Very physical course at Pond Ridge, relatively clean run, slow running down hills, due to weak R. ankle since Middle @ The Pig twist. intentionally went around to 8, it was much longer, but avoided nasty steep passage in mt. laurel. Did not see high route to 1 that would save some climb, dropped a little low from 1 to 2, missed 3 high. The rest of the course - clean, just got stuck close to 9 in wind blown patch.
