Tyler Score-O. Can't believe I forgot my watch at home. Had to take my phone with me so that I wasn't overtime. I would check it periodically to make sure I was on track to get back in time and I did the last couple of controls with my phone in my hand to make sure I made the cut-off (which I did with a minute or so to spare).

Didn't have a real plan, just a vague loop in mind that looked like it would be a nice walk with time for a loop of 6 controls that would require some navigation if I had time. I set some limits - for example, I had to start back across the bridge to the Start/Finish with at least 20 minutes - and then just had fun. I tried jogging a few steps but my hamstrings were still so tight that it was painful and I was afraid I'd injure myself so just kept to a walk.

Did reasonably well score wise although I didn't even realize different controls were worth different points until about 40 minutes in when I figured out what was going on. I guess I wasn't at all prepared for this! But had fun so it's all good.
