Running 1:21:58  7.05 mi (11:38 / mi) +482m 9:35 / mi
Woke up with the sore throat a bit worse, but still had good energy, so decided to go for it. But knowing I was at least somewhat sick, I raced conservatively, never letting myself fully push on uphills or trail runs. That worked out alright, as I ended up winning by a bunch after a pretty clean race.
Biggest issues were:
2 - Initially overshot, not having gone high enough on the slope. Backtracked when I found a pit instead of a depression.
7 - Got confused at the beginning of the trail run, when the trail split in two and I hadn’t been paying enough attention to realize either was ok, it was just a short fork.
12 - My contact got torn in two by a tree branch and made it really hard for me to see through my left eye. I tried to take it out, to no avail. Then Kseniya and West Pointer passed me, and I knew going to my next control so I followed. But we all got lost, heading too high from the (unmapped) stream bed. Afterwards, I coped with my eye and orienteered on my own, albeit a bit slower.
