Started as soon as it was light enough (6:17ish), perfect breezy late summer/early fall day! Not humid, not too hot, not too cold! Very wet trails. only passed abou 5-7 groups the whole 23 miles! Most of the springs/streams were full and the spigot at the road crossing was on so I never ran out of water. Took a bad fall going down towards road at mile 11, took downhills a bit easier after that since I couldn't catch myself with my wrist anymore (I think it is just jammed). Beautiful day and hard route. Footing is so variable - rocks, roots, scree, and soft pine! The views seemed like they would be great but I did not stop to look, will have to go back!
Can definitely be done faster - I took some of the flats at a walk when tired and didn't go as hard as I could have up Sugarloaf. Really happy with my time though and hope it gets more fast women out doing this awesome challenging route!!!
