Gay City red course. Nice course by Jim and Rich. Good conditions and really open woods. Started a bit poorly, thinking I would just see #1 and getting sucked off to the left by the vision of the larger hill across the trail. Then mostly fine 2-5, spent a bit of time N of 6 looking at the under-sized rocks in the area before spying the right one, and a bit of time N of 7, but not as far N as Clint was. He caught me up (for the second time) there and showed me a clean pair of heels. Alone from there, and no more navigational issues, but physically struggling to move and sore in the back, strangely enough mostly on the left this time. Still a lot of work to do if I am ever to run normally again. Saw Nellie well off to my R before #12. Not sure what he was up to. Given the current fitness level, seems unlikely I could have been more than 5 minutes faster no matter how well I navigated.
