I ran the TMT north to south with the goal of breaking the overall FKT set by Bryan Bhark the previous weekend. I was a few minutes down by the top of K3 and never quite made up the time, but managed to set the women's record. This trail has everything - steep climbs, rolling single track, and sneaky technical sections hidden by switchbacks and ferns. The trail was extremely overgrown near the clear cuts - 6 ft high blackberries, thimbleberries, and trees all weighted down by the solid mist but that's just part of the magic of Tiger.

Huge thanks to Ladia and Adam for coming out to cheer, and to my fiance for the post run coffee, snacks, and general willingness to facilitate my running shenanigans.
