    Here is the Surebridge '07, Day 2, M35-45 map, and here are my routes.

    Nice weather, nice map, nice meet. It will be tough to trump this one as best meet of the year. Its fun to get on some technical terrain for a change. I was very happy with day one, making only 1 30 second mistake on #4. Wil Smith, however, says if you're not making at least 1-2 minutes of mistakes in this sort of terrain, you're not running fast enough, which is probably true.

    I certainly wasn't running fast enough on day 2 either, but I still managed to have a sloppy first part of the race, probably making about 5 minutes of mistakes. I did clean my act up in the second half, but it wasn't quite enough to place.

    Still an encouraging weekend. I seem to be improving very slowly injury/fitness wise. Still not close to 100%, but better than 2 weeks ago.

    And now for something completely different -- this isn't something you see in the woods every day, so imagine my shock at seeing this pricey ride in mine when I drove to my house. Moral of the story: If you park on a hill, don't leave your car in neutral ...
