Beautiful day, nice area and great course set by Jim A. So so run (B) with time dropped on #2 (confused by mapping) and 6 (got well off line to S and had to run extra 400m), plus general hesitations/ low confidence and just sluggish- so maybe 4-5 mins- not enough to catch tp who had a great run out there today. SL=5k
Had fun anyway and enjoyed hanging out in the sunshine later, followed by very pleasant dinner with Bob, Beth and Hans.

Re run of Night O in daylight for comparison purposes and with the intent to go straight and simplify. Humid and glasses fogged again - ran 1 km shorter than at night- SL was 5.4k. Not a bad run but not perfect with 2 problems (didn't have correct surface visualization for route from 7 to 8 and got confused by wall/reentrant head and had problems again with 11 - swamps difficult to determine and got too far west. Better route choice to 10 going high and around to trail. Otherwise some hesitancies- legs were tired from yesterday so walked some hills-could have seen 45- hats off to Ali for 50 mins at night on this one.
