trail run warm up/down 5:00 [2] 0.8 km (6:15 / km)
slept:8.0 shoes: Inov8 Oroc 280

very short warm-up to the start
2 PM

race (Long Red-X) 1:20:01 [4] **** 11.0 km (7:16 / km) +470m 6:00 / km
spiked:18/19c shoes: Inov8 Oroc 280

30 m into the race I realized, that I do not ware contact lens, so very cautions tactics were implemented on this course: if I can not read the details, I just had to bring myself on compass into the center of the circle, and hope I can see the bag. That sort of worked, but the need to constantly stop and read the map added ~ from 30 to 60 sec per km. Otherwise, very clean execution, especially first half, long legs routs were not optimal, though. I started this course 30 minutes after everybody, so I had woods to myself, with occasional sightings of Blue runners. Green mapping was sub-par, contours are superb. Interesting course, some short legs are too short, in my opinion.

trail run warm up/down 15:00 [2] 2.2 km (6:49 / km) +60m 6:00 / km
slept:4.5 weight:162lbs shoes: Inov8 OROC280 (2012)

2 PM

race (Red X - Middle) 37:25 [5] **** 5.0 km (7:29 / km) +160m 6:27 / km
spiked:14/18c shoes: Inov8 OROC280 (2012)

Middle at Adams Creek : started conservative, trying to get the green mapping, that paid off, mostly clean up to 12, caught up to Florin (4 min), but navigation started to get sloppy ~ 2 errors on the way to 13 - total ~ 1 min, and on 13 did not read the map right - as a result attacked controls 3 times in the circle, small bubble on 14 ~ 15 sec. No one was clean on this green course. Map and course were excellent.
