Race Evaluation

WCOC A Meet and Intercollegiates: Red Day 1


1. Lot of green ahead on trail, turned map over, saw I was going uphill anyway and cut immediately through break in green at triangle and traversed uphill - straight on line
2. +00:20straight to trail, then around light green, but got went a little low and got bogged down in green near fence artifact.
3. straight and clean
4. ditto
5. Bad route choice
Lacked concentration
took trail, cutting corners, stopped to tie shoe when crossing stream (30sec) and then looked up and saw bag, but it looked like it was on a substantial knoll, got confused, went north a little, then realized things and went back to bag. Now raining pretty decently, glasses fogging
6. Frustrated
trail around hill, then up and over white woods and down - a little slower/careful after almost messing up #5.
7. Bad map reading
Bad compass work
Could not relocate
Not thinking clearly
Lacked concentration
Lacked confidence
BOOM - can't see map/terrain, try to cut across stream/green early on, somehow wind up heading uphill to NE, nothing matching up, eventually drifting south and matching a few things (what I could see). This blew the whole thing for me - very frustrated
8. somehow this one was clean - across trail by j cliff, north end of green and straight on in. Slow up hill, but otherwise ok
9. Bad map reading
Bad compass work
Could not relocate
Not thinking clearly
BOOM2 - couldn't read map well, somehow convinced myself I was looking for a boulder in an E facing reentrant, not a w facing spur. wound up by fence corner due N of #1. Really sucked since I had only run through here20 minutes ago but now that I'm blind, I couldn't see that. Damn...
10. switch to bearing/pace count (should have done this back around #6 when vision went) Clean, realized I had actually visited this bag while wandering on #7. Slow jog at this point, not a real run - but clean navigation.
11. to trail, then cut in once clear of rocky crap, very clean - but like the remainder of the run - slow jog at best...
12. pretty much straigt on the line - didn't even opt to trail.
13. +00:20fence to trail, then down trail - couldn't read map really clearly, wound up below the rocky crap and had to climb back up to cliff - had read clue as lower, so went to the bottom of the black.
14. trails
F. up over hill on line.

Total Time Lost - 00:13:25
