You had a good time on this leg. What was your route?

Trail running to the white block, and diagonally across there to the hill edge (a little right of the control) and down the hill edge.

Two factors - I walked and checked the map and did my compass setting for the white section before I ran, so that I had the whole leg clear in mind before I left and didn't really look, but checked off on the map as I went.

Second - I took a few of my splits late after punching, and cannot tell if 9 was or was not one of them. I imagine it would have been 4 or 5 seconds if that was the case. (and made 8-9 longer and 9-10 shorter than actual)

I do remember moving very well through the white. Just when I was getting antsy about getting to the flag, I pressed on for 5 meters or so and then saw it.

I took more or less the same route. I think I slowed a bit to navigate (and recover from the long trail run) once I hit the woods. Nice job.

When I was experimenting re-running Webster I came to see how slow navigating in white can be compared to running through. Think I "knew" that before, but it wasn't so obvious until I did the same section twice - first time checking for a good route and picking my way through, the second time confidently picking up my feet and pushing straight through.
