Well, that was epic. I really didn't think i was up to the effort required for this race, but i was pushed to the start to get out there and do it, so i did. Things started off pretty good and i think i chose the best route to 3, but after a while i lost contact with the map. This occured as the spurs were changing from a E-W direction to a NE-SW direction inadvertantly pulling me left of the leg. The vegetation wasn't quite as mapped and i didn't notice that i was a bit off course. I managed to keep moving and relocate on the way, but it cost me a bit of time. Probably would've beaten Bruce on this leg if i stayed in control. The rest of the course was pretty good, but fatigue really was setting in and i struggled to maintain focus. Looks like i actually sped up a bit at the end on the flatter portions of the map. I survived!
