DVOA Schock's Rocks Score-O at Governor Dick
Distance from Garmin
My main plan was to stay in the nicer woods, out of the super green and rocky areas. I hiked the entire time and only ran a teeny bit out of the start.
I stopped at both bathroom/water stops, oddly enough at almost exactly the 1 hour (between controls 61 & 33) and 2 hour (between controls 82 & 85) marks.
Having more than 20 minutes left, I probably could have gotten at least one more at the end (53) but decided it wasn't worth risking the penalty. I was also pretty tired and ready to be done.
I was amazed to end up 2nd female and 10th overall, considering I didn't feel like I was pushing very hard. Strategy seemed to be a big part of the results.
I was cold in my short sleeves when I arrived at the park, and stupidly had not brought a longer sleeve o top. I debated a bit and then decided to add a regular light hoodie that I had along, and that was probably the right choice. At times (especially climbing) I was warm, but when the wind picked up I was glad to have another layer.
