Devils Burden leg 3 for the Border Reivers. After drop out after drop out Jet stepped up as my partner with less 24hours notice. Passed at least 9 teams and some good routes but were too much orienteers on 11 worrying the control wasn’t exactly where we expected (maybe 1min).
Pretty enjoyable/relaxed as the stronger one (and don’t think I was too mean to Jet and tried not to get too competitive as it was a team effort) as after the brutal climb at the start it was all fairly runnable, the sun came out and we had the wind behind.
I’d always wanted to do this race so glad I persevered and raised a team (although there were moments this week I wish I hadn’t bothered!) Hopefully, like this year, it doesn’t clash with the big weekend next year and we can get a couple of strong teams in. Reckon I could have a real go at this leg as now know where it goes and suits my strengths.
