WCOC's WRE at Ansonia. Brown (M75) 2.5km
A little chilly, but otherwise a nice day. My body seemed to be willing today, but not my brain. Started with a mis-punch at #1, I think the only control where I didn't check the code. Drifting off to one side or the other on most controls, especially #7 where I spent some time looking around the wrong cliff line well off to the right. I was more disappointed with the lost time at #7 than the mis-punch.
I was a poll worked for today's election. This is the first time I've tried this. My official title was Machine Inspector. This entails helping bringing up the voting machines (2) to start the day, assisting voters in the use of the machines and taking them down at the end of the day. There was a steady stream of voters all day, with a few bursts. I was surprised at the number of voters considering that the most significant office contested was County Executive. It also seemed like a large number (most?) either had never voted before or in a long time (or maybe they have just forgotten the process since last year). Long day: We ( E and I) arrived before 5:30AM and didn't leave until after 9:30PM.

Fall Back Into the Trails 10K & 50K Did the 10K option. This is the same route as the July run except in the reverse direction. Around freezing at the start, but lots of sun (and lots of climb) warmed things up nicely. As in the past I, and many others, walked the steeper hills.
