DVOA Chasing the Star - Lehigh University Sprint - Red (F-21+)
Started out fast -- no issues through first 6. Really tiring after that -- I always tend to go out too quickly and the tank goes dry really fast. Lost time on 14 -- ended up going around the building on the right, then was confused when there were no manmade objects, then realized they were ABOVE... I hadn't done a sprint yet where different levels of buildings came into play. So I need to practice reading that type of map. Same issue with 15, I completely missed the opening for the stairwell to go up. I ended up running around the much larger plaza type area near the finish... very confused... of course where everyone could see :-) Finally got my head screwed back on straight and finished up with no more problems. My pace for this was slower than I would have liked, though the 2 large errors may account for most of that. I need to learn to pace myself better in shorter races so I have more energy throughout. Also to concentrate and *read* the map even when I'm near the end and tired.
