Day 1, Achagour. M45L, 23rd place.
Winner James Logue 53:41

Not really up for it on arrival but pepped up a bit by the news that Jase was starting 1 minute behind.
Didn't handle that too well and binned a minute to #1, got caught at #2 and passed to #3. Knew where #4 was from my wanderings to #1 but then went to the wrong knoll at #5 and got dropped.
Okay after that for a bit but then scrappy through 10-11-12. Then worse in amongst the archery targets, dropped over a minute at #14 and left with bad direction, got the wrong side of big marsh and dropped nearly 2mins getting back across to #15.
Ahead of me Jase couldn't find #16 and was maybe only 30secs out of the control as I headed into it, that cheered me up so I set out to chase. Got sight of Si Patton at #18 but couldn't catch him or see Jase, then got confused by the paths to #21 for 20-30secs.
At #23 in the green, all of a sudden there was Jase coming into it from the wrong direction to cheer me up all over again :)
Struggling to catch and Simon appeared again to pass me. Penultimate was tricky and Simon missed, then I managed to get past on the run to the final one.
Better result than performance, not many Brits ahead. Looks like a strong field in M45L though!

Then on to watch the Sprint Finals. No voice left afterwards!

Nairn Sprint after spectating the MSR. Fun run round, nearly got caught out after the spectator run-through - the route I wanted from watching WOC was not available to punters and had reverted to olive green on our maps!
