O - competition race (Grafton State Pk NY) 1:32:20  7.9 km (11:42 / km) +119m 10:52 / km
Nice red course set by Glen. Pretty flat and mostly good running, with wet areas from this past week of rain.
Some mistakes: low on 4, but in right area as I kept the pace count going and was accurate on the distance; had to search a fair amount before I climbed up and spotted the control (5 min). Ran along the ridge straight to 7, but ran well past my pace count and decided I was on the next ridge N, so cut over, spotted the trail bend to the NW and realized I had been correct all along. Back over to the first ridge and found the bag right away, maybe 10 m further and over the crest from where I had given up (2 min). Was R on 8 and again had the right distance, guessed I had to go left and found the 2 m boulder sitting in some hemlocks (1 min). Didn't like 9, the control was a 0.7 m rock on the top R corner of a marsh, except it was really in the middle on the L. That took a lot of circling and two relocations before I found it between the microboulder and a tree (8 min).
All a fine workout and practice with a variety of errors.
