Blew second control by running past it. Maybe I wasn't used to the scale. Lost a minute+ and found George, who had started one minute behind me, just in front of me. Kind of interesting following him which was a unique experience for me. Didn't know if I should give up or keep pressing. Managed to get a little separation and punched 6 before him. But then really blew 9 as I never saw the trail. Saw George coming a right angles to me and figured he had found it so looped to the left an finally found the trail. I may not have been totally locked in to the trail symbol on sprint maps. Had a quick route to 10 and on the way to 11 encountered George coming back toward me. So then I thought I still had a chance to beat him. 11, 12, and 13 were easy as I had seen them earlier when walking around. 14 fooled me but I figured it out quickly without actually reading the clue sheet. Waited after the finish punch to see when George would come in and if I got my minute back. (I did.) A pretty lame run overall. Wish I had more opportunities to run sprints as I think with practice I'd be pretty good at them. GPS route on RouteGadget.
