Mt. Tom Day 2. Finally a good run, and I felt like I did about the best I could. A few things could have been improved, and the little things add up.
On #1, I planned to go around the pond but found myself climbing up the stairs to the top of the escarpment. It was easy reading the terrain from there, but a couple extra contours and some distance added.
On #4, I got off the trail and up onto the spur a little early, came down into the reentrant and went for a different control, which turned out to be on a boulder rather than a cliff. Ran straight to the cliff after that.
I overran #6, saw the stream and came back, saw the boulder control just to the N, then finally hit the right one in the reentrant.
From 9 to 10 I ran on the trail all the way, around the drainage, across the small road, through the green and downhill right along the cliff edge. The control was just 10m off the trail bend. I thought for sure it was the best route, but it turns out going up to the road was faster. I still can't believe it.
Anyway, a fun course and I could hardly be happier with my performance, in the rain, no glasses, magnifier useless. Loving it.
