NAOC Sprint (Course 3)
Tried to run hard and mostly succeeded. Left to #1, left to #2, left to #3, and right to #4. Small error on #5 by not going straight at the first intersection - got to climb and descend a small hill. Doubled back out of #5 and spiked #6 and #7. Bobbled #8 a bit and ended up at the trail junction just south of it, but recovered quickly. Spiked #9 and then had my one goof (65 seconds) when I veered left going for #10 and was lost for too long on the trail. Spiked 11-16. Almost blew #17 as I came in between two thickets, but as I didn't see the flag where I expected on the left, I looked right and recovered a lot faster than most other folks.
Ran just under 8 min/km which is fast for me even for a sprint. 34th out of 107 on the course. Only downer is that it isn't earning me the AttackPoint score that I thought I deserved - particularly by comparison to my other races.
