QOC Mason Neck Twisted Score-O - was committed to be at the event in order to pick up the VA controls and some other equipment needed next weekend so ran the score-O despite still feeling very poorly. Didn't try to run very hard. Started off assuming that I probably could nevertheless clean the course if I didn't make any big mistakes, which turned out to be just barely true. Going around in a big counter-clockwise loop, I hit my second dot knoll/bonus control, six or seven controls in, so the mystery of which controls were more valuable didn't last long. Still, it wasn't a bad twist - could certainly have affected my decisions if it had become clear I was running late at any point.
Wanted to get in an easy run just to get my blood flowing and stretch things out so started one despite not feeling great. This turned out to be a mistake as my not feeling great was the onset of a nasty cold
