When it comes to cars, they say that there is no replacement for dispacement when it comes to engine power, and this is true in sports as well. There is no magic here, can't replace real training with an armchair quarterbacking and hope for a good result in the woods. While I had an okay Day1 run and even had some flow on long legs, I completely came apart physically on Day2, pretty much from the start, and had to simply settle in for a jog in the woods. Disappointing? Yes! Unexpected?, No! Congrats to the medalists and thanks for QOC for putting on a fine event.
