DVOA - Myrick Center - Red
Picked Red today since it was really more the normal length & climb of Green.
Took a stupid route through the woods to 8 and lost time there by losing the trail and coming out past the control without realizing it.
Most time loss on 11, stupidly thinking I could cut through the green to the big trail, and then realizing the opening from the big trail to the control was Xed out anyway. Had to slog through field of head-high crap with thorns in it to go around on trails.
Got burrs all over my legs early in the course. Picked off as many as I could, but they really rubbed. Looks like my upper legs were mauled with a meat tenderizer.
