A terrific day in the Niagara region woods! Steady pace with bent and tarno kept it sane and totally fun.
Early in in the run I quietly put my maps away and was pleasantly content to be a passenger on the tarnobent bus.
I understand from all the muttering that we lost a minute or two here and there, and for that I judged them a little bit, but silently. Like in my head. And using only my inside voice ("The Griz wouldn't have pulled a move like that."--stuff like that). Outwardly I remained placid, genially urging the two of them to use more care in their route choices. Every now and then I looked at my compass meaningfully to confirm I was pulling my weight. Mostly, though, I just looked around because that's my highest and best use in events like this, and I like to play to my strengths.
Lovely course DGL people! Thanks for giving us a fine Sunday in the woods. Nice work with clearing the clouds away more race too. That worked out nicely.
