Hot day, very conservative effort, using 1:15000 map made me use some defensive tactics after fast guys passed me ((Ross, Kenny and Eric). Clean first two legs, bobbled 3 in the circle, Kenny and Ross caught up to me, stayed with Ken until 8, he pulled away a bit, last time I saw him, he was leaving 9 with Eric. No major pains, K-tape used on problem spots. Had enough energy to finish the course mostly running. 2 GU, Despite loosing my wits on a way to 11, and poor execution of route to 12, enjoyed the course and the woods. Thanks Becks.
