Managed a mostly clean run despite the worry of Sharon starting 2 minutes behind me; she caught me before 3 and was mostly within sight through 6. I was happy to navigate the rest of the course mostly alone -- no major distractions. Probably could have been 2 minutes faster but not much more than that.
2nd F55! No one could catch Natalia (2nd on Br-UL at 63 min behind a recuperating BorisGr who was 'taking it easy;); Sharon did 74. Overall, 9th of 21 finishers in a tough crowd.
FR data -- 7.38 km, 137m climb
--reading the contours and not paying too much attention to the trails for the most part
--mental prep before the start
--reminding myself to check compass more often
--making sure I kept up with the "what am I going to see" rather than "where's THAT on the map?"
Fell over remnants of fence heading to 6 (tripped myself; I picked one foot up and over wire, but the other one decided to get caught which I didn't expect) and landed on right hip and arm/shoulder, and tore a gash in my tights -- need to fix. Hope no one was blinded by the bright white exposed skin. :-)
On my leg 3-4, the control that some had trouble with (121 rootstock to 135, NW end of shallow ditch, which was also on the Green course), I saw Sharon leaving 3 and heading straight east (on compass?), and I'd already had enough of the medium green (honeysuckle) at that point, so I swung a bit right of the line to skirt the med green and used the gully-to-ditch south of the line as my linear feature and the boulder SW as my attack point, and had no trouble. Sharon punched 135 just ahead of me.
To #5, I never saw the ruined fence, but was fortunate there were a bunch of others in the area, though I think I was okay on compass here.
We both took the powerline and road around 6-7 but I never saw Sharon again after she entered the woods there, by now a good 30 meters ahead.
EDIT--added track to OCIN's Route Gadget
(but I messed up aligning GPS track to 2; drawn track is closer to actual)
