Day 1 Blue at GNC. Stumbled pretty badly out of the start (figuratively, that is) and made mistakes on 1, 2, 4 and 5 before I settled down and grokked the map. After that it was pretty good. Will post splits later and assess the actual damage.
Steady rain and 40 degrees made things a little more trying, Terrain was fun, not too steep and lots of intricate ditches and gullies, some deep with almost vertical sides. Light to moderate undergrowth. Some trail running.
Most importantly, it's not below zero.
