A good day at Mt. Tom.
One brain-bomb going from 4 to 6 for about 35 seconds before realizing it (glad I did) but there was a trail from there to 5 an it only cost me about the 35 seconds.
Some misc. sloppiness, incl. nearly a minute hesitation later when unsure of rocks at NE corner, plus another minute or two of laziness/sloppiness out in that area.
Took a brazen way-around-right route to the 2nd-to-last control that worked out well. In retrospect this was one of the best route-choice legs I've ever seen in terms of number of reasonable choices - probably 5 or so that are more than 50% distinct from each other. An earlier route choice got us out to that road (apparently most Red runners didn't see that choice on a similar leg.
HR is reasonable, but median split delta of 24% suggests either I was slow, or just too sloppy a bunch of the time. I think this terrain, like Big Basin, is very hard to do really well the first time, perhaps due to some map fuzziness, or terrain bumpiness?
