New map!! WIOL Champs at Lincoln Tree farm. The pre-meet notes had me thinking that this was going to be a great place to run. It was good, but not really white forest. I should have expected that from W. WA. Still, it's great to have a new map and I did enjoy the course.
My run was ok. I got in the start line and Roger immediately got in line behind me. I was pretty good to #1 and #2, but made a slight over-run on 3 and Roger pretty much caught up to me then. From then on Roger and I were ping-ponging back and forth through the course. I would take the more direct off-trail routes and Roger would take the trails. We usually arrived at the flag about the same time. I was trying to push my o-ing by taking riskier routes and go more direct. It was very good practice.
