I went out a little to fast which of course led to botching 1. I wasn’t quite as far N as I thought so I turned around and backtracked thinking I had passed it. I still tried to keep up my pace for the rest of the course, which went better but still led to a lot of small errors in the circle. Good to push physically but I need to improve my map reading to reduce errors.
We had been to this map 1.5 years ago, but this section was a little more scrubby from recent rain and wind. Still better than woods we have in eastern Pa!
We got some entertainment watching cars attempting to pull out of the very muddy arena parking while enjoying French fries from a food truck! Really fun set up!
