At Rhonda and Charlie's, we had a bit of wake up yoga before breakfast which included homemade cinnamon rolls by Barb and Dave. Thanks to you all, but especially our gracious (as always) hosts the DeWeeses.

Brown course at Mountain Lakes in N Salem NY (JROTC meet), 3.8 km / 115m climb. About 40 and sunny, though it clouded up by the time we left. I'll take it for December, though. :-)
Others leaving the road on my attack for #3 distracted me (I should have stopped) and I climbed too high and found #4 first. After spending more time than I expected after leaving the road I had checked control codes in case I did see #4 first; then I just had to double back. No problems after that, beyond a thorn in my left heel that kept bothering me after my return to #4, until I sat down on the leg from 7-8 to deal with it...3 minute or so delay. Mistake at 3 and sit-down later cost me about 10 minutes.
1st on the course*, ahead of the 80 year old men. :-/
*When I left. Apparently someone else finished faster.

Short course at RHINO. I was just going to walk but when I saw others out there got competitive. Missed a turn to 8 and had to bounce back off the bigger trail.
Added: 1:5000 map, 1.9 km, 90m climb
Colder than earlier race, and dark, but rain held off until later. :-)
Leg 1 includes a stop at the car to get a windbreaker layer (my raincoat, which was useful Sunday morning) and put it on. I was surprised to have caught up to Lyn who had started several minutes earlier but it turns out she headed to 10 first instead of 1. Both were hilltops. :-(
