This was a pretty straight forward course and fun. Felt fairly strong running. Didn't make all the best route choices.

S-1 Got spit out pretty far after the underpass, took me a few seconds to get my bearings.
1-2 Had read the control description, "thicket", but still was expecting something like a bush and confused when I didn't see anyhing. The slope was steep.
2-3 Meant to run diagonally after the first set of buildings. That would have been better.
3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11 All of these went fine, I was working hard to stay ahead on the map. Running fairly hard, getting tired.
11-12 Whoops. The right route looked shorter but it meant turning around, going the way I'd just come, uphill, and then go down some stairs. So I took the lazy left route. Didn't think it was that bad (split is okay place-wise), but I ran the leg in my cool down -- 30s faster to the right!
12-13-14 Okay
14-15 Didn't see the gap in the fence past the control, but actually it's not much faster -- also ran the other choice afterwards and it was only a few seconds faster.
15-16-F Okay, working hard still.

This was decent. Bummed about the route choice -- tired decision making is no good. Takes work to make yourself do the right thing.
