Nice day for a jaunt at Hurd. Although I hit all the controls cleanly, some of my route choices may have been a bit specious. Taking chances with green where avoidance would have been preferable, also some wandering off the line to minimize deep fern and barberry patches, neither of which impact visibility, but certainly aren't easy to run through due to obscured obstacles underfoot.
Still no watch band, so started GPS, then stowed watch in fanny pack before punching start and the reverse procedure at the end, so likely 30-60 seconds longer than my official time. Also toward end of course (11ish?) a branch caught the cord on my shorts, so kept hiking up loose shorts over the last few controls - too stubborn to just stop and retie - doh!
