rain/darkness/thunder right as I was starting. felt a little hesitant through the first few controls, and I had to work hard to stay concentrated, but managed to do so sufficiently well enough until 11, where I sort of spaced out after crossing the trail on the way up the hill. some time lost being uncertain, then went to exactly the right place with low confidence, didn't see the flag, and wasted another 90s or so before Ross came running by and led me back to the control. chased him around to the last few. felt ok physically despite minimal sleep, though maybe that was a factor at 11. not a terrible result, but much too big of a mistake to be satisfied with.
track from the i-gotU logger looks decent, I had it on 1s intervals with the idea that I could always thin out the points later when cutting up the GPX tracks. probably 2-3s would be fine too. I wore it in the middle of my back through the HRM strap, and also wore a Forerunner 60 (no gps) that I got just for the occasion...I figured that would be easiest to download and worth testing against AP anyway. cut up the GPX, then merged HR using sporttracks, though they may be slightly out of sync since I had to set the clock on the FR60 manually.
very nice course and terrain. didn't recognize any of it (except the playground) from the last a-meet here. just noticed...from the google street map view, it looks like the area around blue #8-9 is subdivided for housing development? that would be a bummer unless it's for a WCOC clubhouse;-)
