Red course at Great Brook Farm. I arrived late through a combination of sleeping late and some very poor route choices on the drive to GBF. I expected to run a course unofficially before helping with control pickup, but Tim was nice enough to let me start; he set 60 minutes as a goal time (largely because of Magnus' goading).
I didn't have much warmup, but I felt ok physically from my "taper." I made a pretty horrendous mistake on the first control - I wasn't able to make sense of the trails near the control, though my attack was bad. My only other mistake of consequence was exiting 14 poorly and so slogging through a length of swamp unnecessarily for perhaps a two minute loss. Something in my left foot started hurting abruptly en route to 16; I slowed for a time, and the pain diminished shortly afterward. I didn't notice any problems a few hours later, so maybe I was just getting poked.

Gentle outing picking up controls. I felt good.
