Day 2, Southams Road West near Kitchener. Felt a bit slow and Nick Dent was up 2 minutes by #6. First real mistake at #11 where I didn't aim off and turned the wrong way after running to a flag that wasn't mine. That put Nick 3:30 up but he gave away 1:30 at the next where I ran back through the start. A couple of fastest splits and I closed the gap to 1:25 by the end. Meanwhile, Ted Van G had a 4 minute lead at #11, but lost 6 minutes on the clearing at #17 and eventually finished 11th, 5 minutes down on Nick.
