Second day at Quincy Lakes South, a map which has only been used for one other event way back in 2013, and that was not a Cascade event but rather a Peteris homebrew special.
Ran okay, not as well as the previous day (unsurprisingly). Didn't have the same energy or sharpness. I started well enough, despite a bad route to 4, but from 9 onward found myself becoming mentally unfocused and making silly mistakes like losing contact/direction and drifting (9, 10, 12), being on the wrong side of the feature and becoming inordinately confused (15), or not checking the map or descriptions closely and expecting the flag to be on a spur instead of the reentrant top 5m away (11). Nothing major, just irksome ~30s bobbles for no real reason other than carelessness. On the way to 11 I caught a glimpse of Eric as he headed to 6; he ended up getting me by a minute and change.
Still, another really fun race and an excellent weekend with ideal weather and great company.
