Tarrywil, Red, 6.7 km, 295m, 4th. Oof. I didn't so much run this as survive it (AP guessed it to be hiking, as opposed to yesterday which it guessed as running). The course was standard Tarrywile stuff, it's just tough to make a course here that isn't brutal, because of the topography. But it was a warm day, and the climbs sapped me. Navigated okay for the first seven, then on #8, I hunted around for a while in a bunch of cliffs on the hillside, twice spotting a control that turned out to be something else when I got closer -- fortunately, the second time it was the right feature after all. On #9 my route was fine, but I overshot the control a bit into an area that I did not recognize for what it was, but I eventually looked back and saw the control on the previous hill. #11 was disheartening because all of the altitude gained in the previous legs had to be thrown away on a steep, dicey descent, followed by another climb. #12 was just plain dumb -- I never saw the far superior right-hand route until I looked at the splits and saw how badly I had done on the leg. And although going pretty much straight from the last control to the finish seemed pretty clever, it evidently didn't pay off.
Very nice to spend the day with Nancy and Stephen, who won the Brown and Orange courses respectively.
