Elk Neck - red course.
This was disappointing. I was doing fine (well, only small errors and some legs really well and moving great) up through #11. And then I completely fell apart. Huge mistake to 12 and not clean to 13, 14 or 15. I guess I just got too tired to focus. Physically I felt okay but obviously mentally I wasn't there. Twice I climbed up a huge hill only to realize I needed to go right back down since I wasn't where I thought I was. Grrrr. Could easily have been under two hours.
I thought the woods were great and the course was fun. This is definitely the time of year to be at Elk Neck. Occasionally the deadfall had me scrambling but it wasn't as bad as I remembered so either the course setting avoided the worst of it or else I was lucky in my route choices.
