Middle US Champs @ Lynn Woods.
So, this was a definite disaster. Missed badly on #1...I took 20 steps off the trail and was already unsure of where I was. I did fine on 2-4, but was thrown off by the extra water around #5. Tried desperately to fit the "ponds" to the map, but couldn't. I eventually figured out they were not on the map, got smart about the contours, and was able to find the control. Good for 6-9. On #10, I couldn't initially force myself to get far enough away from the trails to find the boulder. Good on 11 and 12, but after leaving 12, I fell on the rocks and totally bashed my knee. I said a very bad word. Luckily, that happened at the end. After I finished, I sought out Dr. Lux, who fixed me up.
Not a good day.
