Oi... Right out of the start, knowing most everyone was going W toward cemetary, I aligned my map, acknowledged to myself that GreenX was going a different way and took off to the N, getting three buildings down by 14 at a fast clip before realizing the error and doubling back
2nd control went low on road and up stairs, quick glance to description 'part of' column, 2nd row, outside corner, went through green and low, no flag. Reread description, first row was start triangle, not control 1, therefore I wanted row 3, inside corner. Up there... %/&@$!!
Settled down for a bit, but definitely shaken... Punched 11 and headed for 12, glance at map as I rounded the corner and my eyes focused on 14 and there I went. Code didn't match, realized it was 14 and I hadn't gone to 13, off to 13 and back to 14, still not going to 12... crap..
Couple minor bobbles on second loop, but finished strong, then found the MSP.. 2nd DNF for the weekend. Still, had fun...
