Green X Day 1 at Mt. Tom. Very nice course set by Phil with lots of technical stuff and good route choices. Started and finished up near the top of the ridge. Lost 3 minutes on the first control by trying to go straight rather than take the trail, then lost another 2 min on 2 and relocating where the stream hit the trail. Settled down after that and did OK except for losing map contact going to 11 and lucking out to relocate when I saw a bag on the stream junction just north of the beeline. Lost another minute or two on hesitations while executing various legs. Total errors about 8 minutes. 2nd in M55, 6th overall on Green X (M50, 55 and 60).
Overcast and 50's with a few sprinkles during the race.
Whacked my shin just above the ankle on the end of a log just after #11. Ouch!
