never run through the bush as fast as today, not by a long shot, so I guess I can't expect everything to go perfect. Would love to run the course again next week and do a lot better, but I'll be at the rogaine leading two novices around.
