Nice navigating on the Long. Looked really clean.
I did a synced run you vs Emma Waddington. You were neck and neck, with you leading, perhaps, up to #10. Then she took the right route through that corridor and gained a ton of time. I know she's a faster runner, but I still think you might have done better going right. What do you think?

Have fun on the relay!

Also, it was amazing to watch you & Maelle running neck and neck. She must have caught and passed you 4 times. And then she'd make a mistake. Have you talked to her about it? What was it like psychologically, to keep seeing her over and over?

OK, I looked again: Maelle caught you going to 4, and pulled away after 5. Then she had a bobble and you caught her at 6. Then she took the road route to 10 which looks better to me; they really encourage you to go by the water control on the map tho, weird. Anyway, then she did something weird 10-11 and you caught her right before the green with the cliffs on the left. She pulled ahead but then made another mistake and you beat her to 11 and were ahead until she caught you on the way to 15 after you made a little error to the right. So she caught up to you twice and you caught up to her twice. Your navigation was steadier and she was faster.
