1. 885m 9:09 3 +1:49 25% 91.7 10:20   885m 9:09 3 +1:49 25% 10:20 Down the trail then along the power lines to the top of the hill. Over from there reading the marshes on my left. When I reached the big cliffs on my right I cut left to spike it.
2. 210m 2:36 7 +1:20 105% 63.2 40 41 12:22   1095m 11:45 4 +3:09 37% 10:43 As I took off, I noticed Eddie Bergeron coming from behind. I knew we were headed to the same control so I rushed ahead. In the process I passed the control. Coming back I could see Eddied leaving it.
3. 1275m 12:27 5 +3:09 34% 86.2 1:00 9:45   2370m 24:12 4 +6:18 35% 10:12 I took off straight not seeing the trail option to the right. I glimpsed Eddie some and noticed he was moving to my left. I started to lose my place getting to the power lines but could makeout the water to my left. I cut right a bit and mistook one reentrant for a similarly shaped but larger marsh. This lead me to turn left onto the wrong ridge. At the end of the short ridge there was a hut of sorts which set me straight again. Going straight I reached the correct ridge and thought I left the trail there at a rock. I used a steepening of the hillside to clue me in and saw it from 70m away.
4. 270m 2:53 5 +35 25% 87.5 10:40   2640m 27:05 4 +6:53 34% 10:15 I chose not to contour around partly because I've mess-up similar controls that way.
5. 1440m 13:40 4 +3:57 41% 81.1 2:00 48 9:29   4080m 40:45 4 +10:50 36% 9:59 As I left #4 and went up the ridge I saw about 4 others headed to it. This was incentive to run fast which I did. Once I was headed downhill on the ridge I read more carefully and noticed the bend in the trail prior to the vague intersection. I cut left soon after then went along some marshy areas getting near; this wasn't efficient since it made an S-curve back toward the power lines. I figured I'd seen the high area on the power lines so I cut left a little too soon. There were many saddles in the area and I checked a few running without reading much. In the process I missed and got about to the trail before turning back and finding it not far from whence I had been before.
6. 435m 4:04 2 +47 24% 96.6 15 9:20   4515m 44:49 4 +11:37 35% 9:55 Not pleased to introduce error to a much better run than the day before I ran a good pace on a straight bearing. I corrected along the way when I saw an appropriate knoll. I was a little left but got to the right knoll. A young woman from West Point stopped me pleading her case to show her where we were on the map--reluctantly I did and lost some time.
7. 705m 10:25 8 +5:37 117% 59.0 4:00 3:17 14:46   5220m 55:14 4 +17:14 45% 10:34 My plan was to go down the spur of the ridge that #6 was on then come around the green on the flat open ground; then curling up to the control. I was quick going down and didn't pace count. The hill never seemed to flatten out enough so I fought my way through some green about 170m past where I should have. I surmised that the green had grown a bit. I realized the error once I stopped and executed a good correction back to the ridge where I could follow it around in open ground to the control.
8. 480m 18:55 9 +15:09 402% 23.6 13:00 13:44 39:24   5700m 1:14:09 8 +32:23 78% 13:00 Not happy about another error, and worse than #5 at that, I rushed off on a straightish bearing after Ross who had gotten to #7 from an other direction just ahead of me. Ross' line was to the right and because I'd not read the leg I didn't see he was headed to the trail. After fighting my way through the green I hit the trail and went past it trying to get to the marsh to relocate. I couldn't get through the thorns. I tried 3 separate areas. The several similar rock walls confused me. I eventually came back to the trail and ran up it to stop at a cemetary. It took me a while to find the cemetary on the map. Once I did it was easy.
9. 270m 3:23 6 +1:26 74% 67.0 45 45 12:31   5970m 1:17:32 8 +33:49 77% 12:59 Again not happy about another race with a big error leg I rushed out on a straight bearing. I hit a wall and followed it up right into the out-of-bounds area. Backing down I twisted through some thorns to go left around the out-of-bounds and slowly into the control.
10. 210m 1:27 3 +11 14% 92.7 6:54   6180m 1:18:59 7 +33:57 75% 12:46 Out to the road... Started to go the wrong way but corrected after half a step.
11. 157m 2:17 9 +1:15 121% 52.8 30 53 14:32   6337m 1:21:16 7 +35:12 76% 12:49 Remembering from the relay that some had said cutting through the thick area was not bad, I started to by looking for an opening on the left. I didn't find it until I came back to the tunnel. It was slow going through the thick area and I popped out to the left of the control.
12. 240m 1:37 4 +16 20% 91.8 6:44   6577m 1:22:53 7 +35:28 75% 12:36 Down to the road quick then across. As I ran the grassy area I saw Gail Gagarin running on the trail and worried that she might miss it. She didn't have this control.
13. 300m 1:20 1 0% 100.8 4:26   6877m 1:24:13 6 +35:26 73% 12:14 Dance my way down the rocks to the trail then I picked up the pace on the parking lot.
14. 120m 24 3 +3 14% 93.1 3:20   6997m 1:24:37 7 +35:26 72% 12:05 I really thought I was running faster than this...
