Ros successfully completed the yellow course (which was more orange in control difficulty) 2.1k in 57min. With 5k run last weekend and age group placement she's on a roll.
Heavy damage to cc at Russells though :-) but all planted before next rain squall.

Relative to Estabrook a good map and runnable woods. Nominal distance 6.1km. Legs heavy from recent runs, nonetheless decent run thru 12 (especially from 7) then fatigue-induced errors on next 2 legs dropping about 3 mins. If fresh would aim for low 50s - may rerun this one.
Had rain visor today which really helped vision.

Hot, humid, thick damp woods- yes it's Estabrook in June. Challenging but interesting red course set by Ian F; nominal 7.01k. Noted the warnings about swamps and strategically ignored them :-). 9-10 couldn't find marked stream crossing and subsequently face planted in a mud bath- glasses, map compass , clue sheet all covered in thick goo. 11-12 took the "reasonable" choice of following a submerged rock wall into chest high water - cleaned things off nicely! Otherwise heavy legged but steady run - 4-5 minutes squandered but nothing major as I kept speed down today - a good thing especially given vagaries of mapping in some parts of the map. US team M21 and W21 folk ahead then Tim P in 64 ish and Ernst in 67+.
Boston Common park O today- really have to make the effort to do this one - gear ready; check: body ready;check maybe!- brain -: ? we'll see at end of day :-)

Avoided the major downpour. Interesting to run on the common and nice sprint-type course by Lori. Nominal dist 2.8k. Reasonable run with 1 bobble (30sec) and route choice that could have been better (15-20 sec)- otherwise not anticipating direction changes well enough and fumbling with punches.
