Warm up? run to the event. On and off again all morning as the rain and weather looked miserable. By happy coincidence, Nat let me know she was going to run anyway about 10 seconds after I had finished a chunk of editing, so it was opportune just to go. Glad I did, quite nice running, although the hills seems tough and the mushy ground was a bit challenging at times.

Sprint at Weston Creek School. Fun course. I got quite lost looking for 11. Had to flip my map over to work out I was at 28, then 29 and then find 11! A minute lost there. Then a bit slow through a few controls. Feeling better on the second loop in the school, and then Nat and I punched the last pivot together. I pretty well knew where the final 3 controls were so took off at my fastest pace. I was very lucky that Aoife was out cheering me on and reminded me about the 4th last control! I lost 20 seconds there and waved bye to Nat as she continued on her merry way. But Aoife cheering made me try a bit harder, and SI Air saved me some vital milliseconds, so much so that I caught back up at the last control and was ready for a last ditch sprint to the finish, knowing full well that I'd need super powers to pass my nemesis :) But Nat turned back the wrong way, unsure about the cross ability of the green, so a bit of a fizzer :(.
