HVO brown course at Ward Pound Ridge, 3.9km nominal (counted 160m climb, so Garmin calculation might be wrong; sure seemed like the first half was all uphill, though)
Low 50s with a breeze. Made it feel cold to start but before too long I had my long sleeves pushed up to my elbows. Didn't need headband or gloves.
I wasn't going very fast because I'm still having pain in my left ankle as I walk. (Used the Active Ankle for insurance that I wouldn't twist it unduly.) It took awhile for the endorphins to kick in enough to dull the pain, and I mostly only jogged a few steps on downhills and trails. Even the long downhill leg near the end was tricky underfoot so I wasn't going all out. Commiserated at download with Nadia P., who's hampered by sciatica.
Hesitant near 4 (too high/S), 5 (had to look for the big mapped rock among the smaller unmapped rocky areas), and missed a bit at 9/checked the wrong area when I saw Jane P. and was distracted. AP calls it an error to 2 but I was just slow climbing the hill.
Saw people going into many of the others, including Tony M showing me where to pop between stone walls (the long downhill to 10).
