First time I've run this entire route. I've done portions of it many times but the last 3 miles were all new to me (and thankfully mostly downhill). I thought I would have a tailwind for much of this run based on conditions at the trailhead but ended up with a headwind for at least 70% of this beast!
The route is only 8.2 miles so no need for water/resupply. I brought a hydration pack but really didn't need it.
I gotta give a shout-out to my wife for dropping me off at the trailhead to start and meeting me at the finish point.
Overall, awesome route! I may have to give the out & back a try sometime!!
