Georgia Navigator Cup Classic Day 1, Brown-X. Great course in good terrain. There were areas of nice open forest, but the majority of the woods were slow, although not unpleasant.

I took a few trail routes, but there were straight options, and I'm pretty sure straight would have been faster in most cases, but the safety trade-off seemed reasonable. I went straight at least once. Anyway, I think it was good course setting. And the control placements were excellent. I hear that was due to the efforts of Mr. o_maps, who was the course consultant. I'd like to get his brain dump.

I was happy with my run. Only one significant time loss I can remember, and it was at the "go" control. I expected it to be on an object in the woods (going by the map, not the description; error #1). I was confused by the roads and ran right by the double-punch control, thinking it was the finish (error #2). Stopped and scratched my head, then walked back to the flag to check the number. Doh!

Second in M65+, 3 minutes behind Piaras de Cleir.

I got up early and ran in the dark. Not my usual preference, but my schedule is starting to get jammed up with meetings and an early run may become the new normal. Garmin awarded me an "Early Bird" badge for my trouble. These badges seem kind of dumb to me, but I am aware that Addie has more of them than I do, so they may have hooked me in.

One thing I've noticed on the few times I've run in the dark before is I have trouble judging how fast I'm going. I don't get enough visual feedback, I guess. That was certainly true this morning. I thought I was cruising right along at my usual pace, maybe even a little faster, but in fact I was slower than on any solo run in the last 2 weeks.

Out in the foggy foggy dew. On its way to a sunny sunny day.
