Lappee-Jukola 1st leg (wet). Felt pretty bad for this race too. Bad route choice to the 1st control - planned to run straight but got pushed right in the green and stuck in a pack - lost 2min. This somewhat decided my race as it was very difficult to pass in the forest after that.

The next part was quite OK. Made a mistake to the tricky 9th control, then lost time to the 10th before regaining focus. Felt sick like last year already from the 6th control, it finally got me after the run through, and puked going up the hill and then again just before the fields in the finish. Ideally would have been 4-5min faster, but quite surprised I wasn't further behind the leaders with my time loss and how I felt (positive?).
