I've done this run several times in the past few years.  Since my marathon scheduled for Dec 6 was cancelled, I decided to race this route.  It is much tougher the faster the pace, due to trail roughness.  I saw a bobcat who was not seemingly bothered with my passing by.  I got off trail at one point and decided to run through an ash pile to get back on course till I felt my feet really warming up!  Had to backtrack about 100 yards instead.  Probably came very close to melting my race shoes.

I figure my time was roughly equivalent to a 2:50 road marathon.  So I'm sure I'll have to come back and try to lower the time even more.
