Quite happy with this race. I had a number of small errors attacking/exiting controls, but nothing major. After the middle, I made sure to start off easy and I was clean to 1! Overran 3 slightly. Hit the stream, turned around and saw the flag. Drifted a little N on the way to 8. Some hesitation approaching 9. Poor route to 11. I wanted to take the rocky ground through the green, but I missed it and crossed through just after. It was pretty slow. I should have just continued on to the trail. Biggest error was leaving 13. Tori caught me here and I just started running without reading the map. I meant to take the W option, but got drawn toward the road, and then got confused by fences as I was relocating. Once I found myself, the rest of that leg went pretty well.
Physically I felt really good. I had a lot of energy compared to the middle and I felt like I was moving well through the woods while maintaining map contact. Quite relieved that my leg held up so well this weekend. Apparently I just needed to go run around in the woods for a while to make it feel better.
Overall, I thought this was a great course. The terrain was fantastic, and there was a nice variety of leg lengths as well as interesting route choices.
