Rogaine race (CNYO XXII) 18:00:00  *** 60.0 km (18:00 / km)
26c slept:0.0 shoes: 340 ORoc 2010
First loop - ccw northern part -
Rugged terrain, so no significant running. Lots of FDFs, and lots of bramble forest regrowth - very, very slow going and plenty of bloodletting.
Hydration & fueling went well - tired in the wee hours, but no real energy issues. Only cramping was during an extended break @ 2130.
beginning of heel blister, borrowed real nice tape from Pavel, need to get some of that. No issues after taping.
Lights worked ok, but took safe night routes rather than extended cross country legs at night.
Wasted a lot of time on a number of mishung controls, some never found but credited, others eventually located on dubious 'features' nearby. A couple never found.
Only dropped two controls from our initial northern loop, most due to falling behind schedule on treasure hunts. Slowing down & Sunday AM issues meant our southern loop plans were really nothing like planned.
Considering I havent done this in 10 years, quite happy with the final score.
