Missed the sprints yesterday; memorial service for my mom. Today I was taking an O-break from cleaning, sorting, and discarding duties.
Remembered all my O stuff...except I left my Garmin watch behind. So no track; I will attempt to add my track manually to RouteGadget when available. Distance is estimated based on (edited) nancy
's (I was 10 sec slower). Stats: 4.3 km, 85m climb Mt. Penn map
Cooler than expected so I was cold and running in place while waiting for my start time, but warmed up once I got moving. Some light fog on top of the ridge near start was not a problem once in the woods.
Slow to start because of the rockiness even on trails. Lost a bit of time to 5 at and after the second road. First, I missed the trail to the power one and went all the way to the paved area before figuring it out; second, I was trying to follow trails on the hill WSW of the control and ended up on the wrong one, but figured it out. No problems with the rest; I think AP shows time lost of almost 4 minutes. Good enough for 1st of four in F60 (Janet F, Keg G, and Donna T), and 11 sec behind Nancy D in F55. I'll take it.
Looking forward to the QOC meet next weekend for another mental break.
