Running 1:01:27 
Due to success at Trot in 2011, I was very confident. Overall a pretty good run, but frustrating to lose time 3-4 times. (Lost 5 minutes?) Planning ahead and relocation were good. Paul Bennet walked whole course but I still passed him 3 times - bad sign. Beat him by only 5 minutes. 5th in tough M60; 4th possible. 1st was 44 while 3rd was 51.
My 10-day head-cold and laryngitis just ending - energy level was much lower than for 2:45 Grunt a couple weeks ago.
S-1: Plan: small depression on lip. Good line. Saw a control lower to left. "That's too low" but went to check it anyway. Ugh. Back up. -1/2
2-3: Before my Start I'd seen Erin totally befuddled, on course, next to Finish. "She knows where shje is, whay is she so confused?" I found out why. Circles 2 and Finish were touching, maiking Finish look like #3 (with no number, hmm). I went to rock face overlooking Finish. Hmmm, this didn't work for Erin, what's up? Saw 3 circle 'far away'. Contoured to road, good attack. (-2)
12-13: "I don't need trails, just follow re-entratn down." But when I saw trail, I toop it. Ooops, "What is Start doing here?". Wrong trail, drifted right and uphill. Mostly brain-dead at this time. (-2)
Good Finish and rest of controls were well-planned and excecuted.
Amazingly, rain stayed 20-30 NW all AM and bare sprinkles in early PM. Stripped to 2 layers (long-sleeve + SLOC shirt) just before Start, still a bit warm. Sounds like cold and drier tomorrow.
