1. 1280m 15:51 2 +2:30 19% 2:00 12:22   1280m 15:51 2 +2:30 19% 12:22 I'm wasn't surprised when I flipped over the map and saw this long leg to start because I didn't really know what I could trust to see off of the map. I didn't have a problem keeping track of my forward progress, but left and right was a bit harder. At the bottom of the big spur I did know exactly where I was, where the ditch runs into the stream, so I knew I was left and crossed over the rocky top of the spur. Headed over the top and went right to the reentrant and didn't see the control, so I went back to the left and wandered around for a bit. Eventually I figured I just must not have gone far enough and went back. I'm pretty sure I was just above the control and never saw it the first time. Bummer.
2. 400m 3:21 1 -30 -13% 8:22   1680m 19:12 2 +2:00 12% 11:25 No problems here, ran the line and you could see the bag from across the main reentrant.
3. 680m 8:37 2 +12 2% 30 12:40   2360m 27:49 2 +2:12 9% 11:47 Suffered from reverse contour issues here, thinking that the big reentrant curling up to the control was a weirdly shaped spur. Took more than a few seconds to figure that out, then no problems.
4. 670m 9:14 2 +2:14 32% 2:00 13:46   3030m 37:03 2 +4:26 14% 12:13 Went way right of the line for no good reason. I'm still not sure what I was seeing when I hit the first trail, because it looked like a really big reentrant and there's nothing like that where I could have been. I was pretty confused. In any case, my solution was to take the trail up to just before all the rocks to get a positive awareness of my position and then contoured across the spur, checked off the rocky stuff to my left and hit the boulder.
5. 450m 5:23 2 +44 16% 11:57   3480m 42:26 2 +5:10 14% 12:11 Mildly contoured around the spur and hit the trail by the rocky features and right over to the little reentrant. The control seemed to be a lot further than it seemed on the map. Another one of those short distance deceptions.
6. 450m 5:09 2 +1:04 26% 11:26   3930m 47:35 2 +6:14 15% 12:06 Went just right of the line, probably wouldn't have hurt to hop on the trail for half of it, since it was just next to me.
7. 500m 5:59 1 -1:07 -16% 1:30 11:58   4430m 53:34 2 +5:07 11% 12:05 This one was a little trickier. Planned to run down the hillside aiming right until I hit the second trail, then dropping down the secont reentrant. Would have worked had I seen the first trail. Crossed the second one expecting and then realized that I must have passed both of them, so I just kind of haphazardly headed left and down the first reentrant. Since I could tell that there was another one further left, I knew that had to be it and hopped over the little nose, ended up below the control.
8. 510m 5:20 1 -1:17 -19% 1:00 10:27   4940m 58:54 2 +3:50 7% 11:55 Planned to run just left of the mild spur and then cutting right at the rootstocks. But at the rootstocks I spied a bag in a "ditch" and went straight for it. I was actually in the stream well to the left of the control, but that was clear so I was able to get to the right place quickly.
9. 900m 13:20 2 +14 2% 3:30 14:48   5840m 1:12:14 2 +4:04 6% 12:22 This was a big booboo. Plenty of features along the line to collect, and I thought I was doing a great job doing so. Crossed the stream just right of the marsh, knew I was just right of the line. Passed the next stream right of the intersection, knew I was still about the same amount right, so I was on a good line. Shut the brain off, crossed the ridge and dropped right down to... number 10! The intersection by the second stream was actually the intersection ~150m downstream from the one I thought I was on. Should have been obvious had I continued to read the map well. At least I knew where I was when I got there, even though I didn't realize it was 10 until I was already on my way towards 9, so at least I knew I was right of the bag...
10. 310m 2:42 1 -8 -5% 8:42   6150m 1:14:56 2 +3:56 6% 12:11 Well, this was pretty straight forward, plus I'd already been there...
11. 360m 3:00 1 -44 -20% 8:20   6510m 1:17:56 2 +3:12 4% 11:58 This was the one leg where I actually measured the distance and tried pace counting, but I did both poorly and ran into the bag rather a bit by luck, well before I thought I should have.
12. 820m 7:49 2 +16 4% 20 9:31   7330m 1:25:45 2 +3:28 4% 11:41 I should have been able to just blast through this leg, given the wonderful backstop of the stream and the big corner right before the control. But I didn't realize that until I got really close, so my approach for the last 200 meters or so was good, beating out a pair of people who'd been gaining ground ahead of me on the rest of the leg.
13. 260m 2:20 1 -1:11 -34% 10 8:58   7590m 1:28:05 2 +2:17 3% 11:36 I was actually confused here and wanted to cross the stream to go straight to the control, rather than along the big horsey trail. I guess I'd gotten into straight line mode pretty heavily.
14. 170m 1:08 2 +32 89% 6:40   7760m 1:29:13 3 +2:49 3% 11:29 What a brutal finish shute! Yikes! Pretty exhausted. And bleeding on all four major appendages!
