First attempt at running this route and underestimated how technical it is. No rest for your legs dodging roots and rocks with steep ups and downs. By the time I got to the turn around I was spent. I left a bag for supplies at Black Beach, (water and nutrition). A good accessible drop off spot. 

My friend Mark McColgan ran me in for the last 3 km (Running with friends when you have no gas in the tank is just as good as GU) 

Overall, just a gorgeous trail, hard not to stop to take in all the ocean views and giant cliffs.

Didn't set the bar too high. I'll be back to do it again, in the meantime get at er and set the bar higher.
