2. 690m 5:22 3 +11 4% 98.8 7:46   980m 7:04 4 +19 5% 7:12 The control was not where I expected it to be. It was up a bit higher than I expected. As I was coming in to the area, I went quite slowly. When I didn't see the marker immediately, I was worried it might be IN the depression. Then I caught sight of the top of the control stand.
3. 410m 3:02 7 +28 18% 89.6 7:23   1390m 10:06 3 +40 7% 7:15
4. 940m 7:03 4 +20 5% 98.1 7:30   2330m 17:09 2 +41 4% 7:21 I caught Wyatt at the marshy stuff near the control. I knew he'd gone out ahead of me but wasn't sure how far. I was glad to have some company because I knew it would help me keep a steady pace -- running alone would increase the chance I'd get lazy and go even slower than normal.
5. 460m 3:41 4 +20 10% 93.8 8:00   2790m 20:50 3 +1:01 5% 7:28 I saw the chance to use the road and took it. Wyatt was a bit behind me but didn't go all the way to the road. I got away from him (he told me later that he'd heard me bashing through the woods as I left 5).
6. 490m 4:06 5 +39 19% 85.9 8:22   3280m 24:56 3 +1:36 7% 7:36 I didn't see the road as an option -- and I don't think I'd have taken it if I'd seen it.
7. 1670m 12:34 6 +2:06 20% 90.4 7:31   4950m 37:30 5 +3:42 11% 7:34 I stayed fairly close to the line. I should have gone a bit to the north for better running. Eric Buckley said that he took a compass bearing and noticed that his shadow pointed straight to the control, so he followed his shadow. I never notice that sort of thing.

I saw a hill to my right with a flag on it. I ran up and checked and it was not right. I realized I was almost certainly east of my marker. Instead of taking time to relocate, I headed west toward the trail. Before the run, I'd decided that if I boomed a control, I would quickly bail out to a distinct feature rather than trying to relocate from where I was. I thought I could afford to lose a little time by bailing out and didn't need to take a chance that might lead to a huge boom. So, when I saw that I was not at the right knoll, I bailed out right away. When I saw the trail about 50 meters ahead of me, I realized where I was, and headed north to the marker.

13. 555m 5:10 8 +1:34 44% 76.7 43 9:18   7605m 1:01:32 5 +3:06 5% 8:05 I ran along the old rock wall and probably ran a bit harder than I should have. My legs were quite tired when I reached 13.
14. 210m 2:04 12 +40 48% 73.7 9:50   7815m 1:03:36 6 +3:29 6% 8:08 Tired legs -- I went slowly to 14. I noticed my mind was wandering.
15. 375m 3:54 8 +50 27% 84.0 10:24   8190m 1:07:30 6 +3:43 6% 8:14 I went to the northwest to go around the uncrossable marsh.
16. 620m 5:13 8 +24 8% 92.4 8:24   8810m 1:12:43 6 +3:53 6% 8:15 I was going to use the clearings, but for some reason changed my mind and went straight.
17. 540m 3:39 8 +39 22% 85.4 6:45   9350m 1:16:22 6 +4:06 6% 8:10 Ho hum.....my foot/ankle hurt on running down the hill.
18. 400m 3:04 4 +33 22% 89.3 7:40   9750m 1:19:26 6 +3:26 5% 8:08 Fell down on the way to 18 and smashed my leg, ribs and elbow (making it difficult to sleep on Sunday night). As I was leaving 17, I saw Bill C. running (quite fast) toward 17.
19. 890m 6:32 5 +38 11% 92.2 7:20   10640m 1:25:58 6 +3:49 5% 8:04 Trail. My legs were tired. When I got near the trail, I walked a bit, then walked a bit on the trail. James and Bill were on the trail. I decided to start running.
20. 540m 3:53 4 +23 11% 94.1 7:11   11180m 1:29:51 6 +4:12 5% 8:02
