Woodridge OK event

Eric set the courses and hid the markers. He also likes long, runners legs, so we were in the grass more than the woods. I was the last starter and I told them that I expected to be out 90 minutes, if they wanted to start picking up markers.

Only mistake was being pushed north by the new vegetation as I left 4 and headed to 5. I saw that I would have to cut through the woods a few times, but I decided not to adjust south.

It helps to be familiar with this map, so that I knew about the good deer trails to get into 13.

I looked at my time when I got to 13 and was startled to see it was 53 minutes. I began to panic that I had skipped a control. But then I decided to see if I could make it back under 1:10, so I ran hard on the road to the finish. Just made it!

The overall times were fairly fast, but still this was a really good run for me. I haven't pushed hard in a long time. It didn't feel that hard, and I walked plenty of times. But Garmin gave me a 4.9 for aerobic effort and suggested that I rest for 70 hours.

Warm and windy day was good for working at the event. We had a good turnout and lots of returning folks who had come to our other winter events. It sucks that our wood's season is so short.
