I ran the National Trail across South Mountain from end to end, and back. I began my journey at 5:25am out of Pima Canyon Trailhead. I ran from East to West, and then back. I ran fully unsupported - I carried 1.5 liters of water on my back and 16oz of water in my front flask. I also carried all of my fuel in my running pack. Although I ran low on water the last few miles, I had so much fun out there and felt really strong throughout the run! The weather was perfect and the wildflowers were a great distraction. South Mountain is my home mountain where I do most of my trail running. It was so cool to run the length of the mountain and back!
