TCT NOBO Supported. 4:30am start in the dark and fog. Got a little lost around mile 2 near twin ponds and added an extra mile and a half on after backtracking. This was the only spot on the trail I had trouble navigating. Some spots of the trail had overgrown fawns and thistle. Ran into some thunderstorms early on. Overall trail conditions and weather were fair for the TCT. Had aid at Potter Mtn Road and The Pass. Hit the finish line in 6:45:52 and turned back in hopes to get an out and back effort. Humidity was between 90-100% all day and only made it back to The Pass. Great climbs and a lot of technical trail sections.
