San Francisco Sprint Weekend at Bedwell Bayfront Park in Menlo Park. This track is both the first and second course. I forgot to clear my watch in between and just stopped and restarted it.
The first course was pretty straight forward. The second course had no trails on the map and we were allowed to skip one. I skipped number 17, which was between splits 27 and 28 on this track. Without the trails, the navigation was a combination of rough navigation by contours and precision navigation by vegetation, rocks, and man-made features.
The first sprint was in mass-started heats of about 7 people per heat. In the finish chute, Gavin caught me and we ended up punching in a tie. I didn't realize it was him behind me and figured it was someone faster from the later heat. I wonder if I could have pushed any harder if I'd known it was him?
