MetrO series in Piney Lakes. Have had a sore throat since Thursday and thought it would be hurting while running, but it didn't bother me at all. Thankfully the temperature had dropped from 40 degrees at 14:30 to just under 30 degrees at the time of running. Did almost the same route as Craig, all controls in the same order but just with some different route choices between controls. This makes the splits quite interesting to look at. Gained a minute over Craig over the first five controls and then the difference hovered around that one minute mark for the whole rest of the course. He saw me up ahead many times, but I didn't see him until an out and back with three controls to go. Andries was closer to me over the first part of the course, but he went to collect the western controls and slowed down in the second half.
