This was an absolutely horrible race, starting on the first control. The start was at a 3-way intersection. I didn't orient my map, took a quick look, and said, "I don't want to go right," so I took the trail to the left. Big mistake! The trail that I rejected on the map was the walk up to the start. The trail to the right in the terrain is the one I wanted. The trail to the left is the one that I took. And what was worse is that the features on the wrong trail lined up with the features I was looking for (at least, they lined up in my head). When I missed the control, I assumed I had made a parallel error, and adjusted accordingly. When that also failed to find the control, I was completely lost! By the time I finally figured out where I was and got to the first control, I had been on the course for 35:41 already (almost 32 minutes of lost time), and almost 1.8 miles. Once I found myself, I stayed found, but I had a strong tendency to veer too far right all day long, causing more significant time losses along the way.

The only saving grace for the race was that I didn't finish DFL. One person even had more time lost than I did
