OLOU German Ridge red course. DanOLOU
beat me by two minutes and David_Waller
by one. Steep area with a lot of deadfall and greenbriar.
I couldn't get over the eerie feeling of having travelled through time, though, as I re-learnt how to use a manual punch card!
By the time I climbed the monster hill to number 14, I was really feeling the early spring heat and the dehydration (no drinking weater on the course). As I approached 14, a runner leaving it actually asked me if I needed water. Was I so far gone that I had actually been chanting "agua fria, agua fria" out loud instead of just thinking it as I staggered up the hill? Anyway, I respectfully declined, which probably didn't do anything to help my mental acuity as I proceeded to make a small mistake approaching 15. Other than that and some small bobbles on 1 and 10, it was really a pretty clean run.
