NSW Long Distance at Roseberg SF. I had thought I'd run here previously but have not. This explains why I had no idea where we were going in the morning and drove via Cowra (i.e. double the distance required), but at least got phone reception and coffee there...
After a very long wait until my start, set off pretty well. A bit wayward to 1 (very easy and short leg of course). Was channelling Kent Olson really well until 5 but from there was letting the fallen timber push me about. Losing time on all the subsequent controls (6 too far up hill, 7 unable to read map properly and went to wrong boulder, 8 all over the shop, 9 got distracted by others who I knew were too high). Can't believe I got a good split to 10 - what was everyone doing???? And 11, I told myself to run home but had nothing left... Not sure why I got so tired for a 6km course!
