FVO night race, Doune (in what is left of the woodland).

I really need to find a way to get to these night races earlier rather than just in time for the start! Just like two weeks ago, got running okay without a warmup but the warmup seems to be needed to get my brain working.....

So, all over the place early on (far from alone in this!). Gradually managed to get into things navigation-wise after #8. Brad, Roger, Fi and Fanni all still around too and gradually things strung out a bit. Caught Fraser leaving #11 and Dixie at #12, but went round not straight at the last part of #12 and Rog got away with a bit of a gap. Caught back up to Rog at #18 with Fraser still close behind, got the way through the ponds quickest so punched the penultimate at #19 ahead, but was no match for Rog on the run from there to the end.

All good fun particularly the racing towards the end. Shocking start though, got to #6 after 17 minutes (GG and Will were off the front and there in 8 mins). The rest took them 32/35 respectively and took me 39, so things did improve a bit...just as well as otherwise I would have been out there for a very long time.....
