QOC Great Falls. The Park Service places severe constraints on our courses, so they're always a little convoluted. But the woods and the terrain are so great that it's worth the work. I ran better today than I ever have at this park, and ran 18 really good controls, but there were also 2 horribles. I'm not sure I can completely explain what happened, but I wasn't paying as close attention to the landforms as I was the rest of the time.
I lost about 17 minutes on 11, trying various approaches and finally going all the way down to the trail, running around the circumference of the hill and still failing at first to recognize the right reentrant. The state of confusion persisted through #12, and from then on I was good again.
