Was planning for a MUCH faster day than what ended up happening, but glad I finished! 

Placed a cooler at mile 12.5 (the archery building) and again at the Monastery turnaround. That pretty much ended up being enough water. Plenty of available restrooms every 4-5 miles, but I didn't need to stop. 

Really glad I decided to do this as a supported FKT, as I would NOT have finished without my friends joining me for the last 19 miles. 

Strava had me at 40 miles and that didn't really include any extra distance. Was using my phone because my Garmin watch battery is weak. 

This time could easily be dropped below 8 hours, but be careful that it is mostly downhill the first 12 miles, rolling hills from 12-19, and then what felt like a lot of uphill the final 9 miles!
