Race Evaluation

OCIN East Fork Sprints: "Long" Sprint

mikeminium

1. stayed north of direct line to use open forest instead of green. a little tired from the trail run before, so I was less than 100% for entire race. Seemed like low obstacles (logs, etc) were more work than usual.
2. Hesitated
+00:10
a little hesitant, but this control in a small reentrant was a good place to be careful. The map is a little weak in places, so cautrion may not have been a bad thing.
3. only slowed down by brush & forest debris
4. Bad map reading
+00:05
startled a jrotc instructor out of his skin when I blew by him from behind... About 10 yards away, I said something like "hi,. how's it going" hoping to avoid startling him, but I was too close & coming too fast, and he jumped & hollered something like Oh my gosh! Hey, that;s why they call it a SPRINT! went a little right fo teh line, but quickly figured out when I started down a reentrant that I needed to turn left.
5. nice opportunity to use a trail.
6. across the bridge & attacked from trail bend.
7. easy
8. +00:05a little hesitant... easy leg down teh stream, but it seemed like I ran forever before I saw the control. map distortion or brain freeze?
9. hit the path at the bend, it seemed like a long way up the hill to the ruined rootstock.
10. +00:05pretty fast, cut teh wiggling bend sof teh path & attacked from path bend, went a little right but not bad, caught it quickly.
11. Bad route choice
Tired
Not thinking clearly
+00:05
took too long winding by trail, should have cut the corner but lacked confidence... of course,there was some green n the way, so it could have been slower...
12. passing #3 as I aimed off slightly to the right, made a great attack point.
13. easy
14. easy
15. punched thru the rough open & a few brambles.
16. hesitated just a little, seemed like the control was farther down hill toward the parking lot than I expected.
17. out of the woods & SPRINT!
F. SPRINT! Watch the cars as the last leg crossed the busy beach parking lot.
